Sinfonietta Cracovia hosts a music journey through Slavic lands, with the orchestra joint by a special guest: the Croatian conductor Mladen Tarbuk. The internationally acclaimed artist performs regularly at the North Rhine German Opera, as well as being an active composer, pedagogue, producer and director of the Summer Festival in Dubrovnik.

Since the concert, held as part of the cycle Stars with Sinfonietta, forms a part of the Croatian Independence Day celebrations and the 25th anniversary of the diplomatic relationships between Poland and Croatia, the programme features works from the Adriatic. We will hear Samba da camera, one of the best known works by Ivo Josipović, acclaimed musician and former president of Croatia, as well as Sebastian im Traum, a composition by the guest of honour recalling the poem by the expressionist Georg Trakl. Poland is represented by Maciej Bałenkowski, young composer-in-residence with the Cracovian orchestra and his Sinfonietta: Time Is Ticking. The spirit of Slavic melancholy is recalled with Serenade by Josef Suk, Czech composer regarded as the most talented pupil of Antonín Dvořák. (Barbara Skowrońska)
