The performance "Up-Down – being Karlowicz" is the latest theatrical production by the Philharmonic in Szczecin, which tells about the life and work of its patron – Mieczysław Karłowicz. The Szczecin Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra will perform works by the composer, which will be heard for the first time in new electronic arrangements.
The emotions of the artist will be the main axis of the show, thanks to which the viewer will have the opportunity to penetrate the depths of the composer's mind and learn about his process of writing music. Emotions will also bring music lovers into the world of the mountains and photography – the great passions of Mieczysław Karłowicz – which had a great impact on the life and work of the patron of the Philharmonic in Szczecin.
