Roman Rewakowicz conducted Ukrainian orchestras in the last months of 2021, presenting a program called “Polish Music in Ukraine.” Works by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, Stanisław Moniuszko and Wojciech Kilar, among others, were played. He presented it in Mariupol, Chernivtsi, Dnipro, Kharkov – today we hear about these cities in the context of the war.
