Sinfonia Varsovia, one of Poland's best-known orchestras, will stage a concert at Warsaw's National Philharmonic March 6.

The event will be held as part of the Philharmonic's Thursday Music Meetings. The orchestra, conducted by Krzysztof Urbański with solo violinist Agata Szymczewska, is to perform pieces by Beethoven, Grieg and Mendelssohn.

The history of Sinfonia Varsovia is closely linked to legendary conductor Yehudi Menuhin, who came to Poland at the invitation of the Polish Chamber Orchestra in 1984. To meet his requirements, and the demands of the planned repertoire, the orchestra expanded its membership. At that point, it changed its name to Sinfonia Varsovia, and Menuhin became the orchestra's first guest conductor.

Sinfonia Varsovia has accompanied many of the world's top soloists, such as Piotr Anderszewski, Maurice André, Rafał Blechacz, Kyung-Wha Chung, James Galway, Kiri Te Kanawa, Yehudi Menuhin, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Mstislav Rostropovich, and Frank Peter Zimmermann.

Franciszek Wybrańczyk, the founder of the orchestra and long-time conductor, died in 2006. Janusz Marynowski is the managing director of Sinfonia Varsovia, and their patron is composer Krzysztof Penderecki.

March 6, National Philharmonic, 10 Sienkiewicza St., at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets: zl.15, zl.20
