The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields chamber orchestra from London will play at Warsaw's National Philharmonic Jan. 18. This legendary chamber orchestra was formed in 1959 in London. Its first performance was in its namesake church near Trafalgar Square.

Under the direction of Sir Neville Marriner, the ensemble toured extensively, propagating its love of Baroque music to audiences worldwide and setting new standards in the interpretation of Haydn and Bach. During its 50 years in existence, it has recorded nearly 500 records, which is a world record.

The orchestra will perform in Warsaw under the direction of one of its full-time conductors, Julia Fischer. The talented German will also take on the mantle of solo violin, performing two Bach concertos and conducting two British pieces.

The full program is: Benjamin Britten, Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge Op. 10; Johann Sebastian Bach, Violin Concerto in A minor BWV 1041 and Violin Concerto in E minor BWV 1042; William Walton, Sonata for Strings.

Jan. 18, 6 p.m., National Philharmonic, 10 Sienkiewicza St., tickets zl.50-90, tel. 22 55 17 127, 22 55 17 149; 22 55 17 188, bilety@filharmonia.pl, www.bilecik.info
