Mozart Festival in Lviv
This article discusses the importance of hosting the LvivMozArt Festival in Lviv (Ukraine). It is shown how within the short period of its existence (three years) the festival has tended to develop rapidly and received meaningful sponsorship. Attention is focused on its art director and founder, conductor Oksana Lyniv, who has set herself the goal of organizing a classic festival with non-standard formats, but with a high-quality performance of classical music. It is noted that a distinctive feature of the LvivMozArt festival is the combination of different formats: live art performance, academic symposium, chamber and symphony concerts, and opera. This article analyzes the literary bias of the academic symposium entitled “Literary Impressions in Music”, which was attended by prominent scholars from Ukraine, Austria, Germany and Poland. It is argued that the biggest event of the festival was its opening. The concert was dedicated to the 125th anniversary of the birth of the Austrian writer Joseph Roth and the memory of the Holocaust victims.
