Wrocław | Paschae improvisations in NFM: Piotr Rojek

NFM 10 4 24Media patronage: Polish Music Information Centre POLMIC

Organ recital by Piotr Rojek - head of the Department of Organ, Harpsichord and Early Music at the Karol Lipiński Academy of Music - will take place at the National Forum of Music on the 10th of April, 2024 at 7.30 p.m. His interpretation will include works by a little-known composer of Polish origin, Felix Borowski, as well as Johann Sebastian Bach and Jehan Alain, and the recital will end with the artist's own improvisations based on Easter songs.

Felix Borowski's Organ Sonata No. 1 was published in 1904. Borowski dedicated it to Alexander Guilmant - organist and composer representing the older generation of artists. Borowski is considered an English-American artist, although he had Polish roots. He lived in Chicago most of his life, where he served as the distinguished principal of the Chicago Musical College for almost three decades. In 1925, however, he abandoned this job to devote himself fully to composing.
