 Jazz Poetry Month: Vadim Neselovskyi
Odesa—A Musical Walk Through a Legendary City

Monday, May 16 at 7:00 PM EDT
(Run time: 90 minutes) 

From the City of Asylum — I wish I could attend in 3D but online is such a privilege–

“The most promising of the young improvisers.” (The Guardian/UK).  “Extraordinary playing” (Los Angeles Times). “A strong pianist [as well as] a composer who blends form and freedom in new ways.”  (All AboutJazz). 

The world at large has been inundated with news from the recent Russian incursion into the country of Ukraine. While the storms of war gather, pianist and composer Vadim Neselovskyi chooses to remind people of the country’s important cultural legacy. Neselovskyi has created a full-length solo piano piece inspired by his hometown on the Black Sea—and a Unesco World Heritage City of Literature—Odesa.  

Odesa: A Musical Walk Through a Legendary City plays like a theater piece, using melodies, rhythms, and multimedia projections to fully immerse the audience into the work. This concert is a celebration and honoring of Ukraine’s important cultural heritage. 

A child prodigy in still-Soviet Ukraine, Vadim Neselovskyi became the youngest student to be accepted into the famed Odesa Conservatory. He moved to the US to study at Berklee College of Music, where was selected by Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Terence Blanchard to attend the Thelonious Monk Institute. Learn more.
