The least important are not forbidden to dream of great things, and even modestly to aim at them, according to the measure of their abilities.

At this season-closing concert, Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra appear on stage with the young Polish violinist Agata Szymczewska, about whom The Times wrote: “She plays with a poise, authority and musical intelligence beyond her years, sounding at times like a fiery young Ida Haendel.” The comparison to the grand dame of violinists is not unwarranted because both she and her compatriot have won the highly prestigious Henryk Wieniawski International Violin Competition – albeit with a 70-year gap between – and in both cases the win opened the door to fame for the artists. Agata Szymczewska has taken to the stage of the New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., London’s Wigmore Hall, Paris’s Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw and Sala São Paulo in Brazil. For this Liszt Academy recital, there is a performance of a piece by the highly influential Polish contemporanean composer Mikolaj Górecki, before which we have Leó Weiner’s opus Pastorale, Fantasia and Fugue, and the string orchestral arrangement of Debussy’s quartet.
