Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra to Perform at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall
The 115-year old Warsaw Philharmonic, Poland's national orchestra, under the baton of Artistic Director Jacek Kaspszyk, will perform at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City on Monday, October 24, 2016 as part of its upcoming 14-city United States coast-to-coast tour.
This performance will be a unique opportunity for New York audiences to enjoy the U.S. concerto debut of the most recent International Chopin Piano Competition First Prize Winner, Seong-Jin Cho. His international career has catapulted him to the highest levels since his triumph at the esteemed Chopin competition, and this performance will be a preview for the 22 year-old Seoul, South Korea native's much anticipated Carnegie Hall recital debut February, 2017.
As the orchestra of the International Chopin Piano Competition, the Warsaw Philharmonic's unique musical relationship with Mr. Cho was sealed during his celebrated victorious performance of the famous Chopin, Piano Concerto No 1. The performance was captured by Deutsche Grammophon and a rush-released recording of live highlights drawn from Mr. Cho's competition performances instantly garnered the endorsement of the world's top music critics ("Unequivocally brilliant" by the Telegraph, London) as well as achieving triple platinum sales within a week of its release in South Korea and reaching No. 1 in the nation's pop album chart on the strength of pre-orders alone.
The Warsaw Philharmonic will also present the New York debut of Mieczyslaw Weinberg's Symphony No. 4. As one of the 20th Century's most gifted, and later ignored, composers, Weinberg's unique musical voice is now being rediscovered, in large part, as a result of the Warsaw Philharmonic's ongoing recording project featuring his most important work. The concert will also include Brahms' Tragic Overture.
Maestro Jacek Kaspszyk has led the Warsaw Philharmonic as Artistic Director and conductor since 2013, continuing the long tradition of providing musical leadership from within Poland's vast community of virtuosic musicians.
Support for the Warsaw Philharmonic's New York concert is generously provided by the Polish Cultural Institute New York, the Korean Cultural Center New York and Asiana Airlines with Media Sponsorship by Polskie Radio WRKL 910 AM and WLIM 1580 AM. The New York concert is presented in partnership with the Polish Cultural Institute New York. The upcoming tour and New York concert is being produced by Columbia Artists Management LLC.
