The Estonian National Symphony Orchestra (ERSO) gave a benefit concert in support of Ukraine Friday evening.
The concert took place at the Estonia Theater and proceeds were donated to Come Back Alive, which funds the purchase of protective equipment for freedom fighters in Ukraine, ERR's Menu portal reports.
Kyiv-born Ukrainian conductor Natalia Ponomarchuk, performing before an Estonian audience for the first time ever, conducted works by Mozart, Beethoven and Ukrainian composer Mykola Lysenko.
Ponomarchuk has been chief conductor of the Kyiv Chamber Orchestra since 2018.
Ukrainian pianist Alexei Botvinov also performed.
ERSO is scheduled to perform at the Odessa Festival in June this year, at Botvinov's invitation.
It was carried by ERR's Klassikaraadio on the Friday evening.
