CLARK — On Sunday, May 15, at 3 p.m., the Polish Cultural Foundation will present the premier of Walter Legawiec’s Serenade for string orchestra, thanks to the initiative of Stephen Wolosonovich and artist friends of the honoree.
Vice President for the Cultural Affairs Josephine Cukier will be hosting the program. Members, friends and general public are invited without charge to the concert at the Polish Cultural Foundation’s Skulski Gallery, which is located at 177 Broadway, Clark.
Legawiec is the Polish Cultural Foundation’s “Artist in Residence” and has been an honorary member for the last 25 years.
Legawiec has written three sonatas for violin and piano, a solo violin sonata which Stephen Wolosonovitch performed at Carnegie Recital Hall in 1982, with Paul Kueter at the piano. The Cracow Opera Foundation of Poland recently recorded selected works of Legawiec’s compositions.
The program on Sunday, May 15 will also include eight Rustic Dances, five early pieces for violin and piano, and Mazurkas for piano, all composed by Legawiec. Kueter will be at the piano for Legawiec’s 1st Sonata for violin and piano and his “Lonely Shepherd Girl.” Kueter’s “Andante” will also be played.
This concert will be a celebration of Legawiec’s talents as a composer and the long relationship between Legawiec, Kueter and Wolosonovitch that goes back 40 years. Also performing will be the well-known pianist, Carol Ann Mochernuk.
Due to limited seating, reservations are requested. For information call the Polish Cultural Foundation office at 1-732-382-7197.
