Cracow | Virtuosos with Sinfonietta: Theodosia Ntokou and Sulamita Ślubowska

SC 28.2.23Media patronage: Polish Music Information Centre POLMIC

In 2023, the series ‘Stars with Sinfonietta’ returns with the power of two expressive artists who will perform solo parts on the 28th of February 28 at 19.30 at the Cracow Philharmonic in a concert combining romantic virtuosity with what is the most beautiful in Polish music of the 20th century.

The programme will include two works by Polish composers: Karol Szymanowski's Etude arranged for string orchestra by Agnieszka Duczmal, and Symphony for string orchestra by Grażyna Bacewicz, which draws on musical traditions in an intriguing way. The programme will be complemented by the virtuosic, early Romantic Double Concerto in D minor, written by fourteen-year-old Felix Mendelssohn-Bartoldy.

The solo parts of the concert will be performed by the Greek pianist Theodosia Ntokou, who, despite her young age, can already boast of enthusiastically received performances and recordings (including in a duet with Martha Argerich). She will be accompanied by the violinist Sulamita Ślubowska (winner of, among others, the 1st prize at the 13th International 'Young Paganini' Violin Competition) and Sinfonietta Cracovia conducted by Katarzyna Tomala-Jedynak, artistic director of the orchestra.
