New album of Janusz Wawrowski, Sikora and Krauze jubilees, Weinberg 100
Together with artists we represent, we are working on the planning of upcoming seasons. Recent time has been exceptional for two violinists SONORA works with - Janusz Wawrowski and Linus Roth.
Together with the Stuttgarter Philharmoniker and Daniel Raiskin, Janusz Wawrowski has released his new Warner Classics album Brillante, including Concerto No.2 by Wieniawski and Bruch's Scottish fantasy. He also performed twice his beloved Karłowicz Violin Concerto at the National Philharmonic in Warsaw. Linus Roth received the prestigious ECHO Klassik Award at the ceremony at Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg and was appointed the artistic leader of the Leopold Mozart International Violin Competition in Augsburg.
In connection to his further plans, in the seasons '18-'19 and '19-'20, Janusz Wawrowski will perform violin concertos by Szymanowski, Karłowicz, Różycki, Panufnik, Sibelius and Wieniawski. Linus Roth's plans include performing concertos by Weinberg, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Shostakovich, Bruch and Mendelssohn. Moreover Roth will present chamber music programs: with Florian Uhlig [program] and solo with complete Sonatas and Partitas by J. S. Bach, as well as the one with pieces by Mieczysław Weinberg at the occasion of 100th anniversary of the composer [find out more]. Wawrowski performs solo [recital with the Fryderyk prize awarded album Sequenza] in duo with Grzegorz Skrobiński as well as with the chamber orchestra Warsaw String Players which he has founded.
We are also honoured to work with two great Polish composers who will celebrate their important anniversaries in the 2018-2019 season. Next year Elżbieta Sikora will celebrate her 75. and Zygmunt Krauze his 80. birthdays. Therefore, we propose you to join the celebrations of those jubilees in the best way it is possible - by including their music in your repertoires. We will be glad to send you more information about the pieces which the composers indicated themselfs as emblematic in their musical scope [contact us].
