Sunny Sunday morning is a great opportunity to spend a family evening on Ołowianka Island. On May the 11st at noon, enjoy a family concert Dances of the World. Not only will you hear marches, waltz, tango and Gypsy, but also dances past. A wonderful musical experience and good entertainment. Symphonic Orchestra of the Polish Baltic Philharmonic under the baton Slawomir Chrzanowski. Enjoy May the 11st at 12:00!

The repertoire of the concert includes exceptional masterpieces with an interesting history, which the youngest generation of music lovers should know. Songs that (like Dance of the Hours from Ponchielli's opera La Gioconda) became an inspiration for filmmakers. For example Dance of the Hours was inspiration for Walt Disney. The next song, which went down in history of film music is Colonel Bogey March, which was used in the films: The Bridge on the Kwai River, The Day of the Jackal, and The Short Circuit.

In addition to the suondtracks inspirations you can also hear other tunes. Each of them was touching for many listeners. Moody Blue Tango for years have been interpreted by many performers. Among them you cannot skip Amanda Lear, Billy Vaughn and team Bill Black's Combo. It is also worth to mention that the song Blue Tango in 1952 reached to the top of the Billboard charts.

The repertoire of Dances of the World also includes a composition by Georges Bizet Arlezjanka. Created for an art of Alphonse Daudet Arlezjanka is the most famous example of farandola, expressive Provencal dance. Hungarian Dance No. 6 by Johannes Brahms is a remarkable proof of the Hungarian composer's fascination with folk music. Young Brahms's loved it because of his friend and collaborator, the famous Hungarian violinist Eduard Remenyi.

Slavonic Dance No. 8 in G minor, as the other Slavonic Dances, brought fame to Antonin Dvorak. Melodic, full of temperament and orchestral imaginativeness was brought to Dvorak success and famous even beyond the borders of his homeland. Written originally in piano version for four hands, only in a fully orchestral team shows all beautiful melodies and rhythms.

It's not all musical surprises, which we would like to present during the concert. So – visit Ołowianka!
