New album of Janusz Wawrowski and Stuttgarter Philharmoniker under Daniel Raiskin has been released on 10th November 2017 by Warner Classics. Brillante features Polish and German music – Henryk Wieniawski’s Violin Concerto No. 2 and Max Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy. This symbolically reflects the dialogue between the Polish and German nations, their shared – frequently difficult – history.
By introducing Polish motifs in his Concerto, sometimes even alluding to Chopin, Wieniawski – I believe – wished to emphasise the cultural heritage and musical traditions of a country which at that time was absent from the maps of Europe. Bruch, on the other hand, looked for characteristic motifs which Scottish folk music could undoubtedly supply him with. – said Wawrowski.
The album has been prepared in cooperation with the Polish Institute Düsseldorf and with support from Polpharma sp. z o. o., to mark the centenary of Poland’s regaining independence.

Being violinist, I have the opportunity to share my talent with many people. My profession is my passion and I am very happy with it. I love to convey to my listeners this amazing power of music. If thanks to my artistic activity I can also help to seriously ill people, what can be more beautiful?
Ignacy Jan Paderewski is undoubtedly one of those people in Polish history, who can be an example to follow. It’s not just about the great virtuoso, but also about the great Pole – an activist who has been successful throughout the world, and has also led charitable activities for the benefit of poor American musicians.
I would like to follow the footsteps of this extraordinary artist, to pass on the positive energy that I receive from the audience at concerts, to those who need hope and help.
