Traveling far from the thriving cultural hotspot in Gdansk on the Baltic Sea, the Polish Wieniawski Philharmonic Orchestra will rouse spirits with an evening of innovative works that explore themes of resiliency and freedom. Formed in 1944 out of the ashes and rubble left at the end of World War II, the orchestra has grown to become the largest music institution in eastern Poland and often features the most prominent Polish musicians and many world-famous artists. Under the direction of esteemed Maestro Wojciech Rodek, the program features Polish composers Witold Lutoslawski’s Mala Suite and Frédéric Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2, as well as pieces by other composers including Schubert, Grieg, Brahms, and more. Piano soloist Pawel Wakarecy, first-prize winner of the 16th International Frédéric Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, will perform with the orchestra.
