The Bronisław Huberman Częstochowa Philharmonic will inaugurate its 76th artistic season on 18 September 2020. The concert will also mark the culmination of the 75th anniversary of the institution, which, due to the epidemic, could not take place on the original date of 20 March 2020.
The programme of the event will include works related to both the Philharmonic itself and the city of Częstochowa. We will hear Violin Concerto No. 2 in D minor, Op. 22 by Henryk Wieniawski, often performed and recorded on an album by the patron of the Philharmonic, Bronisław Huberman. The solo part will be played by Mariusz Patyra – an outstanding violinist hailed as the Polish Paganini. He will be accompanied by the Symphony Orchestra of the Częstochowa Philharmonic conducted by Adam Klocek, who will debut at the Philharmonic as a composer with his new piece In Paradisum, written especially for the anniversary.
The evening will begin with the symphonic poem Orawa by Wojciech Kilar, who had a special fondness for Częstochowa, often emphasized during his visits to Jasna Góra. Performed by the Collegium Cantorum Symphony Orchestra and Choir of the Częstochowa Philharmonic, as well as soloists – soprano Ewa Biegas and baritone Robert Gierlach, we will also hear the sublime Te Deum by Antonín Dvořák. The work will mark the solemn moment for the Philharmonic, as well as the city of Częstochowa.
The concert will be accompanied by a photo exhibition "20th-century concert posters of the Częstochowa Philharmonic."
