Over to Katowice, Poland this week for a concert by the Polish Radio Symphony, conducted by Jacek Kaspszyk and featuring the award-winning Dynamo Agata Szymczewska playing the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto.

Recorded last year and relayed by Radio Nacional España earlier this year, here’s what’s on the player:

Concierto celebrado en la sala Grzegor Fitelberg, en Katowice, el 8 de febrero de 2013. Grabación de la PR, Polonia.

1.BERNSTEIN: Obertura Cándido.
2. MENDELSSOHN: Concierto para violín y orquesta en Mi menor, Op. 64. A. Szymczewska (vl.).
3. (encore) MASSENET: Meditación de Thaïs.
4. MAHLER: Sinfonía no 1 en Re mayor.
Orq. Sinf. Nacional de la Radio Polaca de Katowice. Dir.: J. Kaspszyk.

Coming in just a little over an hour, with Szymczewska turning in a very nice performance of the Mendelssohn, it’s the perfect antidote for a Road Rage Wednesday.

Enjoy.

    That’s an absolutely knockout performance of Mahler’s 1st, isn’t it? Perhaps the best I’ve heard. Many thanks!
