Odessa Classics

brief information

Odessa – the pearl of the the Black Sea – was host of seven editions of “Odessa Classics” music festival every June from 2015 to 2021. After a huge success from the very beginning “Odessa Classics” is established as a top level European Festival with world stars of classical music such as Daniel Hope, Eugeny Kissin, Pinchas Zukerman, Joshua Bell, Maxim Vengerov, Mischa Maisky, Matthias Goerne, Michael Guttman, Thomas Hampson and with Chamber Orchestras from Zurich, Berlin, Brussels among others.

But the war changed everything and from 2022 it became impossible to hold the festival in Ukraine. 2022-2023 “Odessa Classics” managed to find a new home in Europe – with 35 concerts in six countries – Switzerland, Estonia, Greece, Germany, Poland and Lithuania.

2024 Odessa Classics will celebrate its 10th Jubilee. There will be editions in Vilnius (28 march), Zurich (4 -9 April), Luzern (25 June), Bremen (24 -29 September) and more. This next step of the festival will endeavour to include expansion into other European capitals and to further enlarge the Odessa Classics brand.
