On 6 December 2019 at 7 pm. the Artur Rubinstein Łódź Philharmonic will host a symphonic concert in memory of Grażyna Bacewicz.
In 2019 Grażyna Bacewicz's name appeares in many concert programmes due to two anniversaries: the 110th anniversary of the birth and the 50th anniversary of the composer's death. The concert at the Łódź Philharmonic will be also dedicated to her memory. The programme will feature Music for strings, trumpets and percussion, which was written at the beginning of a new stage in the composer's work, associated largely with the neoclassical current. Nevertheless, the work shows interest in sonorism, related to the composer's search for new sound qualities.
The participation of trumpet played in the mentioned work somehow determined the selection of other repertoire items. We will listen to two concertos for two trumpets: one by the baroque master Antonio Vivaldi, the other by the contemporary Australian composer Brendan Collins. The programme will also include Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Divertimento and Symphony No. 1 'Classical Symphony' by Sergei Prokofiev – probably the most famous work in the neoclassical style. The Arthur Rubinstein Philharmonic Orchestra will be conducted by Agnieszka Nagórka. José Cháfer and Sławomir Cichor will perform as soloists.
The Łódź Philharmonic invites you to a pre-concert meeting at 6.15 p.m., which will be hosted by Małgorzata Janicka-Słysz.
