Hetherington / Opalińska concerts in Poland

In November me and violinist Feargus Hetherington gave concerts in two Polish cities: Rzeszów and Stalowa Wola.

First concert in Rzeszów’s Philharmonic Hall on 13th Nov as a part of “Fil-Kameralia” concerts series. With old but beautiful sounding Steinway C in very pretty chamber hall we presented music from our first duo CD “A Highland Ballad”, plus J.S.Bach—Sonata E, BWV 1016.

Thursday 14th Nov we performed in Music School in Stalowa Wola city. This School is very close to me because as a 9 years old girl I attended my very first piano competition. It was very nice to be there again after all those years. And again instrument for me… Steinway D with rich and such an gorgeous sound.
