New Year’s Concert
On the 12th of January, at the Witold Lutosławski Polish Radio Concert Studio in Warsaw, the Polish Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra under the baton of Antoni Wit will give a concert featuring the talented American violinist Angela Wee. Pieces by Stanisław Moniuszko, Pablo de Sarasate and Manuel de Falla will be included in the programme.
It is good to step into the New Year accompanied by the sound of Music – the best kind, in excellent performances! All of this will be ensured by the concert of the Jerzy Semkow Polish Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Antoni Wit, one of the most respected Polish conductors in the world. Young violinist Angela Wee from the US saw triumphs in many competitions, including winning second place at the 12th Pablo de Sarasate International Violin Competition (Spain) in 2015. A particularly promising part of the concert are her interpretations of the brilliant, daringly virtuoso works of this master of romantic violinistics – his two fantasies on the motifs of Gounod’s Faust and Bizet’s Carmen, and the popular Zigeunerweisen (“Gypsy Airs”). The hot Iberian sun will also shine on the music from Manuel de Falla’s ballet The Three-Cornered Hat, based on a humorous story about an insidious mayor and a cunning miller’s wife, set in the scenery of an Andalusian town. One of Moniuszko’s lesser-known, but very interesting, works, Overture to Pariah, will be a domestic accent.
