Frivolous, piquant, romantic – the popular opera and operetta hits will be a treat to every palate. The charity gala on 19 September will be not only a night of sophisticated entertainment, but also an occasion to help Artur Stężała, a member of Spirituals Singers Band. The legendary Wrocław group had a road accident while travelling to a concert earlier this year. The revenue from tickets shall be donated to Artur Stężała to help cover the cost of his rehabilitation. The gala is held under the patronage of Mayor of Wrocław and Marshall of the Lower Silesian Province.
Christian Danowicz, a master of the violin, and Jurek Dybał, an ace of the double bass, will bedazzle us with their talent. The programme features the extremely difficult Cantabile from Paganini’s Sonata No. 2 in D major and Corelli’s exemplary Concerto grosso in F major Op. 6.6. The wonderful NFM Leopoldinum Chamber Orchestra shall be inspiring partners for both soloists.
‘I love playing for people who do not attend concerts of classical music very often and who claim they are “not knowledgeable about music”. Such people listen with their hearts,’ says Grzegorz Niemczuk. He puts his whole heart into his playing, so we hope his recital will move our audience.
‘Giving discs to my friends I always mention that with such gifts I give them part of myself,’ confides Liliana Stawarz, who will share her musical sensitivity with the Wrocław Baroque Orchestra and the Wrocław audience.
