The Warsaw Philharmonic will open the new artistic season on 2 October 2020 at 7.30 p.m. with a programme composed of works by Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms, Franz Schubert, and Miłosz Magin. The Orchestra and Choir of the Warsaw Philharmonic will be conducted by their artistic director Andrzej Boreyko, and the outstanding Lucas Debargue will perform as a soloist.
Most of the pieces included in the inaugural programme are works composed by artists associated with Vienna. The second group consists of interesting and rarely performed orchestral transcriptions of piano and chamber works. We will hear Erwin Schulhoff's orchestral arrangement of Ludwig van Betthoven's Rondo and Capriccio "Die Wut über den verlorenen Groschen”, Op. 129. The programme will also include Franz Schubert's immortal Symphony in B minor and Johannes Brahms' – one of the the great admirers of Schubert's work – Nänie, op. 82 for SATB chorus and orchestra.
The career of the Polish pianist and composer Miłosz Magin seemed to be over after a dramatic accident in which his arm was seriously injured – after several years of intensive rehabilitation, during which he focused on composing, he returned to touring and recording. The inaugural concert of the new season will recall his Concerto No. 3 (1970) for piano, string orchestra and timpani – a work of intense, post-romantic expression, echoing the "golden age" of great concertos written by virtuosos who knew the secrets of their instruments perfectly.
