The Henryk Wieniawski Philharmonic in Lublin invites you on 11 September 2020 at 7.00 p.m. to a symphonic concert in the "Time is Love: a tribute to the Primate of the Millennium in the year of beatification" series. The concert will feature Krzysztof Jakowicz, this year's winner of the Golden Fryderyk Award in the classical music category.
On 3 October 2019, Pope Francis approved a decree that opens the way to the beatification of the Primate of the Millennium. The ceremony was to take place in June this year, but due to the threat of the epidemic, the event was postponed to an unspecified date, so that many of the faithful from all over the world could join the celebration on the spot. The common experience of the Primate's beatification is currently continued in the spiritual dimension, through the art of music.
The September concert at the Lublin Philharmonic will begin with the Etude in B flat minor, Op. 4 No. 3 by Karol Szymanowski, arranged for symphony orchestra by Grzegorz Fitelberg. It is a piece from a collection of etudes written between 1900 and 1902, dedicated to the composer's cousin and pianist Natalia Neuhaus, one of Grzegorz Fitelberg's muses. The work shows clear influence of Fryderyk Chopin's style. Performed by the Lublin Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Marek Pijarowski, we will also hear Joseph Haydn's Symphony in D major No. 104 and W. A. Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 in A Major KV 219 – the most frequently performed and recorded composition of this genre in the repertoire of Krzysztof Jakowicz.
Co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of the "Music" programme operated by the Institute of Music and Dance.
