Vladimir Jurowski, music director of Bavarian state Opera, has gathered a cast from the upcoming War and Peace to commemorate the anniversary of the Russian invasion.

The musical greeting they are sending to Ukraine is a Cossack song ‘Їхав козак за Дунай’ which caught on in Germany at the beginning of the 19th century as ‘Schöne Minka, ich muß scheiden’, with music by Ludwig van Beethoven.
