9th Festival of Premieres / Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra
The panpipes player, Matthijs Koene, together with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra – NOSPR and conducted by Frank Ollu, will perform ‘ Ad-Umbro ‘, a concerto for panpipes and symphony orchestra.
The event will take place under the 9th Festival of Premieres programmed on the 3rd of October 2021 at 18:00 am CET at the NOSPR Concert Hall, in Katowice. It owes its unique character primarily to the main idea of the program – only works that have never been performed or which so far have not had their Polish premiere can be presented during the festival concerts.
The piece has been written by composer Hanna Kulenty and it is the first-ever piece written for panpipes and orchestra by a polish composer. It can also be found in the catalogue of the music publishing house Polskie Wydawnictwo Muzyczne – PWM .
