The Ukrainian pianist Vadim Neselovskyi will perform at the 57th Jazzaldia on 20 and 21 July presenting his project Odessa Suite. Tickets for the first of the two concerts taking place at the Chillida Leku Museum as a pre-Festival event, on 20 July, are now on sale. Tickets for the second concert will go on sale during the month of April.
A pianist of enormous virtuosity and versatility, composer and improviser, leader of his own bands and valued collaborator, the artist from Ukraine creates pieces of strong personal style, hugely inventive and full of unexpected moments in unique music overflowing with inspiration. In his latest project, Odessa Suite, Neselovskyi tells us about his personal history and relationship with this Ukrainian city as he takes us on an imaginary tour.
Both of the performances given by Vadim Neselovskyi will be fundraising concerts for the people of Ukraine. All proceeds will therefore go to the Chernobil Elkartea Association which has been working since 1996 with the boys and girls of the zone affected by the nuclear disaster and which is also now involved in helping to alleviate the devastating effects of this terrible war.
