Introduction

Experience a concert evening buzzing with musical kinetic energy! A feverish symphonic poem, a virtuosic rhapsody, and Witold Lutosławski’s breakthrough piece, an orchestral concerto that draws on Polish folk music. Our guest soloist Alexander Melnikov is known as a musician who looks deep beneath the surface of the pieces he performs.

Russian-born composer, pianist and conductor Lera Auerbach is a modern Renaissance artist with deep expressive reserves that are enough not only for music but also for poetry and the visual arts.
