Overview
Odessa is a city with a rich musical and cultural history. Let's discover why so many musicians came out from Odessa, what inspires poets and writers, why they returned here for a breath of this unique air. And you will feel why the main words of our anthem are "there is a city that I see in my dreams". You will be guided through the lives of the world-famous musicians who were born and studying in Odesa. You will hear how Odesa inspired them and what they brought to our culture. This tour is all about classical music exactly in Odesa, the local mix of culture and art. You could listen to some piano compositions by Liszt, Chopin or Rachmaninov. The tour route is in-between the Academy of Music, Music College, two Music Schools, Philharmonic, Opera and Ballet House, and modern places for listening to music.
