Recognized soloists Maria Berezovska and Izabela Matuła will perform together with the Philharmonic Choir and Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Yaroslav Shemet. The inauguration programme will include a work by the patron of the Silesian Philharmonic, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, and it will be accompanied by one of the most famous and most admired symphonies by Gustav Mahler, his ‘Resurrection’.
The concert will begin with the performance of fragments of Miserere for mixed choir, Op. 44 by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki. This composition was created in response to the events of the 19th of March, 1981 in Bydgoszcz, preceding the martial law announced a few months later.
