One of the New Era Orchestra’s strategic tasks is collaboration with world-class soloists. Thus, the project Musical Bridges aims to foster cultural exchange between Ukrainian and internationally renowned solists.

The New Era Orchestra (Ukraine), art director and conductor – Tetyana Kalinichenko, and the world star Christoph Sietzen (percussion, Austria/Luxembourg) will perform in Kyiv a unique concert programme, which includes the premieres in Ukraine:

Avner Dorman (Israel) Percussion Concerto “Frozen in Time”

Emmanuel Séjourné (France) “Attraction Solo” for Percussion & Tape

Rodrigo y Gabriela (Mexico) “Tamacun”, version for Three Soloists and Orchestra by Artem Roschenko (Ukraine).


“Talent of the Century or exceptional talent – there truly is no lack of superlatives for percussionist Christoph Sietzen.” – rbb Kulturradio

“Awesome technique, unrelenting intensity, tremendous power, breath-taking speed, idiosyncratic presence and a profound musicality would be some of the superlatives needed to describe the talent of the Luxembourgish-Austrian percussionist Christoph Sietzen.” – Pizzicato Magazine
