Daniel Barenboim performs in Poland’s Katowice

23.10.2021 09:00
World-famous pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim is the soloist at a concert marking the 80th birthday of American conductor Lawrence Foster, the Artistic Director of the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice.

In what is to be Barenboim’s first solo appearance with a Polish orchestra, taking place on Saturday evening, he is billed in Beethoven’s Concerto in C minor.

Born in Argentina in 1942, Barenboim recorded his first disc at the age of 12. Foster describes him as the greatest living musician.

The programme of the concert also includes The Awakening of Jacob by the Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki, who died last year, and George Enescu’s Romanian Rhapsodies. The latter work was a natural choice for Foster. Born on 23 October 1941 to a Romanian family, he is an indefatigable promoter of the output of Enescu, who is considered to be Romania’s greatest composer.

Foster was appointed Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice in 2019.

He previously worked with Orquestra Sinfonica de Barcelona, Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, the Houston Symphony, and Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne.
