Sibling Prodigies In Concert

violinCLARK—On Sunday, March 1, the Polish Cultural Foundation will present Ania and Piotr Filochowski, an accomplished brother and sister pair of violin prodigies.

The Filochowskis are currently studying at the Juilliard School of Music in New York City under the guidance of Maestro Itzhak Perlman who personally invited them both to participate in his program.  Having made their orchestral debuts at ages 10 and 11 respectively, both have played in the National Philharmonic of Warsaw, the Carnegie Hall series “From the Top” and numerous European and American competitions. Ania was named “Personality of the Year” by Polish National Radio in 2005 and recently Piotr claimed first prize at the William Choral Performing Arts Competition.

On stage, the two create an intriguing vision as Piotr stands tall and upright, exuding confidence as he elegantly moves his fingers and his bow with a steely precision. Ania, meanwhile, gently sways to and fro as the music effortlessly carries her fingers over the strings of her instrument. Their performance creates a brilliant contrast and has much of the playfulness that one would expect from siblings on stage at the same time.

The concert begins at 3:30 p.m. and will feature selections from Mozart, Bach, Brahms and Sarasate among others. Ivan Solomon will provide accompaniment for the concert. Tickets are priced very reasonably at $15 for adults, $5 for students and children under 12 are free of charge.  Contact the office at 732-382-7197 to reserve seats as soon as possible. The Polish Cultural Foundation is located at 177 Broadway, Clark.
