Although John Williams has achieved tremendous success in writing film music for productions such as Star Wars, The Jaws, Jurassic Park and Harry Potter, he has created a considerable amount of compositions intended for concerts. The catalogue of his works includes numerous chamber works, ten concertos for various instruments, as well as occasional compositions.

These include Just Down West Street ... on the left. Williams wrote this work in 2015 on the 75th anniversary of the Tanglewood Music Center. It is in this city, located in Massachusetts, that the legendary summer music courses have taken place since 1940. Williams’ brilliant and colourful work is an orchestral firework lasting less than 5 minutes, which opens with a hit fanfare of brass instruments.

Classics of American music include George Gershwin's Concerto in F major, written in 1925. In this work, as in other compositions, Gershwin successfully combined the world of music commonly known as classical with jazz, creating a completely new quality. The soloist will be Marcin Masecki, an artist known for his unconventional ideas and creative approach to the performed works.

The concert will be crowned with Sergei Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2, one of the artist's most famous and elaborate orchestral compositions. This work is in many respects typical of his style. On the one hand it is full of wide-flowing melodies and huge emotions, on the other it is built in an intricate way. The composer even included a musical symbol here. It is a quote from the medieval sequence of Dies irae, a symbol of death and mourning, which Rachmaninoff fondly included in many of his works.
