Karol Lipiński
Trio in A major, Op. 12
Trio in G minor, Op. 8

Karol Lipiński built a distinguished career in the 19th century. In Vienna, he met Luis Spohr and, in Piacenza, in 1818 he performed together with Nicolo Paganini whom he competed against to win the title of the best violinist. In Paris, it was Chopin who helped him organize a concert. From 1839, he stayed in Dresden where he took up a position of a concertmaster at the Court Orchestra. That was where he played with Ferenc Liszt, cooperated with Richard Wagner and made friends with Robert Schumann. Karol Lipiński was one of the first before Fryderyk Chopin, who made the polish music culture worldwide known.

Voytek Proniewicz & Sinfonia Viva Orchestra


 Vivaldi & Piazzola – The Four Seasons

The “Pearl” of baroque versus the Tango of Buenos Aires. Two worlds, two personalities. Two distant continents, two epochs. Two different music styles – one INSPIRATION. An intriguing mixture of Antonio Vivaldi’s baroque masterpiece and the 20th century passionate and  full of energy tangos by Astor Piazzola.

Voytek Proniewicz has been performing alongside the Sinfonia Viva Orchestra for many years. As conducted by Tomasz Radziwonowicz, he has played on numerous occasions in the Warsaw National Philharmonic Hall and Witold Lutosławski Concert Studio of the Polish Radio. In May 2009, in Saint Anne’s church in Warsaw they gave a premiere performance of Krzesimir Dębski’s “Dos Lid Far Jidisze Fidl” for violin and string orchestra. The same year, the Polish journal “Gazeta Wyborcza” published a series of CDs with the music of great movie composers. Voytek Proniewicz participated as a soloist and concertmaster in the recording of Waldemar Kazanecki’s music. The CD earned a Gold album award. 


Polish Recital


An exclusive repertoire of Polish composers

Voytek Proniewicz brings special attention to the output of Polish composers. Not only to the most famous one, such as Fryderyk Chopin, Henryk Wieniawski, Ignacy Jan Paderewski, Karol Szymanowski, Witold Lutosławski, Krzysztof Penderecki but also to those who may not have marked their presence in the international awareness and yet whose compositions are equal to the works of the greatest European composers: Karol Lipiński, Ignacy Feliks Dobrzyński, Karol Mikuli, Józef Nowakowski, Zygmunt Noskowski, Roman Maciejewski.
