The star of “I Like Chopin” concert organised by the Poznań Philharmonic for participants of the congress will be phenomenal young pianist Jan Lisiecki. Just 21, Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki has won acclaim for his extraordinary interpretive maturity, distinctive sound, and poetic sensibility. The New York Times has called him “a pianist who makes every note count”. Lisiecki’s insightful interpretations, refined technique, and natural affinity for art give him a musical voice that belies his age. 

At 7 p.m. on Friday, 9 September, carefully selected compositions of Polish music shall sound at the beautiful neo-Renaissance auditorium of Adam Mickiewicz University, where Poznań Philharmonic holds its concerts. Poznań Philharmonic Orchestra will open the evening with the overture to the opera Zabobon, czyli Krakowiacy i górale (The Superstition, or Cracovians and Highlanders) by Karol Kurpiński, a composer associated with the region of Wielkopolska. The piece will be followed by Violin Concerto No. 2 in D minor Op. 22 by Henryk Wieniawski performed by Amelia Maszońska. The very young Polish violin player is preparing for October 2016, when the 15th edition of International Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition gets under way in Poznań. Originating in 1935, it is the oldest violin event in the world.
After the interval, it will be Fryderyk Chopin’s music which invariably delights successive generations. Concerto for Piano No. 1 in E minor Op. 11  shall be performed by the Canadian-born pianist with Polish roots Jan Lisiecki, who will undoubtedly win the audience’s hearts with this composition!
The concert will be conducted by Łukasz Borowicz. This outstanding Polish conductor of the young generation, the first guest conductor of Poznań Philharmonic Orchestra,  has directed numerous leading orchestras in Europe and the USA, and made almost seventy records for the most prestigious labels.
