Polish Folklore at Kraków Phil

The Krakow Philharmonic Orchestra and violinist Kamil Skicki conducted by Mateusz Czech will perform a concert Though the Mirror of Music – Kaleidoscope of Folklore which will be held on April 14 and 15, 2016 at the Krakow Philharmonic as a part of the “Musica – Ars Amanda” cycle.

“Musica – Ars Amanda” is a series of symphony concerts directed at college youth. Each season, there is a main theme connecting all evenings. Orchestral programs that present a given tendency in the history of music or a particular section of instruments are preceded by a lecture that renders easy the perception and situates a piece in a broader context.

The program of the April concerts features works by 19th- and 20th-century composers, who were inspired by folklore of various cultures (including Polish, Czech, Spanish, Italian, Romanian, English and Jewish culture): Harnasie, Op. 55 by Karol Szymanowski (excerpts); Slavonic Dances No. 1, Op. 46 and No. 2, Op. 72 by Antonin Dvořák; Final Dance from the ballet The Three-Cornered Hat by Manuel de Falla; Csardas by Vittorio Monti; Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 in A major, Op. 11 by George Enescu; Suite from the film Fiddler on the Roof by Jerry Bock (arr. John Williams); Fantasia on British Sea Songsby Henry Wood (excerpts).
