POLMICMedia patronage: Polish Music Information Centre POLMIC

An important element of the mission of the Polish Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra is the restitution of forgotten masterpieces of Polish music in concert practice, and the concert on the 30th of July, 2022 at 19.00 conducted by Antoni Wit at the Witold Lutosławski Concert Studio of the Polish Radio in Warsaw will be an important step in bringing back Zygmunt Noskowski to his rightful place among the outstanding Polish and European composers of the second half of the 19th century. 

At the beginning of the 21st  century, the music of Zygmunt Noskowski slowly began to return to concert stages, and the first editions of his previously unpublished works, such as String Quartets No. 2 and 3, and Symphony No. 2, also appeared.
