The 77th season of the Silesian Philharmonic will be inaugurated on 10 September 2021 at 7.00 p.m. The Silesian Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra under the direction of its Artistic Director, Yaroslav Shemet, will present music by Maurice Ravel, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Henryk Mikołaj Górecki. The soloist of the evening will be the internationally acclaimed pianist Andrew von Oeyen.
The concert will open with Two Tristan Postludes and Chorale, Op. 82 by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, which were discovered after his death in the home archive. The composer's son took care of arranging this composition for its premiere in 2016. It is an elegiac work for strings, percussion and piano with references to the music of Richard Wagner. The programme will also include Maurice Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major and Sergei Rachmaninoff's Symphonic Dances, the last of his major works.
