The BBC Symphony Orchestra marks the centenary of Poland regaining independence with a concert celebrating the nation’s rich musical legacy.
Conductor Michał Nesterowicz is joined by Polish-Canadian pianist Janina Fialkowska, who will bring her warmth and generosity of sound to Paderewski’s passionate and romantic Piano Concerto.
At the heart of a concert that also includes Elgar’s characterful symphonic prelude Polonia  (dedicated to composer and statesman Paderewski) and Lutosławski’s eloquent First Symphony, is a newly commissioned work by Paweł Szymański inspired by Woodrow Wilson’s Fourteen Points – the President’s famous principles for post-war peace and the foundation of the modern state of Poland.
