- Alexander Gavrylyuk on 8 November
The goal of Live at Yours, the classical music platform curating Live at The Great, is to “always have the finest musicians”, the ones that “have something special to say musically” and to present them in venues that bridge the gap between musicians and audiences. It is clear that Live at The Great is all of this and more.
