Warsaw Philharmonic Ensembles will perform again in August and September as part of the series "Yes, we play!". The symphonic concerts on 13 and 14 August 2020 will feature works by Romuald Twardowski and Richard Strauss.
Due to safety reasons the National Philharmonic online concerts in June were cancelled, but for August and September the institution prepared a series of various events meant as a bridge between the interrupted artistic season 2019/20 and the new coming one 2020/21.
On 13 and 14 August Maestro Andrzej Boreyko will conduct the National Philharmonic Orchestra in a unique program, which will include the three-part Serenade for string orchestra by Romuald Twardowski – the nestor of Polish composers, who celebrated his 90th birthday in June, and the nine-part orchestral suite The Middle Class Gentleman, Op. 60 by Richard Strauss, originally performed as music to the Molière comedy. Andrzej Seweryn will take part in this concert as the narrator.
During the next events we will hear, among others, choral works by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki performed by the National Philharmonic Choir and songs by Romuald Twardowski interpreted by Tomasz Konieczny. At the end of September, the final concert of the 63rd "Warsaw Autumn" International Festival of Contemporary Music will take place. The National Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir together with the Chopin University BigBand and conductors: Andrzej Boreyko, Maciej Tomasiewicz and Bartosz Michałowski will perform compositions by contemporary artists. Some of them (such as works by Polish artists Mikołaj Laskowski and Joanna Woźna) were commissioned by the "Warsaw Autumn" Festival and the National Philharmonic.
