Chamber Series: Polish Reflections

Sun 25 Apr 2021, 2.30PM
New Auditorium, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow

Britten Phantasy Quartet
Szymanowski Violin Sonata
Lutoslawski Epitaph for Oboe and Piano
Bacewicz String Quartet No4

Featuring Adrian Wilson, Lena Zeliszewska, Robin Wilson, Tom Dunn, Arthur Boutillier and Julia Strehle-Lynch.

In the 20th century, Polish music burst out of its homeland and set Europe on fire. The three Polish pieces in this concert are intimate in scale, but epic in emotion, whether they’re Szymanowski’s sensuous, soaring Violin Sonata, Lutoslawski’s haunting Epitaph or the brilliantly imaginative Fourth Quartet by Grazyna Bacewicz – possibly one of the 20th century’s wittiest composers. Britten’s bracing Phantasy Quartet offers a very British perspective on a concert that’s as surprising as it is entertaining.

The RSNO's Polska Scotland series is supported by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute
