Names and identities

Tchaikovsky – the name says it all. So a work by the great Peter must not be missing from Andrey Boreyko’s programme. The conductor, always good for surprising programme ideas off the beaten track, chooses not one of the famous symphonies, but the Suite for Orchestra No. 3, triumphantly celebrated at the time (1855), and places a violin concerto by Czajkowski next to it. The Polish namesake (1935-1982) received this name as a six-year-old fleeing from the National Socialists and kept it for life. The manuscript of the Violin Concerto, written in 1964, was found in a basket among pieces of laundry after Czajkowski’s death and premiered in Warsaw in 2021 by Ilya Gringolts and Andrey Boreyko – as a CD recording, without an audience due to the pandemic.
Paul Kletzki is also found in various spellings of his name. Born Paweł Klecki in Łódź in 1900, the Jewish conductor and composer is one of those countless who were uprooted and pushed around by the political upheavals of the 20th century. His music absolutely deserves to be heard!
