Rzeszów | The Carnival Concert at the Subcarpathian Philharmonic


The programme of the concert on 31 January 2020 at 7.00 at the Artur Malawski Subcarpathian Philharmonic will include the most popular concert pieces.

The well-instrumented symphonic scherzo by Paul Abraham Dukas, The Sorcerer's Apprentice (1897), is a musical representation of Goethe's witty ballad, and Danse macabre (1874) by Camille Saint-Saëns presents a fantastic story about the crazy dance of death. The second of Saint-Saëns' works – Rondo capriccioso (1863) – from the very beginning charms with romantic emotionality and spectacular virtuosity of the violin. Gypsy melodies (1878) by Pablo Sarasate, a combination of the Gypsy-Hungarian motifs with czardas, expose the virtuosity of the soloist, similarly to the Poem (1896) by Ernest Chausson.

Partita (version for violin and orchestra of 1988) by Witold Lutosławski will present a different musical language. The composer wrote: "The three main movements refer, at least in terms of rhythm, to the pre-classical 18th-century tradition of instrumental music. However, this is only a kind of allusion. In terms of harmony and melody, Partita belongs to the same group of my last compositions as Symphony No. 3 and Chain I.

The works will be performed by the Subcarpathian Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Wojciech Rodek. The soloists will be Szymon Krzeszowiec, Bartłomiej Fraś, Sulamita Ślubowska and Michał Orlik.
