Opera i Filharmonia Podlaska – Europejskie Centrum Sztuki w Białymstoku imienia Stanisława Moniuszki


What artistry!

Inauguration of the 65th artistic season

The 65th jubilee artistic season we shall start with the music of the very highest standing. Sibelius’ and Lutosławski’s chefs-d’œuvre are of especially virtuosic nature. Sibelius, the most renowned Finnish composer, dreamed a dream about creating national music. Concerto in D minor, endearing with dark, cold, misty climate of the North, is one of the most beautiful works for violin, full of impressive structures which test the craftmanship of the performer. Written for the Warsaw Philharmonic, Lutosławski’s Concerto for Orchestra artfully joins elements of the Polish folklore, baroque polyphonies, and 20th-century classics. According to the composer himself it constitutes the landmark between neoclassicism and avant-garde in his artwork. The concerto’s score—requiring exceptional sensibility and the highest prowess from all performers—qualifies as one of the most exquisite in Polish orchestral music.


Concert co-organised and co-financed as part of The Institute of Music and Dance’s programme “Conductor-in-residence”
