Ukrainian accordionist killed in russian missile attack on Vinnytsia

On July, 14, russian missiles struck the centre of the Ukrainian city Vinnytsia killing at least 23 people including three children. The missiles hit a car park of the nine-storey “Yuvelirniy” office and damaged nearby residential buildings at around 10:50 (07:50 GMT), as said by Ukrainian officials. More than 100 were injured in the attack in this city, which is far away from the eastern frontline.

Among the killed was Halyna Oleksiv, the Ukrainian musician. She graduated from Vinnytsia Specialized College of Arts named after Mykola Leontovych in the accordion class, and then Lviv National Musical Academy named after Mykola Lysenko.

During the rocket attack, she was with her 8-years-old son, who survived but stays in intensive care.

About the Author

The Claquers is a Ukrainian online magazine devoted to classical music that unites a group of music critics with the mission to foster a critical conversation about art music in Ukraine and beyond. The Claquers organization was founded in June 2020 by musicologist Stas Nevmerzhytskyi and three colleagues: musicologist Dzvenyslava Safian, music theorist Liza Sirenko, and cultural critic Oleksandr Ostrovskyi.

The publication’s provocative name suggests the context in which The Claquers was conceived. After two previous generations of proactive critics who had careers in education and cultural promotion, classical music criticism was limited to either positive reviews or no reviews at all. A fresh and uncensored eye on events in classical music life in Ukraine was needed to shake up the musical community and complete the country’s classical music ecosystem.

Unlike in western Europe and North America, art music audiences in Ukraine are much younger. The collective of writers with The Claquers is also young, and has taken on the task of explaining to these new listeners why a long tradition of classical music in Ukraine exists, and how it became a part of today’s cultural life. As a group The Claquers considers its main goals: to educate about contemporary classical Ukrainian music, to build bridges with popular culture by publishing about diverse musical genres and other arts (such as music in literature or in film), to expand the critical tools of music criticism with audio podcasts, and to cultivate audiences abroad via an English version of the website.

The Claquers was made possible by generous funding that enabled its establishment and is sustained by the generosity of donors on Patreon. This singular and engaged Ukrainian online hub devoted to classical music continues to engage people in this music and invite new authors.
