Founded in 1945 on the heels of postwar Polish independence, the Polish Baltic Philharmonic [Filharmonia Bałtycka] is the largest music institution in northern Poland. Finishing their extensive tour of the US in the West, the Baltic Philharmonic will be in California for most of March.
On March 9, the musicians from Gdańsk are scheduled to perform at the Cohan Performing Arts Centre at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, where the featured soloist, Marcin Koziak, will perform Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Koziak will also join them for an all-Beethoven program at the Marin Center in San Rafael, CA on March 12 and an “Afternoon of Tchaikovsky” at the Harris Center in Folsom, CA on March 13. Pianist Adam Golka will serve as soloist for an all-Beethoven program at the Segerstrom Hall in Costa Mesa, CA on March 15, and then their dates in California will end with Koziak again performing Chopin at the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert, CA on March 16.
