Katowice | Silesian Quartet and Krzysztof Książek

LasonThe Silesian Quartet together with the excellent pianist Krzysztof Książek will perform on 20 February 2021 at 6.00 p.m. in the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra Concert Hall. The programme will include works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Aleksander Lasoń.

Allegedly, those who are good with numbers lack imagination, and vice versa. The programme of the concert will reconcile both groups of listeners. The subtitle of Lasoń’s String Quartet No. 5 is „siedem i pół kwartetu” [seven and a half quartet], as it was composed to celebrate the 750th anniversary of granting borough rights to Bytom – a quartet for every century, each movement dedicated to „the composer’s artistic friends connected with the city”. Mozart’s Piano Concerto K. 415 is formally made up of three movements, yet each of them, especially the final one, is divided into smaller elements – bound together logically and masterfully, though against the convention of the day. Such music allows one to fantasise and not get lost with one’s numbers at the same time.
