Works by Baird, Kisielewski, Cynk, Mozart and Reinecke will inaugurate the 68th artistic season of Tadeusz Baird Zielona Góra Philharmonic on the 23rd of September, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. Szymon Mechliński and Joel van Lerber will perform together with the Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra conducted by Rafał Kłoczko.
After the Little Overture by Stefan Kisielewski, Four Love Sonnets to the words of W. Shakespeare will be played - one of the most famous works by the patron of the Zielona Góra Philharmonic. During this year's inauguration, Szymon Mechliński will interpret Baird's masterpiece. He will also premiere Love Sonnets by Magdalena Cynk, commissioned especially for this occasion. In her work, Cynk refers to Baird's compositions and thus pays tribute to him: she uses Shakespearean texts translated by Maciej Słomczyński and uses them in an identical composition to Baird's.
The second part of the concert will begin with the overture to the opera The Marriage of Figaro. The first concert of the new season will be complemented by the Concerto in E minor for harp and orchestra, Op. 182 by C. Reinecke. The solo part will be performed by Joel von Lerber, who will be the artist-in-residence of the Zielona Góra Philharmonic in the 2023/24 season.
