Cologne, Kölner Philharmonie


The Russian invasion of Ukraine is an aggressive act in the heart of Europe, unimaginable until recently, which shakes the foundations of Europe. It brings endless suffering to the people of Ukraine. To support the people in this catastrophic situation, the Kölner Philharmonie is hosting this benefit concert. The power of music, which has always united peoples and broken down antagonisms, is to set a sign for peace and understanding this evening. Music by both Russian and Ukrainian composers will be heard. All musicians will waive their fees. All proceeds will go to the Ukrainian population and will be transferred to the “Bündnis Entwicklung Hilft” and the “Aktion Deutschland Hilft”.

Concerto Köln, Ensemble Musikfabrik conducted by Enno Poppe, the Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne conducted by Nicholas Collon, the WDR Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andris Poga, the Cologne piano duo Gülru Ensari and Herbert Schuch as well as the Ensemble Modern conducted by Jonathan Stockhammer will perform in a long concert night until 11 pm.
