As part of the traditional Polish evening at the Ohrid Summer Festival, a concert will be held tonight at the church “Saint Sophia” at 21,00h, of the Penderecki Piano Trio.
Conrad Scholarsky will perform on piano, violinist Jaroslav Nadzhicki and cellist Karol Marjanovski will perform works by Josef Haydn, Sergei Rachmaninov and Claude Debussy.
The piano trio “Penderecki” was created with great enthusiasm by three of the best and most important Polish musicians. For many years they have been inseparable with the legendary composer Krzysztof Penderecki and his enormous creative opus. Each of the members of this trio – the talented pianist Konrad Scolarski, the virtuoso violin Nadzicki as well as the sensational cellist Karol Marjanovski have an independent career in their native country and abroad. They are laureates of numerous international competitions, and have concert performances in Europe, North and South America and Asia. As soloists and chamber musicians (the two tunes until recently were the core of the Quartet “Mekore”), all the members of the “Penderetki” trio performed in well-known concert halls such as Auditorium in Madrid, “Wigmore Hall”, “Kadogan Hall” and “Mehnukhin Hall” in London, “Musikverain” in Vienna, “Bozar” in Brussels, the Frick Collection in New York, the unique Polak Hall in Montreal, the grand hall of the Warsaw Philharmonic, the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, the concert hall “Aram Khachaturian” in Yerevan, Ateneum “in Bucharest.
Although they constantly perform or record, each of the musicians strives to have an independent career, so each of them works with exceptional musicians such as Alfred Brandle, Gunter Pichler, Gerhard Schulz, Valentin Erben, Haime Muller, Pavel Gililov and Quartet Artemis . As soloists, they perform with renowned conductors including: Krzysztof Penderecki, Mikhail Jurovsky, Joe Anne Falleta, Lukash Borovich, Valery Gyergiev, Maxim Vengerov, Christian Jarvi, Giancarlo Guerrero, Sergey Smbatyan, Massimiliano Caldy and Paul Goodwin. They perform with top world orchestras such as the London Philharmonic, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of London, the MDR Symphony Orchestra and the Simon Bolivar Orchestra from Venezuela.
Winners are numerous awards at competitions, but their recorded publications receive numerous awards from the professional music public. Thus, winners of the “Supersonic” award, awarded by the German music magazine “Piccico”, were awarded with even 5 “Golden Ranges” by the French magazine “Diapazon”, and several times nominated for the Polish prize “Frederick”.
Education these three artists acquire at the High School of Music in Cologne, the Boston Conservatory, the Frederic Chopin Music University in Warsaw at the Padėvski Academy in Poznan, where they now deal with pedagogy. The Penderetki Trio has the great honor to bear the name of their mentor, Krzysztof Penderecki, one of the most important living Polish composers who with his works and artistic personality leaves a huge mark on the cultural life in Poland in the past, but also in this century.
The traditional Polish evening of “Ohrid Summer” is held every year with huge support of the Honorary Consulate of the Republic of Poland in Macedonia and Eurostandard Bank.
