A musical journey through Bohemia, excellent violin music from Finland and American symphonic music inspired by a manual by Arnold Schönberg. On 26 April, with the musicians of the NFM Wrocław Philharmonic, we will set off on an unforgettable journey.

The concert will open with the charming symphonic poem The Vltava, by one of the Czech national composers – Bedřich Smetana. This work is the second and most popular today among the six symphonic pieces of the Ma vlast (My Fatherland) cycle. The composer evokes the beauty of the Czech landscapes, following the current of the river flowing through the capital city of Prague. From the theme played by flutes and clarinets, designed to represent an inconspicuous rivulet grows a beautiful melody symbolising the Vltava and referring to folk music. It appears in the work many times, in various versions.

Full of lyricism and references to folklore is also one of the most popular works by Jean Sibelius. This piece delights with the thoughtful and extremely effective soloist part created by the excellent violinist who was the composer himself. The Violin Concerto in D Minor will be heard this time in the interpretation of Ning Feng, a Chinese virtuoso of the world format. Ning Feng became famous as the winner of prestigious virtuoso competitions, including the famous International N. Paganini Competition (2006).

The highlight of the programme will be Harmonielehre by John Adams – a work inspired by a unique study of harmony that is a manual by Arnold Schönberg. Schönberg, who became famous above all as the inventor of dodecaphony, in his publication does not reveal the laws governing works based on twelve-tone structures called series. His Learning Harmony is a publication that tracks the development of polychoral compositional techniques from the Middle Ages to Romanticism. In Harmonielehre, inspired by scholarly treatises on music, we also find direct references to the music of Sibelius and Gustav Mahler, both composers admired by Adams.
