Homage à Witold Szalonek

The concert was dedicated to the late Polish composer Witold Szalonek, who died four years ago.

The Polish pianist Elżbieta Sternlicht presented a programme of works by W. Szalonek and György Ligeti, alongside world premieres of pieces by Romuald Twardowski, Sidney Corbett and Rainer Rubbert. The works of G. Ligeti and R. Rubbert, in particular, allowed the pianist to demonstrate her virtuosity and artistry to the full. The concert was an extraordinary success and was met with warm applause by the audience.
