The Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic Orchestra in Białystok presented a fascinating concert on June 9, spotlighting major works by Aleksander Tansman. On this occasion the orchestra was led by Maestro Jason Lai, who conducts the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory Orchestra and also serves as Assistant Conductor of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. The concert opened with George Gershwin’s Cuban Overture and the rest of the program included Tansman’s Symphony No. 2 in A minor and his Symphonie-concertante. Soloists in the former included violinist Rafał Dudzik and violist Jakub Grabe-Zaremba, and in the latter cellist Jan Kalinowski and pianist Marek Szlezer, known worldwide as the Cracow Duo.
