What you hear on this evening is excellent orchestral sound at an international level.

The fact that the symphony orchestra from Kyiv was honored with standing applause after its Wiesbaden tour concert (…) had not only political, but also purely musical reasons.
The musicianship of the Kyiv Orchestra made the deepest impression of the evening. One sensed that they wanted to convey a message, that they wanted to have an impact on reality with their music. (…) The interpretation, which skilfully used the means of historically informed performance practice and was coordinated by the chief conductor Luigi Gaggero in an organic and suggestive way, made you experience this good humoured piece like architecture with columns, arches and ornaments entwined with plants.
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 2022

The conducting arabesque-like, vivid, yes, almost virtuosic - the overall performance in its perfection (…) of an orchestra which I’ll never forget!

The Kyiv Symphony Orchestra – a young orchestra with a large proportion of women – bewitches with a delicate, lively sound under the direction of its immensely committed Italian chief conductor Luigi Gaggero.

Lyatoshynsky (…) it could hardly be played more carefully and masterfully than by Gaggero and his team from Kyiv.
(…) This level is unbelievable - considering that the male members of the orchestra must not have practiced at all for many weeks.
Berliner Morgenpost, 2022

Symphonic poems by the Ukrainian masters Borys Lyatoshynsky (1894 – 1968) and Yevhen Stankovych (born 1942) were interpreted under its precise and heartfelt chief conductor Luigi Gaggero, each poem unfolded impressive structures after a tender beginning. One could experience here a perfectly cohesive music-making and a multifaceted sound culture.
Ostthüringher Zeitung

Kyiv was the musical home of Borys Lyatoshynskyj (1895 - 1968), whose four-movement fourth symphony entitled "Peace shall defeat War" musically anticipated what is currently happening in Ukraine. However, the orchestra did not let the peace sound as a tender vision, but as a recurring, passionately melodic longing, which ultimately managed to suppress the roaring, aggressive tumult of battle - driven to the extreme by Gaggero. Only in victory did it return in filigree delicacy in the last notes.
