We regret to inform you that due to health reasons Giya Kancheli cancelled his participation in the festival. The composer was scheduled to meet with the Nostalgia audience today at 4 p.m. Despite the Maestro’s absence, we are not cancelling the event. At Galeria u Jezuitów, we will have the opportunity to talk to Mariusz Grzegorzek, rector of the Film School in Łódź and the director of a documentary about Kancheli, as well as music critic Dorota Kozińska and Michał Merczyński, director of the Nostalgia Festival.
With the information about his cancellation, Giya Kancheli sent us a short message:
Unfortunately, due to health reasons, I cannot take part in this event that is so important to me. To this day, I still remember with pleasure the performance of my cycle ‘Life without Christmas’ and my stay in your wonderful country. Once again, I apologise and wish you all a Happy Christmas.
