Sinfonia Varsovia and Dawid Runtz will perform together during the Orchestra’s April concert tour (20-21 April 2018, Lithuania). Together with Lithuanian violinist Dalia Kuznecovaitė, the ensemble will appear in two concerts in Vilnius and Klaipėda, providing Poles and Lithuanians to celebrate jointly Poland’s 100th anniversary of the regaining of its independence.
Sinfonia Varsovia’s second concert tour abroad this year is part of the celebration of Poland’s 100th anniversary of regaining its independence. Concerts in Vilnius and Klaipėda will feature the Orchestra accompanying two young, exceptionally talented artists. The soloist in Henryk Wieniawski’s Violin Concerto No. 2 in D minor Op. 22 will be Lithuanian violinist Dalia Kuznecovaitė, who has already garnered numerous awards and accolades and is a laureate of many international violin competitions. As soloist, she has performed in, among others, Mexico, Canada, France and Germany. The conductor’s podium will be taken up by 25-year old Dawid Runtz. Barely two years after graduation, the conductor has already won a number of prestigious awards, both as conductor and as composer. As of December of last year Dawid Runtz is the first conductor of the Polish Royal Opera. During the Orchestra’s concerts in Lithuania, apart from conducting the Wieniawski Concerto, Runtz will also lead a performance of Grażyna Bacewicz’s Concerto for String Orchestra and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 in A major Op. 92.
The concert in Klaipėda will be performed as part of the 43rd Spring Music Festival – one of the most important classical music festivals in the region.
The concerts have been financed partly from the funds of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage.
