TOS

Toruń Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Jerzy Salwarowski will perform works of Zygmunt Noskowski and Mieczysław Karłowicz on April 12, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in the CKK Jordanki Concert Hall in Toruń.

Zygmunt Noskowski, who belonged to the late Romantic period, was strongly inspired by nature and Polish landscapes, which is exemplified by the Eye of the Sea overture. Written in 1875, it is one of the early, youthful works of Noskowski. However, it already testifies to the artistic maturity of the composer and freedom from the influence of other artists, in particular Mendelssohn and Schumann.

The Eternal Songs symphonic poem by Mieczysław Karłowicz is a personal statement of the composer's individual style. This symphonic triptych is composed of Song of Everlasting Yearning, Song of Love and Death and Song of Eternal Being. Although the work does not have an exact literary program, one can hear the inspiration that Karłowicz derived from lonely treks in the Tatra Mountains.

The programme of the concert will also include the Leonore Ouverture No. 3 by Ludwig van Beethoven and the Cello Concerto No.1 in A minor, Op. 33 by Camille Saint-Saëns. The solo part will be performed by the concertmaster of the cello group of the Toruń Symphony Orchestra, Karol Wroniszewski.
