Chamber: Polish Reflections
Glasgow, Scotland
Friday, 28 May 2021 - 7:30 PM
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 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.

This concert is part of the RSNO’s Polska Scotland series. Polska Scotland is supported by the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Edinburgh and the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the international cultural programme marking the centenary of Poland’s regained independence. Financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland as part of the multi-annual NIEPODLEGLA programme 2017-2022.
