We always think that classical music is too sophisticated for ordinary listeners. This type of music seems to be unattainable. Because of that we usually bend down our heads and go clubbing but Polish Baltic Philharmonic is going to prove you again that even CLASSICAL PERFECTIONS might be proper for everyone who likes good music. Visit the Ołowianka Island on March the 14th at 7:00 p.m. (Friday)!

The Symphony Orchestra of the Polish Baltic Philharmonic will perform concert under the baton of maestro Erns van Tiel. Peter Pławner, the violinist who has won many awards, will be accompanying them as a soloist. We promise that concert wil be unique!

First of all we will hear Short ride in a Fast Machine by John Adams. It will take the audience to the world of speed and its strength does not allow to get up from chair. Asked about the title of the masterpiece Adams said: “You know how it is when someone asks you whether you drove a great sports car, and you regret that you have not experienced it yet”. So what can you say about Short ride…? Sharpness, speed and joy of life.

The next piece of music will be the composition by Mendelssohn. During the CLASSICAL PERFECTIONS concert we will hear Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64. Nowadays it is as popular as Mendelssohn’s’ March (from The Midsummer Night's Dream overture) and compositions of Beethoven, Brahms and Tchaikovsky. The final part of The Violin concerto is full of the atmosphere of the enchanted forests, commonly described in Romantic poetry which inspired Romantic composers. No wonder that it was considered as a masterpiece very quickly.
The icing on the cake will be Symphony No. XI in A major, Op. 41 by Shostakovich. This long composition (approximately 40 minutes) will take you to the mysterious world where flutes and rings sound together and mix with the voices of the kettledrums. There is no doubt that this fusion of melodies will give you many great musical experiences.
