Once again, the Krakow Philharmonic Orchestra has the opportunity to work with the outstanding American conductor of a lively and dynamic personality – JoAnn Falletta. On February 1, 2019 at 7.30 p.m., and February 2, 2019 at 6:00 p.m., she will conduct works of Copland, Weinberg and Zemlinsky.
The concerts are organized on the occasion of the centennial of the birth of Mieczysław Weinberg – a composer whose works are being rediscovered only two decades after his death. Weinberg's output includes 22 symphonies, four operas and over a hundred other works, including Cello Concerto from 1948, premiered nine years later by Mstislav Rostropovich. This time, the solo part will be performed by Marcin Zdunik – the first prize and Grand Prix winner at the 6th Lutoslawski International Cello Competition in Warsaw.
The programme of the concert evenings at the Kraków Philharmonic will also include El Salon Mexico by Aaron Copland – one of JoAnn Falletta's favorite composers, and Die Seejungfrau by Alexander von Zemlinsky.
