The 68th season of the Opole Philharmonic will be inaugurated by the music of its patron – Józef Elsner – on 27 September 2019 at 7 p.m.
This time, the orchestra and its director, Przemysław Neumann, will reach for the overture from the opera Jagiełło in Tenczyn. The work, existing only in the manuscript, was never recorded and certainly not performed over the last century. The beginning of the Philharmonic's season will therefore honor Elsner in the ongoing year of his 250th birthday anniversary. The programme will be complemented by Johannes Brahms'Symphony No. 2 and Fryderyk Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor, Op. 11, featuring Krzysztof Jabłoński as a soloist.
