The ” Kyiv Camerata” ensemble was founded in 1977 by prominent pianist Valery Matiuchin. The ensemble was inspired by the need to perform newly created Ukrainian works by composers affiliated with the Union of Composers of Ukraine. For a long time “Kyiv Camerata” was a kind of laboratory of Ukrainian contemporary music. The ensemble premiered many works by Ukrainian composers – Yevhen Stankovych, Valentin Silvestrov, Ivan Karabits, Oleh Kyva and others. In 1993, the ensemble was granted state status. For its long-standing contribution to the development and promotion of Ukrainian musical culture, “Kyiv Camerata” was awarded the Mykola Lysenko State Prize in 1997.
