PROGRAM NOTE

Young pianist Osin gets in a cancer clinic with a diagnosis of Ewing's sarcoma, where he meets a girl, Julia, a talented artist. There is sympathy between them and they try to spend together their free time, forgetting about their diagnoses to live as normal young people. But once the disease has appeared, Osin understands that Julia’s condition is getting worse and the medicine here is useless. Believing in the power of music, Osin decides to perform the Rachmaninoff's [Piano Concerto No. 2] in the clinic, hoping that it could help Julia.
