Pianist Piotr Anderszewski, recognized for the intensity and originality of his interpretations and known simply as the poet of sounds, joins Sinfonia Varsovia for a night of tribute to Polish music. A regular guest with the leading orchestras of the world, Anderszewski is the subject of two award-winning documentaries and recipient of numerous awards for his albums. His affinity with the music of his compatriot Szymanowski is captured in a highly-praised recording of the composer’s solo works and he has curated and performed in a number of festivals devoted to the composer’s music. Sinfonia Varsovia’s permanent presence in the most prestigious venues around the world, along with the excellent reviews from the most renowned critics, attest to its preminent position as one of the world’s leading ensembles of its size. Yehudi Menuhin’s all-time favourite orchestra, together with the champion of Szymanowski’s music will make this concert a most memorable one.

Sinfonia Varsovia is the guest resident orchestra of 42nd Istanbul Music Festival.

“The project is realized within the cultural program of celebrations of 600th anniversary of the Polish-Turkish diplomatic relations in 2014 and supported by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland”
