From the 26th of March to the 7th of April, 2023, the 27th edition of the Ludwig van Beethoven Easter Festival will take place in Warsaw. During the 13 festival days, we will listen to 10 symphonic and 5 chamber concerts, during which many recognized soloists, conductors and ensembles invited by Elżbieta Penderecka , the general director of the Festival, will perform.
The program of concerts was built around the motto of this year's edition – ‘Beethoven - between East and West’, highlighting the problem of the coexistence of cultures of the East and the West in music. In addition to the works of the master from Bonn, we will hear works by, among others, Fryderyk Chopin, Henryk Wieniawski, Witold Lutosławski and Mieczysław Wajnberg. The programme will also include the Polish premiere of the Violin Concerto ‘Genesis’ by Toshio Hosokawa.
The programme of the Festival particularly emphasizes the works of Krzysztof Penderecki, whose 90th birthday falls this year. On the 29th of March the third anniversary of Krzysztof Penderecki's death will be celebrated with a chamber concert of his works (the concert will be recorded by TVP Kultura).
