The Silesian Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra will naugurate its 76th artistic season on 11 September 2020 at 7.00 p.m. with works by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki and Ludwig van Beethoven. Janusz Wawrowski, considered one of the greatest Polish violinists of his generation, will perform as a soloist.
The new season will open with the work of the patron of the Silesian Philharmonic – Henryk Mikołaj Górecki's Three Dances, Op. 34 for orchestra. The Silesian Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Marcin Nałęcz-Niesiołowski will also perform works by Ludwig van Beethoven on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of his birth.
Janusz Wawrowski, who – courtesy of Roman Ziemian – plays the Antonio Stradivari violin built in 1685, will perform the solo part in Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61. The work with an extremely melodious violin part requires sensitivity and virtuosity from the soloist, especially in the final rondeau. The concert finale will feature Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92, dedicated to Count Moritz von Fries. The work was called by Richard Wagner 'the apotheosis of dance'.
