PASSION and COURAGE
Ivry Gitlis about Tymur Melnyk
My mission is to serve in contributing the cultural, spiritual, social and aesthetic values in society. Music is a metaphorical language that manages to establish communication between cultures globally. Art offers me a channel for sincere communication with the world and the audience has a chance to engage and connect with each other through music.
In my role as a performing artist, I focus to express music with pure and unhinged artistic spirit, within the frames of the highest professional standard and at an international level. All projects are tailored to the specific venue, time and occasion and conceptualized to culminate in an atmosphere of a true special occasion.
The goal of all my performances is to create an impactful contrast to the mundane and to generate lasting positive memories for the audience. I follow strict quality guidelines regarding originality, tact and taste, while avoid clichés associated with the classical music genre, keeping a balance of traditional and progressive artistic ideals.
When working with others and/or giving consultations, I strive towards treating every individual with respect and attention, in manner that is professional and responsible.
As a musician with 30 years of experience, I may claim that the amount of work dedicated to intricate planning and preparation of each professional endeavor is the determining factor that generated my award-winning artistic results.
