Music Review by Joyce Tamer, Worcester Telegram & Gazette

Founded in 1945 on the heels of postwar Polish independence, The Polish Baltic Philharmonic is the largest music institution in northern Poland. The orchestra is visited not only by local music-lovers but by cosmopolitan Polish and international patrons alike. This is the place for those who enjoy art of the highest quality. The Philharmonic organizes symphonic concerts, recitals, and chamber music soirées performed by the most prominent Polish musicians as well as by many world-famous artists.

Internationally renowned for his musical knowledge, immense enthusiasm, and extraordinarily charismatic stage presence, Principal Guest Conductor Maestro Boguslaw Dawidow is credited with "...as precise and clear baton technique as we've ever seen..." (The Washington Times) and "...a great Slavic soul..." (Weiner Zeitung).

Maestro Dawidow served as the General and Music Director of the National Philharmonic of Poland from his appointment in 1999 until 2012, and was highly involved in forming the artistic shape and raising the international stature of the orchestra.

Born in Sopot, Poland, Maestro Dawidow studied under Bohdan Wodiczko in Warsaw and Krzysztof Missona in Krakow, later continuing his conducting studies in Vienna and Italy.  The most significant influence on his musical personality came from the legendary composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein.

As an eleven-year-old boy he made his debut with Krakow Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra.
