In Donetsk, announced the impending evacuation tomorrow Kuibyshev district for which has been constantly conducted a fire. One of the pauses between shelling in the capital of the self-proclaimed republic used to organize a big concert. Outdoor acted Valentina Lisitsa, pianist of world renown, who lives abroad, but considered important for myself to come to the Donbass.
The music they listened with bated breath. Thousands of people came to the concert of the famous pianist Valentina Lisitsa. Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff in the evening allowed them to escape from the endless sounds of shelling.
“Music always helps to live, classical music – in particular. Therefore, through music, poetry, literature, perhaps, all these difficulties we somehow overcome, “- says Lyudmila Gramchakova.
” Now is the time that a concert – it’s just a vent in our lives, “- says Valery Odon.
Two months ago Valentina Lisitsa excluded of the concert of symphonic orchestra of Toronto. The reason – the political. Pianist accused of provocative comments. In social networks, she openly supported the Donbass and expressed disagreement with the policies of the Kiev authorities. Later, Valentine said – she promised to pay a fee for missing a concert in exchange for silence about the circumstances of his resignation. But it is not just refused and start a counteroffensive in social networks under the slogan “you can not drown out the music”.
“I wrote to the PM, and people were saying, you know, we are very supportive of you, we are so happy that you tell us, for us, but we have children, they go to school, they go to the same church as the staunchest opponents of the war hawks, and we are afraid. But I came to the Donbass, and people say what they want – they want to keep their culture, their language, their spiritual heritage, “- said Valentina Lisitsa.
Valentina Lisitsa is now touring around the world. But the concert in Donetsk, she says, perhaps the most important in her life.
“They are my people, this is my land. I’m from Kiev, I was born in Kiev, Odessa – is the birthplace of my family – I said Valentina Lisitsa. – It’s – the civil war, a fratricidal war. How could the brothers and sisters to push, to make them fight against each other and hate ?! And music heals human souls. I believe you know, the healing power of music. “
This concert pianist timed to the Day of Memory and Mourning for the victims of the Great Patriotic War. But the performance itself was held at the monument to the liberators of Donbas.
Many people simply do not have enough space, so settled on the grass. It is an event that can not be missed. Thousands of residents of Donetsk and the surrounding area came to this concert. And, it seems, not only to hear the game’s famous pianist, but also to remember those rare now and are valuable moments of peace.
This is only the first performance of Valentina Lisitsa. There are still a few concerts in the cities of Donbass.
“At such moments, you forget about everything. About the sorrows, some of these troubles that we have to worry about”, – says Olga Shemyakin.
