Rzeszów | Ludomir Różycki and Joseph Haydn

PodkarpackaThe Artur Malawski Podkarpacka Philharmonic invites you on 21 May 2021 at 7.00 p.m. to a symphonic concert. The Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Tomasz Chmiel will present works by Ludomir Różycki and Joseph Haydn.

The philharmonic audience certainly remembers Ludomir Różycki's (1883-1953) symphonic poems, which are the showpiece of the orchestral music of this Young Poland composer. Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Op. 43 (1918), neo-romantic in style, reveals the most important features of his music – the expressiveness of melody and effective instrumentation. The piece places great technical demands on the soloist, giving the piano virtuosos room to show off. During the upcoming concert, the solo part will be performed by outstanding pianist Olga Zado.

The Symphony Orchestra of the Podkarpacka Philharmonic will also present one of the twelve famous London symphonies by Joseph Haydn (1732–1809), considered exemplary in classical music. These works were composed after Haydn's arrival in England at the invitation of Peter Salomon – the famous violinist who was also a music impresario. Symphony in G major No. 100 (1794) "Military" owes its title to the second movement, in which the composer introduced an extensive group of wind instruments and a larger percussion set: cymbals, a triangle and a large drum – characteristic of a military orchestra.
