OUR TOP-FIVE AUTUMN EVENTS
Fall can easily be mistaken for a season of gloom, as temperatures drop and nights grow longer. Needless to say, you’re probably going to spend more time indoors when those conditions come around. So here we are sharing with our top-five autumn events you can immerse yourself over the coming colder month.
8 November 2019 OZEF VAN WISSEM
Jozef van Wissem – Dutch minimalist composer and lute player comes to Ukraine with concerts.
In 2013, he received an award at the Cannes Film Festival for the best original music for the film Jim Jarmusch “Only Lovers Left Alive”. Joseph is known for his unconventional approach to the use of lute – an instrument typical of the Renaissance and Baroque eras, but more than unexpected in modern music. Despite the sophisticated electronic sound processing, van Wissem largely remained faithful to the traditional timbre, resonance and technique of playing the lute.
His music is concise and clear, produces a hypnotic, almost instinctive emotional impact on the listener and is performed by the author with an ascetic focus, which is reflected in the names of individual works drawn from Catholicism. Long-lasting compositions and elegant melodies as if lead the listener to another, ideal world.
We invite you to experience the delicate magic of Joseph’s music at a concert!
12 November 2019 DONNY MCCASLIN
Despite his long successful career, McCaslin grew up playing jazz ensembles with his father in Santa Cruz, California, and began recording his own material in the late 1990s. Working with David Bowie has undoubtedly influenced his vision of his craft.
McCaslin emphasizes Blow’s “wide range of moods” and some of them, such as the energetic 10-minute Break the Bond instrumental track or the chaotic Exactly four minutes of improvised music, will be familiar to his fans.
Donnie McCaslin and his band will certainly fascinate you and showcase
jazz you haven’t heard before.
They are known, they are loved, their songs are sung by full halls all over the world. Including in the capital of Ukraine. The authorities of Christian rock come to us – Skillet! And not just like that, but with a new Victorious album.
According to the frontman, the band wanted to continue the positive line of the previous Unleashed album: “While working on Victorious, I realized that Unleashed is a very energetic and fun record. We wanted to do something again – a collection of songs that will make people move forward. Well, or raise your hands up at our concerts.”
We are waiting for you at the big autumn show Skillet
