In September, the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra (NOSPR) conducted by Alexander Liebreich, along with pianist Szymon Nehring will perform in Copenhagen and Hamburg. The concerts will be a highlight of the celebrations of the centenary of Poland regaining its independence.
Szymon Nehring is a renowned Polish pianist. He was a finalist of the 17th edition of the Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw in 2015 and won first prize at the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition in Tel Aviv in 2017. This autumn, alongside the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, he will perform at the DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen on 9th September 2018 and at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg on 10th September 2018.
During both concerts, audiences will have the opportunity to get acquainted with compositions created by some of the greatest Polish composers of the past century. Many of them draw on Polish folklore. The Danish audience will listen to three compositions: the Piano Concerto in E minor No. 1 Op. 11 by Fryderyk Chopin, the Concerto for Orchestra by Witold Lutosławski, and Peer Gynt Suite No. 1 Op. 46. by Edward Grieg. In Hamburg, however, the audience will have the opportunity to listen to the Piano Concerto in A minor Op. 17 by Ignacy Jan Paderewski, The Dream of Jakob by Krzysztof Penderecki and Lullaby by Andrzej Panufnik, as well as Lutosławski's concerto.

The Danish Radio concert hall, in Copenhagen, DR Koncerthuset, was designed by Jean Nouvel. It is a modern building complex situated in the northern part of the city. The Japanese Nagata Acoustics is responsible for its extraordinary acoustics. Interestingly, the company also contributed to the construction of the NOSPR headquarters in Katowice. Thanks to their marvelous acoustics, both the DR Koncerthuset and the headquarters of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra are among the most prestigious concert halls in the world.
