Wrocław | The Secret Signs


Contemporary music hides countless secrets. It intrigues with a multitude of experiments and crossing borders. Instead of being afraid of the unknown, it is worth taking a close look at the secret musical signs and following them. The ideal opportunity to do so will be a concert on 13 February 2020 at 7:00 p.m. at the National Forum of Music with well-known artists from the Polish electroacoustic scene.

Contemporary music in our country is doing really well. This is evidenced by the successes of such artists as Łuc and Duchnowski, who are actually very capable both in Poland and abroad. Cezary Duchnowski is a great composer, pianist, performer and co-founder of the Studio of Computer Composition at the Academy of Music in Wrocław. For several years he has been focusing on creating electroacoustic music in a special way. Rafał Łuc, in turn, is one of the most outstanding Polish accordionists. He cooperates with the best musicians on a daily basis and is ideally suited for live concerts. If we add to this duo Joanna Freszel, an award-winning soprano and winner of Polityka's Passport, we will get an unrivalled trio that will draw us into the new and unobvious musical world, which is sometimes difficult to define.

The artists will present Polish premieres of compositions by the best contemporary European artists working in the field of electronic and experimental music. Among them will be Milica Djordjević, a Serbian artist, author of an intriguing story about longing - I ti hoćeš da se volimo. The programme will also include the Hemliga tecken (Secret Signs) of the Norwegian singer and composer Mai Ratkje and Chistopher Trapani's Longue durée. We will also hear compositions by Polish musicians, for instance, Cezary Duchnowski and Agata Zubel. We cannot pass by these experimental pieces indifferently. The way the artists combine instruments, vocals and electronics certainly deserves attention and recognition.
