Macomb Symphony Orchestra presents Hold Dla Polski (A Tribute to Poland)

In Memory of Noreen Sinclair

The Macomb Symphony Orchestra loves to begin each season with a salute to a particular nation, its people and culture. Poland and Frederic Chopin will be honored in music and dance to kick off the 2012-13 season.

From the darkest days of foreign domination, Chopin emerged as a beacon of light with music both emotionally charged and technically brilliant. Bringing this great music to life, master pianist Kazimierz Brzozowski joins the MSO in two contrasting works by the “poet of the piano.” The Fantasy on Polish Airs represents the composer’s folk element, while the Andante Spianato and Grand Polonaise Brillante offers the virtuoso the opportunity to interpret a Polish dance form with spectacular display.

The Dunajec Dance Ensemble displays colorful costumes and intricate folk dances to the music of Chopin and to Poland’s greatest opera composer, Stanislaw Moniuszko, whose vivid dance segments in his operas are his hallmark.

The MSO rounds out the festivities with Symphony in E Minor (perhaps heard in America for the first time) by Mieczyslaw Karlowicz, a brilliant composer who passed away at the age of 33. An experience not to be missed!
