#NoWar – House concert with Igor Levit

The war in Ukraine continues – and many of us feel helpless in the face of the immeasurable suffering the Russian President Vladimir Putin has brought upon the country.

The pianist Igor Levit, a member of the Green Party and a personal friend of mine, gave hope to many people with his house concerts during the corona pandemic.

Now, in the current crisis situation, it was time for a reprise: So we organized a #NoWar house concert in Berlin with musicians from Ukraine and Russia.

Our goal was on the one hand, to create a moment of comfort in the face of war. We wanted to send a signal that this is not a war of Russian society, but Putin’s war.

Donations collected during the concert benefited the doArte Foundation, which is currently building an accommodation in Bernau near Berlin for 300 people from Ukraine. In addition to providing accommodation, the foundation also promotes social and cultural interaction.

So far, more than 30,000 euros have been raised for this purpose. You can support the work of the foundation for Ukrainian refugees by making a donation.

Viola: Igor Budinstein
Sopran: Solomia Lukyanets
Violoncello: Sergej Rossoha
Violine: Anhelia Serafymovych
Klarinette: Eduard Tkachenko
