Katowice | Italian Inspirations at the Silesian Philharmonic

FS

The final concert of the 7th International Days of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki will take place on 6 December 2019. The Italian artists will take music lovers on a musical journey through steppe landscapes and film-like images.

Massimiliano Caldi, the winner of the 6th Grzegorz Fitelberg International Competition for Conductors, will lead the Silesian Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, which will perform together with Raffaele Trevisani, an excellent flutist with extraordinary sensitivity and numerous international successes. The evening will open with the first symphonic poem in Polish music literature  – The Steppe, Op. 66 by Zygmunt Noskowski, particularly valued by Massimiliano Caldi. Then we will listen to the Concerto-Cantata, Op. 65 for flute and orchestra by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, in which the outstanding soloist will have the opportunity to show the whole range of his virtuoso skills. The concert will culminate in the Nino Rota's La Strada Suite, combining themes from the film of the same title directed by Federico Fellini.

Co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage from the Culture Promotion Fund under the "Music" programme implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance.
