In its first American tour, this impressive orchestra makes its debut appearance at the Center for a sublime evening of symphonic music. Formed in 1947, it regularly appears at prominent cultural events in its homeland, while also touring extensively abroad. Under the leadership of Maestro Boguslaw Dawidow, this esteemed ensemble has hosted a growing number of world-class musicians, as well as winners of piano, violin, and conducting competitions; and was invited to perform in honor of Pope John Paul II’s 80th birthday. The program features Mozart’s delightful Overture to Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) and Beethoven’s powerful Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, Op. 55, “Eroica.” Award-winning pianist Evgeni Mikhailov joins the orchestra for Piano Concerto No. 1, Op. 11 by Chopin.
