The inaugural concert of the Warsaw Winds + Festival on 29 November 2019 at 7 p.m. at the Witold Lutosławski Polish Radio Concert Studio in Warsaw will premiere works by Paweł Pudło and Mikołaj Majkusiak.
The title of Paweł Pudło's Whistleblower refers to the name of people who inform the public, among others about irregularities in the functioning of states, special services or corporations. Whistleblowers and their deeds often face extreme, turbulent emotions on the part of society, despite the fact that the information they disclose is extremely important to avoid armed conflicts or maintain a balance between mass surveillance and freedom. The whistleblower spreads ideas, but will society accept them? This will be revealed during the premiere of Paweł Pudło's work.
The concert will also include the premiere of Mikołaj Majkusiak's Concerto in Air in a version for wind quintet and piano. The works will be presented by the Lutosławski Quartet, double bass player Tomasz Januchta and the Gruppo di Tempera ensemble composed of: Agata Igras (flute), Sebastian Aleksandrowicz (oboe), Adrian Janda (clarinet), Artur Kasperek (bassoon), Tomasz Bińkowski (French horn) and Agnieszka Kopacka-Aleksandrowicz (piano). In their performance we will also listen to La Danse de la sorcière from the ballet Le Jardin du Paradis by Alexander Tansman, Wind Quintet by Michał Spisak and Dixtuor pour quintette à vent et quintette à cordes by Jeans Françaix.
