London Philharmonic Orchestra: Mutter plays Penderecki:

Part of Classical Season

Anne-Sophie Mutter joins the London Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Lukasz Borowicz to perform Penderecki.

Anne-Sophie Mutter needs no introduction to LPO audiences – the orchestra is honoured to have had a long musical partnership with this incomparable artist. The prospect of hearing her luminous tone and effortless command in Penderecki’s impassioned Second Violin Concerto, which was written especially for her, is genuinely exciting, as is the opportunity to hear it conducted by Lukasz Borowicz, who has worked closely with the composer.

Two powerful wartime testimonies begin and end the programme: Panufnik’s Heroic Overture, written by a composer who witnessed the fall of Warsaw, and Prokofiev’s mighty 'symphony of the greatness of the human spirit', premiered in Moscow in 1945 to the sound of gunfire.

Organised in collaboration with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the Polska Music Programme.
