The Music School Complex in Poznań has decided to end the school year with a panache worthy of the largest cultural institutions. The premiere of a unique concert of the 20th and 21st century music performed by students will be held on 19 June 2021 at 6.30 p.m. on the Music School Complex's YouTube channel. The concert will be a kind of musical journey around the idea of Klangfarbenmelodie (sound-colour melody) and painting music.
The project is an original concept of the teachers of the Music School Complex in Poznań – Jakub Dera and Małgorzata Kwaśnik-Chmielewska. It was realized in cooperation with their students: Hugo Przybylski was responsible for the video and editing, and Zofia Jarząbek and Wojciech Śmierzchalski for the sound.
During the concert, music lovers will encounter a huge variety of music composed in the 20th and 21st centuries. The programme will include works by Olivier Messiaen (Hugo Przybylski – piano), Arnold Schönberg (Wojciech Śmierzchalski – piano), Witold Lutosławski (Estera Kędzierska – piano), Andrej Pushkarev (Jakub Jeżak – vibraphone), John O'Reilly (Aleksandra Patrzykont – xylophone, Arnold Dąbrowski – piano), Alice Gomez (Mateusz Haczyk – marimba), Barbara Kaszuba (Zosia Olesik – violin, Oliwia Nowak – cello, Eryk Legoń – accordion), Mikołaj Majkusiak (Eryk Legoń – accordion), Otto Ketting (Karol Łopiński – trumpet), Marek Pasieczny (Adam Struzik – guitar), Astor Piazzolla (Antoni Woźniak – saxophone), Bartosz Kowalski (Cecylia Szczech – harp), Krzysztof Penderecki (Feliks Kucharski – clarinet), Tadeusz Baird (Michał Pokrzywa – clarinet, Aleksander Kistowski – piano) and Folke Rabe (Music School Complex Choir).
Jakub Dera will also present the main ideas of music created in the 20th and 21st centuries and its relationship with painting in search of extramusical content encoded in works of art. Most of the concert material was recorded in the Gallery of Polish Painting and in the Spanish Hall of the National Museum.
