Russian, Polish Virtuosos in Joint Concert
Russian classical musicians Yuri Bashmet, Alena Baeva and Boris Berezovsky will perform a special concert together with Polish cellist Andrzej Bauer at the Polski Theater in Warsaw Dec. 10.

Accompanied by the Sinfonia Varsovia orchestra conducted by Grzegorz Nowak, the musicians will perform pieces by the greatest Romantic composers, including Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso in A Minor by Camille Saint-SaŽns, Piano Concerto by Edvard Grieg, and several compositions by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Hector Berlioz. This will be a unique opportunity to hear so many acclaimed Russian and Polish musicians in one concert.

Many regard Yuri Bashmet as the world’s greatest viola player and the most charismatic musician to emerge in Russia. The previous Polish concert Bashmet gave with the Moscow Soloists Chamber Orchestra became one of the biggest music events of 2011.

Violinist Alena Baeva is one of the best recognized names among young classical musicians. In 2001, she triumphed at the 12th International Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition in PoznaŮ, taking home the main prize and nine special awards.

The third guest from Russia, pianist Boris Berezovsky, is a prizewinner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Meanwhile, Polish cellist Andrzej Bauer won first prize at the ARD International Music Competition in Munich and took home an award from the Prague Spring International Music Competition. His other accomplishments include awards from the European Parliament and the European Council.

Polish expatriate maestro Grzegorz Nowak is coming to Warsaw especially for the occasion to conduct the Sinfonia Varsovia orchestra.
