The Artur Rubinstein Philharmonic in Łódź has prepared a unique gift for music lovers in this difficult time: the open access to the "Fryderyk 2020" award-winning album Emil Młynarski. Violin Concertos performed by Piotr Pławner and the Łódź Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Paweł Przytocki.
Emil Młynarski's Violin Concerto No. 1 in D minor, Op. 11 is available on the Soundcloud platform. The internet premiere of the Violin Concerto No 2 in D major, Op. 16 will take place on 25 March 2020 at 9.00 p.m.
Emil Mlynarski is most often associated with his huge commitment and contribution to the dynamic development of Warsaw’s musical life at the turn of the 20th century. What is more, the number of honourable and responsible functions he would hold for years ensured him the position of an undisputed authority. Today, unfortunately, hardly anyone remembers that during his lifetime the artist was also valued for his compositional output, which is confirmed by, for example, a prestigious award he received for his Violin Concerto in D minor, Op. 11. The recording performed by Piotr Pławner with the Łódź Philharmonic Orchestra is the first registration of this work in Poland. The present album perfectly fits into promotional activities of unjustly forgotten Polish music.
The album Emil Młynarski. Violin Concertos is available on sale at the DUX online store.
