World Premiere of the New Henryk Mikołaj Górecki's Work
2013-06-12On June 23 at the Franciscans’ Basilica in Kraków (Poland) the world premiere of 20 songs of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki called “Selected Sacred Songs” for a cappella mixed choir will be held. On that day, the songs also will be released in the written form prepared by the PWM Edition, as well as recorded on the CD, issued by the DUX label. A collection entitled "Selected Sacred Songs" will contain 20 songs set to the lyrics of Father Jan Siedlecki. "The composer created a unique harmony that delights with simplicity" - says Włodzimierz Siedlik, one of the initiators of the project. A few years before his death Górecki said that he wrote hymns, but he did not have time to refine it. In the interview, Górecki said, "I have a few unreleased and unperformed choral cycles. I have them only as manuscripts, drafts. I wanted to create a choral of Polish songs with my harmony. I've found specific harmony of choral songs [...] I am proud of the fact that I’ve discovered the melody of the Polish language."
The cycle of hymns composed by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki in 1986 was never completed by the composer. However, PWM has decided to release it, order to enrich the choral repertoire with this extremely valuable pieces. The issue of theis edition was possible thanks to the commitment and the great help of Anna and Mikołaj Górecki.
When cinema’s great visionary Francis Ford Coppola is calling – the director of The Godfather and Apocalypse Now – who would hang up on him? Wojciech Kilar took up the offer of cooperation, which resulted in his soundtrack (now of cult status) for the tale of the Transylvanian monster whose love was a bit too strong. Years later, this pathetic-lyrical cantata for mixed choir and symphony orchestra has been turned inside out by pianist Piotr Orzechowski and saxophonist Kuba Więcek. The album THEMES OF DRACULA, comprising deconstructed themes from Dracula, will go into distribution as of 19th August, as part of the catalogue of PWM Edition’s label ANAKLASIS.
“I’ve focused on chamber music in order to bring out as much colour in the violin itself and its changing sound as possible,” says virtuoso Adam Bałdych about his vision of Wieniawski’s music. Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung called Bałdych “technically the most accomplished violinist of our time”. Technical proficiency and thorough education (which includes an honours degree from Katowice’s Academy of Music and a scholarship to Berklee College of Music) do not stop Bałdych from taking an unorthodox approach to the time-honoured music of old masters.

GREAT ENCOUNTERS are performers’ meetings with excellent music, but also the encounters of great personalities from the past with composers who enjoy successes in our own times. Fryderyk Chopin, Henryk Wieniawski, Stanisław Moniuszko, Karol Szymanowski, and Ignacy Jan Paderewski did for Polish music what the three great Romantic bards and the giants of positivistic novel achieved in the field of literature. Their music not only impresses audiences with its beautiful form and emotional charge, but also provides modern-day artists with an inexhaustible source of inspiration. That music preserves for us the idiom of Polishness, to which, willy-nilly, by way of homage or rebellion, successful generations of artists and music lovers continue to return as to a point of reference. On GREAT ENCOUNTERS, this is done by the most outstanding representatives of Polish jazz and popular music.
Music is normally supposed to be listened to. Still, it also flows through our other senses. Is it, however, connected with them in a necessary and inseparable manner? After all, we can close our eyes, open up our imagination, and let unexpected experiences flow through our minds. On its brand-new 2CD release from the PORTRAITS series, the ANAKLASIS label invites you to play with your experiences and expectations. The album ACOUSMATIC MUSIC presents the philosophy of music as interpreted by one of the most intriguing contemporary composers – Marcin Stańczyk.
FOREFATHERS’ EVE by High Definition Quartet, a mesmerising fusion of jazz, ambient, and electronics, will also be available on a gramophone record as of 17th March. The album features a galaxy of experimental music stars and will be released in the REVISIONS series under the ANAKLASIS label, as the second vinyl in that label’s catalogue. Apart from the Quartet, this release brings together such world-famous giants of ambient as William Basinski, Krzysztof Knittel, Robert Rich, Christian Fennesz, and Igor Boxx of Skalpel Duo.
