On 8 and 9 June 2019 at 4pm in the concert hall of the Sinfonia Varsovia orchestra (272 Grochowska Street) concerts "Japan" and "Moniuszko" will take place as part of the cycle "Summer Concerts at Grochowska Street".
The cycle of afternoon chamber music concerts returns to the home of Sinfonia Varsovia. Just like last year, each Saturday and Sunday at 4:00 p.m. features performances by well-known artists and rising stars on the classical music scene. There will be 30 concerts arranged by common themes: Not just for Orchestra, Japan, Moniuszko, Relax, Travelling, Improvisation, Old Warsaw. The music will be performed by traditional ensembles and some rare configurations, including a reed trio with saxophone and bass clarinet, a cello octet and a flute quartet. The works performed will feature music of many periods and genres – from the Baroque to opera arias, jazz and contemporary and improvised music.
The upcoming June concerts will feature Piotr Nikiel (tenor), Miho Kurihara (piano) and participants of the Opera Academy. The musicians will present chamber music by Stanisław Moniuszko and Japanese composers. We will also listen to romantic vocal music and works by Polish composers of the twentieth century: Ignacy Jan Paderewski, Ludomir Różycki, Witold Lutosławski, Piotr Perkowski, and Mieczysław Weinberg, whose 100th birth anniversary falls this year.
