The Papal Concert will take place on April 12, 2019 at 7:15 p.m. in the Archcathedral Basilica in Gdansk-Oliwa.
It is difficult to find a piece more appropriate to the idea of "Papal Concerts" than Agnus Dei by Krzysztof Penderecki. This short composition written for an eight-voice choir was written upon the news of the death of the Primate of the Millennium, a great friend of Karol Wojtyla – Stefan Wyszyński. During the concert it will be performed in the orchestral version by the Gdańsk Baltic Philharmonic under the direction of its concertmaster, Robert Kwiatkowski. The programme of the concert will also include Langsamer Satz by Anton Webern,Symphony No. 5 by Franz Schubert, and Fratres by Arvo Pärt in the version for violin solo, strings and percussion.
