About This Event

Celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Mieczysław Weinberg – the composer Shostakovich famously hailed as his musical successor – continue with an all-Polish programme from the first half of the 20th century that sets Weinberg’s own music alongside that of his great contemporary Grażyna Bacewicz.

Folk themes take on a new sophistication, cleverly manipulated and moulded in Bacewicz’s mature masterpiece the Piano Quintet No. 1.

Poland’s award-winning Silesian String Quartet are joined here by pianist Wojciech Świtała.

There will be no interval
