Ukraine’s Path to Freedom with Pavel Gintov

Back to popular demand! Pavel Gintov performed this concert at Suffern Library in 2017, and our audience was blown away! He is back to tell the story of Ukraine’s ongoing struggle for freedom and democracy through the prism of music. The presentation includes performance of piano works by Ukrainian composers Borys Lyatoshynsky, Viktor Kosenko, Myroslav Skoryk and Sergei Bortkiewicz and Theodore Akimenko.

See the Library’s Spring Newsletter for additional concerts on pages 1 and 6, or visit the Library’s Calendar of Events.
