The 23rd concert in the "Generations" series, organised by the Polish Composers' Union, Polish Radio Channel 2 and ZAiKS Authors' Association, will be held on 3 October 2021 at 6 p.m. at the Witold Lutosławski Concert Studio of Polish Radio.
The Polish Radio Orchestra in Warsaw under the baton of Rafał Janiak and the soloists – flautist Łukasz Długosz and accordionist Iwo Jedynecki – will perform works by renowned Polish composers: Concertino for flute and chamber orchestra (1962) by Witold Szalonek, Concerto for accordion and chamber orchestra (1987) by Sławomir Kaczorowski, In the Shade of an Unshed Tear for orchestra (2016) by Agata Zubel, as well as A Winged Creature for chamber orchestra (1994) by the Czech composer Miroslav Pudlák.
In addition, the concert will premiere two parts of Ten Scenes from Tobaro (2020) – the latest work by the young talented composer Krzysztof Rau, a doctoral student of Agata Zubel-Moc and Marcin Rupociński at the Karol Lipiński Academy of Music in Wrocław. Ten Scenes from Tobaro is a piece inspired by the form of musical reportage created by Grażyna Pstrokońska-Nawratil and the fantastic world of Warhammer Fantasy. The action of the work takes place in the city of Tobaro (which is part of the Warhammer world), at the beginning of the so-called The End of Times (a fantastic apocalypse that brought the destruction of all beings on the planet) and depicts the last moments of the city's population just before its utter destruction.
The concert was co-financed by the "Music" programme carried out by the National Institute of Music and Dance. Admission is free! It is required to cover the nose and mouth and disinfect the hands before entering the Concert Studio.
