Dzyga Jazz Quartet anniversary concert (within the framework of the ‘Flugery Lvova’ international jazz festival) Lviv Philharmonic Concert Hall (7 Chaikovskoho Str,) 4 May from 19.00. Festival to run 1-3 May in the inner courtyard of Lviv City Council.
One of the highlights of this year’s annual ‘Flugery Lvova’ international jazz festival will be a gala concert in honour of the elder statesmen of Lviv jazz, the celebrated Dzyga Jazz Quartet. The four men behind this singular Lviv jazz institution (Volodymyr Kit, Arkadiy Orekhov, Velentyn Uchanin and Andriy Nasolskiy) will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of their fruitful collaboration and many of group’s fans will be eager to show their appreciation at this headlining affair. Expect plenty of improvisation at this gala event courtesy of Lviv’s finest jazz performers as they mingle with visiting jazz musicians participating elsewhere in the festival programme. This event will actually come after the official closure of the festival, which this year will see performers from all over Europe and the Near East participating daily in what is Ukraine’s premier jazz event. This is fast becoming the most laid back entrée into the summer tourism high season, and with more and more visitors flocking to Lviv it is certainly no bad thing for everybody to chill out a little and enjoy the jazz vibe!
