Warsaw | Bogusław Schaeffer in memoriam


The Polish Radio Choir invites you to a concert dedicated to the outstanding Polish artist "Bogusław Schaeffer in memoriam", which will take place on 18 October 2019 at 7 p.m. at the Witold Lutosławski Polish Radio Concert Studio in Warsaw (59 Modzelewskiego St.).

The concert on the occasion of the 90th birthday of the composer who passed away only three month ago, on 1 July 2019, will premiere Sławomir Kupczak's Glosolalia commissioned by the Polish Radio Choir. The work is an attempt to unconsciously pronounce sounds resembling a language, especially in a state of deep, internal mystical experience. It is a mumbling in a non-existent language, a study of noise. The composer used characteristic chords derived from Georgian religious songs, as well as the song Szen Char Wenachi from the turn of the 12th and 13th centuries.

The highlight of the "Bogusław Schaeffer in memoriam" concert will be the performance of Schaeffer's Missa Elletronica for mixed choir and tape. The Polish Radio Choir under the direction of Maria Piotrowska-Bogalecka will be accompanied by Ewa Guziołek-Tubelewicz, responsible for sound projection.
