Karol Szymanowski: Viulukonsertto nro 1
Witold Lutosławski: Konsertto orkesterille
In European music history, Polish modernism deserves a chapter unto itself. The unprecedented tones tore holes in the Iron Curtain that music escaped through, spreading the genre across the continent and ultimately to the broader world. In this evening’s concert Kirill Karabits from Ukraine conducts Witold Lutosławski’s breakthrough concerto for orchestra and Karol Szymanowski’s violin concerto – the first “modern” violin concerto.
