The Polish Music Center honors the 75th anniversary of Karol Szymanowski's death with a recital by pianist Mark Robson and guests.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of Karol Szymanowski’s death. One of the greatest modern Polish composers who, by building upon the achievements of Chopin and Moniuszko, ushered Polish music into the twentieth century, Szymanowski’s body of work and unique historical position make him the father of modern music in Poland.
The Paderewski Lecture-Recital will celebrate Szymanowski’s anniversary with a lecture exploring his repertoire for violin, and a recital spanning the range of his many stylistic changes as displayed by his music for voice and piano. Join lecturer Maestro Grzegorz Nowak, principal associate conductor of the Royal Philharmonic, as well as Los Angeles favorites Mark Robson, piano and Timur Bekbosunov, tenor, for this free event.
