Katowice | Weinberg in Poland


A concert on February 9, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.in the headquarters of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice will feature chamber music works of Mieczysław Wajnberg and Grażyna Bacewicz in the interpretation of the Silesian Quartet and the pianist Wojciech Świtała.

String Quartet No. 12, Op. 103 (1969/1970) is one of the experimental works of Mieczysław Wajnberg, filled with despair, drama and irony. It includes elements of serial music of the Second Viennese School of Arnold Schönberg, banned by Soviet ideologists, and allusions to Bela Bartók's string quartets. Piano Quintet No. 1 (1952) is one of the most frequently performed works of Grażyna Bacewicz. This popularity is due to the beauty of the themes, the charming game of contrasts, and the phantasmagoric "thoughts" (the idiom of the so-called "night music" by Bartók).
