MAY 2016. It’s been ten years since Iwona Sobotka worked with Sir Simon Rattle for the first time, registering the songs of Karol Szymanowski for the EMI Classics. This month, the artists will meet again on stage during the Berliner Philharmoniker Asian tour, where the Polish artist will perform a part in the Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. The concerts will take place on May the 7th and 8th in the Taipei National Theater & Concert Hall (Taiwan) and, on May the 15th, in the Suntory Hall in Tokyo (Japan). The 7th of May’s concert will be broadcasted by the DIGITAL CONCERT HALL platform.
Shortly after, Iwona Sobotka will return to Katowice to perform with the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Polish National Philharmonics’ Choir on May 19th. The concert programme includes the Lithany to the Holy Mary of Karol Szymanowski – two fragments for soprano, female choir and orchestra with libretto by Jerzy Liebert and under the direction of Alexander Liebreich, the artistic director of the Polish NOSPR. The event will be transmitted by the Channel 2 of the Polish Radio.
