Date extension request[edit]

Here I request for a new end date - 30-04-2019. I had to postpone main events because the final decision for supporting this grant were made only in late October so we could plan our activities only in December. Later I had to postpone events due to anomaly early winter in Ukraine. In early November we had very frosty weather, this causes illness main participants, so the most important events were postponed once more. Nevertheless we performed a great part of work - Julie Gershunska finished her work with a full translation of Schubert`s "Winterreise" (23 songs) and Maksim Strikha finished with translations of Rachmaninov`s "Franceska da Rimini". Also we involved new people for "Franceska da Rimini" who have a good experience in National operetta as soloists. This makes me sure performance and recordings of "Franceska da Rimini" will be good. So, I request additional four months to be sure we will make it in time. Traditionally January is a month of vacations and February is a month of infinite snow collapses in Kyiv which makes any big plans quite risky. So March and April are much more preferable for serious projects. Kindly request to extend the end date to April 30, 2019 --A1 (talk) 13:44, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Date and amount extension[edit]

Here is a request for a new end date of grant.

For this time we performed and recorded Winterreise by F.Schubert, and preparations for performing Francesca ada Rimini by Rachmaninov. Our activities included 3 concerts devoted to Schubert`s translations, 2 in Kyiv and 2 in Kharkiv. During this concert we prepared sheet scores and took audio and video recordings. Now these recordings are under processing and some of them could be seen on page uk-wikipedia article about Winterreise and wikisource category of Schubert`s songs. In the same time we prepared full klavier of Rachmaninnov`s Francesca da Rimini with Strikha`s translations (File:Rachmaninov Francheska da Rimini clavier op 25 ukrainian.pdf) but did not performe it yet. It was quite difficult for singers and they demand a lot of time for learning this opera. We planned a first performance on June, 24 in Scientist`s Hall.

As for this time we spent almost all the budget. This is a table as for 30.04.2019.
