The latest performance of the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Sopot will offer you the opportunity to listen to a unique instrument – the French horn. It's an instrument that's probably older than music. The first natural horns were used for communication, deterrence, religious rites and magic. Although it can be presumed that instruments from the group of horns were used for purely artistic purposes, and not only practical or celebratory ones, the first musical compositions for horns only appear from the beginning of the 17th century.
Igor Szeligowski will play the French horn. Since 2004 the first French horn player has been part of the Great Theatre - National Opera Orchestra in Warsaw. He developed his skills under the direction of William VerMeulen (Houston Symphony Orchestra) J. Decker (LA Music University) J. Thatcher (Hollywood Studio Players) and Ch. Kovalosky
In 1999, he became the first French horn player of the Polish Festival Orchestra founded by Krystian Zimerman. In 2010–11 he was the first French horn player of the Teatro Municipal de Chile. He is a member of the classic brass quintet Varsovia Nova, and the Mazo Horn Quartet. He has also worked with the London Symphony Orchestra, Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.
During the Sopot performance, the Szeligowski will play the French Horn Concerto No. 2 in E flat major, K. 417 by Mozart. We will also hear Divertimento for string orchestra by Henryk Górecki. Work by Alexander Borodin and Anton Areński will also be played. The Polish Chamber Philharmonic will be conducted by Tomasz Bugaj.
The concert is staged with the support of the City of Sopot.
