Gdańsk | "Visions 4 Gdańsk" – O’Bows Quartet to Its City. Album Premiere

O'bowsThe O'Bows Quartet was founded in Gdańsk – hence the ensemble's idea to dedicate their first album to this city. The concert premiere of the album Visions 4 Gdańsk will take place on 4 November 2021 at 7.00 p.m. at the Concert Hall of the Baltic Philharmonic in Gdańsk as part of the "Gdańsk for Polish Music" festival.

The album includes four pieces commissioned from young Gdańsk composers, who were left with complete freedom in the choice of style and form of the piece. The only requirement was to be inspired by Gdańsk. Therefore, each composer remained faithful to their own compositional style, and at the same time expressed an artistic vision related to Gdańsk in an individual manner. The commissioned works were recorded for the first time.

The programme of the concert will include Beniamin Baczewski's Niezmierzone wody [Vast Waters], referring to the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Poland's Wedding to the Sea, Maciej Zakrzewski's Nigdy więcej wojny [No more war], which the composer dedicated to Gdańsk as a symbol, an allegory of dreams about peace, freedom and independence, Anotni Wojnar's Ulica Mariacka [Mariacka Street], inspired by the famous street in Gdańsk, and Kamil Cieślik's Stellaeburgum [Constellation], which title refers to the name of the Jan Heweliusz astronomical observatory built in the attic of one of Gdańsk tenement houses.

The Honorary Patron of the album is the President of the City of Gdańsk. The Patron is the Baltic Philharmonic in Gdańsk.

Katowice | Celebrating Maestro Lawrence Foster's Birthday!

NOSPRThe Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra invites you on 23 October 2021 at 7.30 p.m. to a concert-celebration! The Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the NOSPR, Lawrence Foster, celebrates his 80th birthday that day. The star of his birthday concert will be the legendary pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim, who will perform for the first time as a soloist with a Polish orchestra.

“Daniel Barenboim is, in my opinion, the greatest living musician. Whether he conducts, or plays the piano, or teaches, or finally gives speeches, he is the greatest and there is no dispute about it,” says Maestro Foster about the soloist of his birthday concert. We will hear Barenboim in the beloved, dramatic-virtuoso Concerto in C minor by Ludwig van Beethoven.

The remaining items of the programme were also selected based on the closest musical friendships of the Artistic Director of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra. The concert will be opened by The Awakening of Jacob by Krzysztof Penderecki, who greatly contributed to Lawrence Foster becoming the head of the Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra. It was Maestro Penderecki who first called Foster to offer him the position of Artistic Director of the NOSPR. The American conductor was chosen by the orchestra itself. It was no coincidence that he selected The Awakening of Jacob – the work was premiered in 1974 in Monte Carlo under the baton of Stanisław Skrowaczewski by the Orchester National de l'Opéra de Monte-Carlo. Foster was associated with this orchestra for 14 years.

At the end, we will hear compositions reminiscent of one of the homelands of the main character of the evening –Romanian Rhapsodies by George Enescu. Foster, the son of Romanian immigrants raised in sunny Los Angeles, visited his parents' country for the first time as a 26-year-old. He fell in love with this country and is closely associated with it to this day, also as a tireless promoter of the work of the greatest Romanian composer, George Enescu.

The Honorary Patron of the concert is the Embassy of Romania in the Republic of Poland.

Wrocław | The Garden of Love

pThe LutosAir Quintet and saxophonist Bartłomiej Duś will perform on 24 October 2021 at 6.00 p.m. at the National Forum of Music. The programme will include works for saxophone, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and French horn. The artists will also premiere Miłosz Wośko's Aeration Channels for wind quintet and electronics.

The concert will begin with Henri Tomasi's Printemps (Spring). Next, we will hear the graceful and unpretentious Suite of another French artist – Charles-Édouard Lefebvre, representing the Romantic Era. This will be followed by The Garden of Love – a piece by the Dutch composer Jacob ter Veldhuis (b. 1951) for soprano saxophone and tape.

Miłosz Wośko, whose new composition for wind quintet and electronics will be premiered during the concert, is a representative of the so-called third trend in jazz music: he combines elements of jazz and classical music in his works. The latest piece by this multi-talented musician "is full of ambiguity, history and emotions", as described by the composer himself.

The concert will end with Darius Milhaud's suite Scaramouche, Op. 165.

The project is part of the commemoration of the centennial of regaining independence and rebuilding Polish statehood.

Wrocław | Master of Modernity

NFMThe National Forum of Music presents the works by contemporary artists and those constituting the canon of the concert repertoire. A synthesis of these two trends will be the concert programme on 22 October 2021 at 7.00 p.m. during which we will listen to compositions from the Romantic era and a new work for cello and orchestra by a prominent Polish composer of today – Paweł Szymański.

Marzena Diakun and the NFM Choir will perform five pieces for a cappella choir by Anton Bruckner: Os justi WAB 30, Ave Maria WAB 6, Locus iste WAB 23, Christus factus est WAB 11, and Virga jesse floruit WAB 52. These are raw, ascetic, yet delicate pieces, and deeply spiritual too.

Next, the cellist Magdalena Bojanowicz-Koziak will perform Simple Music for cello and orchestra by Paweł Szymański, who is known as a composer of spiritual independence, often critical of present-day developments in music and able to integrate it in an interesting way with elements taken from the past, especially from the Baroque era. Szymański has described his artistic credo as follows: ‘The contemporary artist, including the composer, is in the chains of two extremes. On the one hand, he is in danger of talking gibberish if he completely rejects tradition, and on the other, he can become banal if he stares too much at it. This is the paradox of practicing art today. What is the way out of this situation? Since you cannot completely free yourself from the banality, you must play a game with this banality, treat it as a material that allows you to maintain certain elements of the convention, but at the same time, using quotation marks, metaphors, paradoxes, you have to distance yourself from it.’

The concert will be crowned with a performance of Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 4 in C minor.

The commissioning of work by Paweł Szymański was subsidised from the Culture Promotion Fund of the Minister of Culture, National Heritage and Sport as part of the ‘Composing Commissions’ programme realised by the National Institute of Music and Dance.

Wrocław | "Composing Commissions": Fides et ratio

NFMThe National Forum of Music in Wrocław invites you on 21 October 2021 at 7.00 p.m. to a concert celebrating Pope John Paul II Day, entitled Fides et ratio – ‘faith and reason’. It includes works created especially for this occasion by three Wrocław composers, featuring accordion, harpsichord, boys’ choir and electronics.

Sero te amavi (Too late have I loved you) is the composition by Marcin Bortnowski, based on the quote from Confessions by Saint Augustine. The composer graduated from the Wrocław Academy of Music, where he studied composition under Grażyna Pstrokońska-Nawratil. Apart from composing, he also teaches contemporary composition techniques and computer music.

Stanisław Krupowicz developed his musical interest simultaneously with his passion for science. Before he received a diploma from the Academy of Music in Warsaw, he graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics at the University of Warsaw. He received his doctorate at Stanford University in California. His music has been performed in numerous countries around Europe, Asia and both Americas. He was one of the initiators of the Musica Electronica Nova Festival and the first artistic director of this festival. His composition Te Deum (Thee, o God, we praise) uses an early Christian hymn dating from the 4th century.

The last piece in the concert programme is Eulogētos (meaning ‘blessed’ in Greek), a composition by Marcin Rupociński. The composer studied at the Wrocław Academy of Music, first under Grażyna Pstrokońska-Nawratil and later under Stanisław Krupowicz. In addition to music, he is also fascinated with photography – he studied it in the Pho-Bos studio and at the European Academy of Photography. He creates art at the intersection of three media, programming multimedia installations and creating electroacoustic music alongside an interest in computer-assisted composing.

The commissionings of works by Marcin Bortnowski, Stanisław Krupowicz and Marcin Rupociński as part of the project Fides et ratio were subsidised from the Culture Promotion Fund of the Minister of Culture, National Heritage and Sport as part of the ‘Composing Commissions’ programme realised by the National Institute of Music and Dance.

World Premiere of Album „Juliusz Łuciuk. Vesperae in Assumptione Beatae Mariae Virginis”

DUXThe fifth album in the "Anthology of Polish works a cappella" series recorded by Janusz Siadlak and the Collegium Cantorum Choir of the Częstochowa Philharmonic is a tribute to Juliusz Łuciuk on the first anniversary of his death. The world phonographic premiere of his work Vesperae in Assumptione Beatae Mariae Virginis will be held on 15 October 2021. The album was released by DUX Recording Producers in cooperation with the Institute for Art Development.

The first album in the "Anthology of Polish works a cappella" series was devoted to Juliusz Łuciuk – three years later Janusz Siadlak and his ensemble returned to the work of the composer from Częstochowa and Kraków, paying him tribute on the first anniversary of his death. This time the Collegium Cantorum Choir of the Częstochowa Philharmonic and maestro Janusz Siadlak reached for a work unique on an international scale – Vesperae in Assumptione Beatae Mariae Virginis. The composition was written in 1987-89 in the version for male choir, and from 2005 comes the version for mixed choir (with choral antiphons in the original version). Vesperae in Assumptione Beatae Mariae Virginis are a great showcase of Juliusz Łuciuk's talent. The piece represents what the composer loved the most in his work – the tradition of faith. The use of choral quotes, the calm emanating from each movement, as well as the mystical aura of the Middle Ages create a complete and coherent work.

The concert premiere of the album will take place on 21 October 2021 at 7.00 p.m. at the Częstochowa Philharmonic.

The album is co-financed by the Ministry of Culture, National Heritage and Sport as part of the "Musical Trace" programme implemented by the National Institute of Music and Dance.The partners are the ZAiKS Authors' Association, the Regional Cultural Centre in Częstochowa and the Częstochowa Philharmonic.

All the albums from "Anthology" series were released under the patronage of the Polish Music Information Centre POLMIC.

Warsaw | Polish Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra: Premiere of Hanna Kulenty's "Alinea"

POSIThe fundamental mission of the Jerzy Semkow Polish Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra is to promote Polish historical and contemporary music. The ensemble finds great joy and satisfaction in participating in first performances of musical pieces. The concert on 30 October 2021 at 7.00 p.m. at the Witold Lutosławski Polish Radio Concert Studio in Warsaw will be one of those exciting occasions: it will feature the first performance of a piece by Hanna Kulenty, created under the “Composition Commissions” programme implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance.

Hanna Kulenty is one of the most interesting personalities of Polish contemporary music scene. The composer’s extensive and varied output includes compositions for solo instruments, emphasizing their potential to “manifest reality and unreality”, with soloists usually accompanied by a large orchestra. Alinea refers to the concert’s concept, but in this case the genre is merely conventional and fluid, serving the music- and experience-related layer. The piece consists of one part, built on a dialogue between melodic lines of a clarinet and a piano, which are accompanied by a large orchestra. The main pseudotonal theme, clearly heard in the solo parts, is a dialogue between two worlds. The soloist of this extremely attractive premiere will be Roman Widaszek, a charismatic and versatile clarinet virtuoso with an impressive number of concerts and recordings in his portfolio.

Apart from the awaited premiere of the new piece, we will also hear two other attractive compositions: Jean Sibelius' concert suite Pelléas et Mélisande (1894) and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Italian-styled Symphony No. 32 in G Major. The concert will be conducted by George Tchitchinadze – one of the most popular Georgian musicians, who has won great acclaim of audiences and critics due to his impressive musical skills, taste, imagination and, at the same time, the warmth and sensitivity in his interaction with listeners and musicians.

First part of the concert (Mozart, Kulenty) will be broadcast on YouTube channel and www.sinfoniaiuventus.pl

Free entrance tickets will be available until 22 October. The number of seats is limited.
