Participation of Russian artists at the 77th MFCH

Due to the dramatic development of the war – the brutal and bloody aggression of Russia against the independent nation of Ukraine, due to the violation of all provisions of international law – unfortunately, it has become impossible for us to maintain the performances performances by Eva Gevorgyan (8 August), Philipp Lynov (9 August) and a master class by Professor Natalia Trull (6-9 August), scheduled as part of the 77th International Chopin Festival in Duszniki-Zdrój.

We would like to stress that we sincerely hope that peace will be restored in the near future!

We believe also that the political situation in Russia and the possibility to travel, will allow us to welcome these and other great Russian artists to our Festival again.
Our decision is in line with the position of the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and was taken to express our full solidarity with the Ukrainian people.
