On Sunday, 3rd of May at 6 p.m., we invite you for another musical surprise prepared for the music lovers by the musicians of Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra and the artists who cooperate with it. This time on our website we will give you an opportunity to listen to the violinist Marcin Suszycki, concertmaster of Philharmonic Orchestra, and pianist Michał Francuz, who has been cooperating with our ensemble for many years. On the 250th birthday anniversary of the maestro from Bonn the musicians will perform his Romance in F major.

Romance in F Major No. 2, Op. 50 is one of the two works of this type written by Ludwig van Beethoven. It was originally arranged for violin with the accompaniment of an orchestra composed of a flute, two oboes, two bassoons, two French horns and strings. This roughly 10-minute-long piece is known for numerous arrangements for different instruments, but the most popular version is the one for violin and piano. There is no need to convince anybody of the beauty of that miniature. Although Romance in F Major for Violin and Piano was composed by Beethoven approximately three years before the famous “Spring” Sonata for Violin and Piano (also in F Major) – isn’t Romance like a flower in a May bouquet?
