Missa Gratiatoria by Leszek Możdżer will be presented at the Henryk Mikołaj Górecki Silesian Philharmonic for the second time at the request of the audience delighted with the first performance in October 2019. The concert will take place on 26 January 2020 at 5 p.m.
This modern combination of jazz and religious music shows Możdżer's smooth movement between genres, which he also constantly proves as a pianist. The concert will start with a piece for a cappella choir written by the Silesian Philharmonic Patron, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki. Euntes ibant et flebant is based on a text taken from the Book of Psalms, illustrated by a melody with an almost extraterrestrial dimension.
The concert will commemorate the victims of the 1945 Upper Silesian Tragedy, which 75th anniversary falls in January this year. Excellent performers: Michał Schoppa, Paweł Tomaszewski, Bartek Pieszka, Krzysztof Nowakowski, Tomasz Kałwak, Jarosław Wolanin and his Silesian Philharmonic Choir will give a unique concert of sacred music.
