The Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine, based in the medieval city of Lviv, was officially established on September 27, 1902. On this day, the first concert of the newly formed orchestra took place in the Philharmonic Theater of Count Stanislav Skarbko. In 1933, the orchestra became incorporated as the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine. Since the 1950s, many of the world’s greatest musicians have performed with the orchestra, including Sviatoslav Richter, Heinrich and Stanislav Neuhaus, Emil Gilels, Maria Yudina, David and Igor Oistrakh, Mstislav Rostropovich, and Gidon Kremer. Important pages in the history of the orchestra have included collaborations with famous conductors, including Kirill Kondrashin, Fuat Mansurov, Nathan Rakhlin, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, and Reinhold Gliere.
The orchestra is currently led by Principal Conductor Theodore Kuchar, the most recorded conductor of his generation. He has collaborated with major artists such as James Galway, Jessye Norman, Lynn Harrell, Itzhak Perlman, and Yo-Yo Ma and served as the Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of two of Europe’s leading orchestras, the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine and the Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra (formerly the Czech Radio Orchestra). He has been honored with numerous accolades for his work, including the BBC Record of the Year, Chamber Music America Record of the Year, Gramophone Magazine's Editor's Choice, the WQXR Record of the Year, and a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Instrumental Album.
Violin soloist Vladyslava Luchenko has won several prestigious prizes, including the top prize in the Tibor Varga International Violin Competition, the Rahn Music Prize, and the David Oistrakh Violin Competition while receiving special recognition at the Queen Elizabeth of Brussels Competition. She has also performed as a soloist with the Luzerne Symphony Orchestra in the Zurich Tonhalle, the Verbier Festival, and the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine as well as numerous additional solo and chamber music engagements.
