Concert with the Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra
Pawel Przytocki is a very welcome guest at the Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra. His long-standing cooperation with this orchestra has led to numerous intriguing performances broadcasted by Polish Radio. In the programme they focused rather on obscure composers (mainly Polish) and their pieces which faded into oblivion after their death in order to restore their glamour. The great examples of that activity were the concerts in 2010 and 2012 when Przytocki conducted (among other compositions) such pieces as Symphony in C minor by Franciszek Mirecki or Piano Concerto no.2 in C minor by Nikolai Medtner.
A real continuation of that activity is the concert on 25th May with the Polish Radio Orchestra. The programme embraces only pieces by Polish composers from the 19th century. The performance will be opened by Polonaise triomphale in A major composed by Juliusz Zarębski in 1882 (his manuscript has just been discovered last year). The next piece is the Piano Concerto in C major composed in 1810 by Franciszek Lessel. The soloist will be an italian pianist Leonora Armellini who gained the "Janina Nawrocka Award" in the international F. Chopin Competition in Warsaw (2010) for her "remarkable musicality and beauty of sound". The last composition presented during the concert is Symphony in D major by Józef Wieniawski (younger brother of renowned Henryk Wieniawski) which nowadays has almost fallen into obscurity. The whole concert will be broadcasted by Polish Radio.
