Maestro Antoni Wit returns to the Opole Philharmonic on 25 October 2019 at 7 p.m. with a programme composed of French orchestral music as part of the "Zone of Stars" series.
The works by French composers, arranged in chronological order, represent diverse styles. Camille Saint-Saëns' Danse Macabre is a short and spectacular symphonic poem. Gabriel Fauré's Pelléas et Mélisande suite, which consists of the incidental music for a play by Mauric Maeterlinck, has a completely different character. The work written by the Nobel Prize winner in literature of 1911 tells a story of a beautiful girl immersed in incurable melancholy. The Fauré score is also beautiful but at the same time sad and foggy. Albert Roussel's Bacchus et Ariane is ballet music based on a story rooted in mythology, which makes it somewhat crazy, and sometimes even ... noisy.
The concert is directed at several groups of listeners: frankophiles, who are truly fascinated by the land of wine and cheese and want to get to know French music better; music lovers – maestro Antoni Wit is a legend of the Polish music scene and his concert is a must see; and theater and literature lovers who will have the opportunity to listen to music composed for dramatic use.
