Silesian Quartet will celebrate Zbigniew Bargielski’s 80th birthday by performing his compositions on January 21, 2017 at the Chamber Hall of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice.
First part of the evening will be dedicated to Bargielski’s music. The artists will perform String Quartet No. 4 "Le temps ardent", which was written for the Alban Berg Quartet in 1994, and - joined by clarinetist Roman Widaszek - On the Other Side of the Mirror (1988, rev. 2003) for string quartet and clarinet - a work that was called by music critic Andrzej Chłopecki "a mini concert for clarinet and mini string orchestra” which in some ways makes references to Ebony Concerto by Igor Stravinsky.
The concert will be concluded with music by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, whose Octet in E-flat major, Op. 20 (1825) will be interpreted by Silesian Quartet and Meccore String Quartet.
