About the Show/Event
Information for Proms at... - Cadogan Hall: Silesian Quartet at Cadogan Hall, Inner London (Concert). Celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Mieczyslaw Weinberg - the composer Shostakovich famously hailed as his musical successor - continue with an all-Polish programme from the first half of the 20thcentury that sets Weinberg's own music alongside that of his great contemporary Grazyna Bacewicz. Folk themes take on a new sophistication, cleverly manipulated and moulded in Bacewicz's mature masterpiece the Piano Quintet No. 1. Poland's award-winning Silesian String Quartet are joined here by pianist Wojciech Switala.
