Translated into English as Three-Four-Go!, this important and unusual festival will present 11 concerts between May 30 and June 28 at the Lutosławski Concert Studio in Warsaw, with pianist Maciej Grzybowski at the helm as the Artistic Director. Throughout the entire month of June, this year’s theme of “Context, Contrast, Confrontation” will be explored by hundreds of participating musicians—from soloists to chamber ensembles and orchestras, including Sinfonia Varsovia and AUKSO Chamber Orchestra of the City of Tychy. Music by Jacek Grudzień, Włodzimierz Kotoński, Witold Lutosławski, Eugeniusz Morawski, and Andrzej Panufnik, among others, will be interspersed with a concert presenting compositions by Glen Gould, a two-piano concert of works by Messiaen, Ligeti and Mozart with Maciej Grzybowski and Maciej Piszek, a solo recital with pianist Ramiro Sanjines (works by Mozart, Messiaen and Debussy), and others.
The Trzy-Czte-Ry Festival opened on May 30 with Sinfonia Varsovia led by Maestra Monika Wolińska, and soloists soprano Agata Zubel and violist Katarzyna Budnik-Gałązka, and its closing concert on June 28 will feature AUKSO with Marek Moś and violin soloist Dorota Anderszewska. Music by Richard Strauss, Witold Lutosławski, Arnold Schoenberg and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will be an appropriate finale for a festival that seeks to confront the audiences with innovative approaches to modern and traditional music and features panel discussions following each concert.
