Witold Lutosławski: Concerto pour orchestre
Ever since winning the competition in Brussels commemorating the Beethoven Year of 1970, the Portuguese pianist Maria João Pires has been intimately associated with the oeuvre of this composer with the Rhenish roots and Viennese home. In Luxembourg, she now performs the Piano Concerto No. 3, the first which Beethoven conceived in a more «symphonic» vein. In the first part of the concert, the audience will be treated to the Concerto for Orchestra written in the early 1950s by Witold Lutosławski, who was inspired for this early work by the traditional music of rural Poland. Lutosławski’s pioneering role for 20th-century Polish music will be the subject of a lecture by Claire Paolacci, delivered in French at the Salle de Musique de Chambre at 7:15 pm.
Ce concert sera enregistré par radio 100,7 et retransmis le 5 avril 2023.
