ODESSA CLASSICS
10th INTERNATIONAL MUSIC FESTIVAL 
March – November 2024

 

Odessa Classics festival – the main Ukrainian platform for classical music.
A great experience not to be missed!

 

Odessa - the pearl of the the Black Sea – was host of seven editions of "Odessa Classics" music festival every June from 2015 to 2021. After a huge success from the very beginning "Odessa Classics" is established as a top level European Festival with world stars of classical music such as Daniel Hope, Eugeny Kissin, Pinchas Zukerman, Joshua Bell, Maxim Vengerov, Mischa Maisky, Matthias Goerne, Michael Guttman, Thomas Hampson, with Zurich, Berlin, Brussels Chamber Orchestras and many others.

 

But the war changed everything and from 2022 it became impossible to hold the festival in Ukraine. 2022-2023 "Odessa Classics" managed to find a new home in Europe – with 35 concerts in six countries - Switzerland, Estonia, Greece, Germany, Poland and Lithuania.

 

2024 Odessa Classics will celebrate its 10th Jubilee. There will be editions in Vilnius (28 march), Zurich (4 -9 April), Luzern (25 June), Bremen (24 -29 September) and more. This next step of the festival will endeavour to include expansion into other European capitals and so to further enlarge the Odessa Classics brand.

 


 

 

Alexey Botvinov and Daniel Hope

 

Danel Hope: "Thrilled to announce a closer artistic relationship with the splendid Odessa Classics Festival from 2019. Alexey Botvinov and his team have done a wonderful job of building up this festival in a beautiful and historic city. And it is both extremely humbling and inspiring to think of many of my musical heroes and their role in Odessa‘s musical life: Pyotr Stolyarsky, David Oistrakh, Nathan Milstein, Boris Goldstein, Emil Gilels, Sviatoslav Richter, Zakhar Bron and many more. Looking forward to more music in Odessa!"
