Górecki – Three Pieces in Old Style
Chopin – Piano Concerto No. 2
Conductor – Michael Collins
Piano – Charles Owen
Contrasting aspects of the Polish spirit are revealed in this concert featuring internationally renowned pianist Charles Owen. Gorecki’s ‘Three Pieces in Old Style’ draws its inspiration from early music and is imbued with his stark and uncompromising musical vision. Chopin’s much-loved piano concerto No. 2, heard here in a new arrangement, is illuminated with romantic elegance and the most finely sculpted turns of phrase.
