Critically acclaimed Polish composer, cellist and pianist Piotr Rubik comes to the Skirball Center for a lively classical pop concert featuring music from Santo Subito (released October 2009). Rubik has performed with world-class orchestras such as the Jeunesses Musicales and Sinofonia Varsovia. In the studio, he has collaborated on over 30 albums and produced soundtracks for theater, film, television and radio.
Santo Subito is not a historical biography, but rather an emotional journey that chronicles the life and work of Karol Wojtyla - or Pope John Paul II - from his childhood until the moment his ministry was fulfilled. Most of the performance will be in Polish with an English summary translation in the printed program.
