The World of Grażyna Bacewicz
Program 2: From War to Warsaw Autumn
Follow Bacewicz through the horrors of World War II and the repressive Polish communist regime that isolated Poland’s artists from the Western world. Experience wartime patriotic songs and beautiful folk-inspired pieces written during the early communist years. Also, discover the moving work of composer and violinist, Mélanie Clapiès, as she premieres her new string trio, commissioned by Bard Music West. The award-winning Tesla Quartet closes the program on a hopeful note with Bacewicz’s stirring fourth string quartet, featured in the first Warsaw Autumn festival.
