Formed in 1918, the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine is considered to be one of the finest symphony orchestras in Eastern Europe. Its first conductor was Oleksander Horilyj, followed by Natan Rachlin from 1937 until 1962. Stefan Turchak, Volodymyr Kozhuchar, Fedir Hlushchenko, Igor Blazhkov and Theodore Kuchar subsequently conducted the Orchestra as its Principal  Conductors. Soloists included Artur Rubinstein, Yehudi Menuhin, David Oistrakh, Sviatoslav Richter, Mstislav Rostropovich, Emil Gilels, and others.

Pianist Alexei Grynyuk will be joining the Orchestra.

Kiev-born pianist Alexei Grynyuk displayed tremendous interest in music from his early childhood and at just six years old started giving his first concerts.

He attracted wide attention at the age of thirteen when he won the first prize at the Sergei Diaghilev All-Soviet-Union piano competition in Moscow.
By then he had already been touring Eastern Europe as a soloist as well as performing Mozart and Chopin piano concertos with Ukrainian orchestras.
Later he went on to achieve numerous awards at international piano competitions including first prizes at the Vladimir Horowitz International Piano Competition in Kiev and the Shanghai International Piano Competition in China.
Equally at home in Classical, Romantic and Twentieth-Century repertoire Alexei Grynyuk has been invited to give solo recitals at many prestigious venues and festivals around the world, among them:

Their program is :-

Yevhen Stankovych – Suite from the ballet The Night Before Christmas. He is a contemporary Ukrainian composer.

Robert Schumann – Piano Concerto in A minor, op. 54. Pianist: Alexei Grynyuk. Well known and much lauded in Europe.
