[CANCELLED] Freszel / Böhmová / Silesian Quartet
Quartet, piano, winner of the Passport of Politics, Stanley Kubrick's favorite composer at the Eufonie Festival
Quartet, piano, winner of the Passport of Politics, Stanley Kubrick's favorite composer at the Eufonie Festival, who will also be hosted at the Royal Castle in Warsaw this year.
On November 24, an outstanding Polish soprano Joanna Freszel will sing in the ballroom. She will be accompanied by the Silesian Quartet and a respected Czech pianist, Veronika Böhmova.
During this extraordinary concert we will hear "Adante and Allegretto" by Gyorgy Ligeti, one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, known not only to music lovers. Fragments of his works were used by Stanley Kubrick in his iconic film "A Space Odyssey". The repertoire also includes two Polish accents referring to romanticism which is our theme this year. We will hear "Audition VI" by contemporary composer Andrzej Krzanowski, composed to a text by one of the Three Seers - Juliusz Słowacki, and "Piano Quintet in G minor" by Juliusz Zarębski, considered the most outstanding example of Polish chamber music created in the Romantic era.
