Today's concert was I went on violin played enjoyed.
It began with Mozart's Prague symphony. It was lovely to refresh memory of my early milestone in classical listening. Harnoncourt's CD was my early symphonic love but I didn't listen to it in... years.
Then the tough stuff. Lutosławski's partita for violin and orchestra. No big deal. After that - encore. But how weird! Violinist (Roman Lasocki) showed his violin like he would want to say "stop applause, I'll play encore" but instead of it he talked like five minutes about Silesia being strong center of contemporary music and stuff. Then he introduced and played solo violin piece by no-idea-who but I'm waiting for review to appear so I will know what it was because it was nice.
And then Szymanowski's 1st violin concerto by young, 21 years old violinist. Aaaaaaaaaawesome. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawesome. No, really. My first time haring it live and she had such beautiful tone and dress and stuff. I think I will post this performance in Szymanowski's thread after they will upload it.
