This year marks the 45th anniversary of the death of this outstanding citizen of Legnica, the patron of the Legnica Cultural Center. Henryk Karliński devoted himself to popularizing and improving the choral movement. He initiated the Legnica Cantat choir tournament, which turned from a modest Lower Silesian Song Festival into a nationwide event, and is currently one of the most important competitions of this type in Poland. He organized concerts with the participation of eminent musicians, broadened and spread knowledge about the cultural past of Legnica and Lower Silesia. He was particularly interested in the rich collections of Rudolfina – the music library of the princes of Legnica and Brzeg.
During the upcoming concert in memory of Henryk Karliński, the Madrigal Choir will present Stanisław Moryto's Laudate Dominum, works by Matea Flecha el Viejo, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Ola Gjeil, Gioacchin Rossini, John Newton, Victor Paranjoti, as well as Maciej Maleńczuk's I love myself arranged by Marcin Wawruk.
The concert will be broadcast on Legnica Cultural Centre's YouTube channel.
