Statement from the Razumovsky Founder cellist Oleg Kogan
“Since 24th February we have been witnessing a devastating brutal war against Ukraine and its people. Barbaric bombardments have destroyed large parts of Kharkiv – the peaceful, cultured, wonderful city where I was born, went to school and received my musical education. We are donating the proceeds of this Season’s remaining concerts at the Razumovsky Academy and aim to raise further funds to help the people of Ukraine, focusing on the City of Kharkiv. I am grateful to the many musicians who are contributing their performances, and to the Patrons and Friends of The Razumovsky Trust for their generosity. The raised money will be directed to help lift civilian morale across the war affected regions by supporting brave local musicians who will give live performances to displaced people. When the war is over we will help restore the rich musical life of Kharkiv. I hope you will join us and support a cause which is so close to my heart.” Oleg Kogan.
