A unique symphonic concert combining Spanish, Italian and Polish works will take place at the Henryk Wieniawski Lublin Philharmonic on 10 January 2020 at 7.00 p.m. The Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Tomasz Bugaj will perform along with exceptional violinists: Roman Lasocki and Marta Gębska.
The concert will begin with the legendary Bolero by Maurice Ravel – a one-movement orchestral piece based on the Spanish dance, originally composed as a ballet commissioned by Russian actress and dancer Ida Rubinstein. Capriccio Italien by Pyotr Tchaikovsky was inspired by the composer's trip to Italy. The work opens with a brief bugle call and is filled with references to the melodies heard by Tchaikovsky during the carnival in Florence.
The second part of the concert will present works by Polish composers. We will listen to Grażyna Bacewicz's last concert work – Violin Concerto No. 7 – which has widely and comprehensively exploited the technical and sounding possibilities of the violin. The evening will culminate with Henryk Wieniawski's Violin Concerto No. 1 in F sharp minor. The work was dedicated to the King Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia.
