The last concert of the 70th artistic season of the Opole Philharmonic on the 26th of June, 2022 at 6.00 p.m. will be inaugurated by the premiere of the Jubilee Overture, commissioned from Aleksander Kościów to celebrate the Philharmonic's jubilee.
That evening, the Opole Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Przemysław Neumann will present foremostly Polish music.
The writer and composer Aleksander Kościów comes from Opole. Since 2016 he has been the vice-rector for student affairs and teaching at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw. His novels are sometimes referred to as Polish magical realism.
We will hear two fantasies on opera themes. First by Ignacy Feliks Dobrzyński, who, a year after completing his only opera Monbar, returned to its motifs and weaved his original brilliant fantasy out of them. Music from Charles Gounod's Faust inspired Henryk Wieniawski, who created his Fantasy on themes from this opera.
The solo part in these pieces will be performed by Janusz Wawrowski.
