Musikfestspiele Saar 2015
The Musikfestspiele Saar Festival, which is held from February to July 2015, presents “Polish rarities”: the music by Polish classics such as Frederic Chopin, Karol Kurpiński, Stanisław Moniuszko, Karol Szymanowski and modern Polish composers: Krzysztof Penderecki and Henryk Mikołaj Górecki.
On 23 May "Halka" opera by Stanisław Moniuszko will be staged to the libretto in German. The work by Moniuszko will be performed by the Pfalztheaters Kaiserslautern soloists, choir and orchestra conducted by Rodrigo Tomilllo. The performance will be directed by Michael Sturm.
On 31 May the festival audience will hear The Symphony of Sorrowful Songs No. 3, Op. 36 by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, with the Collegium Vocale Blieskastel and Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz under the baton of Christian von Blohn.
Between 6 and 8 June, the Symphony Orchestra of Artur Malawski Philharmonic in Rzeszow with Wojciech Rajski as conductor and Daniel Bollinger as clarinet solo will present The Clarinet Concerto in B Flat Major by Karol Kurpiński. The concerto was composer in 1823 in Paris. The piece is very popular around the world and is appreciated by the artists playing the clarinet solo part.
Apart from the work by Kurpiński, the programme of the concerts encompasses the music by Tchaikovsky (6 June), and by Polish composers: the Piano Concerto Op. 21 No. 2 in F minor by Frederic Chopin, "Bajka" (Fairytale) by Stanisław Moniuszko, "Krzesany" and the Suite to "Pan Tadeusz" film by Wojciech Kilar (7 and 8 June).
‘Easy as it is to appreciate contemporary works after they have become classics – why wait so long? The ANAKLASIS label has asked this question for two years now, encouraging audiences to explore Polish contemporary music of the highest calibre.
The tandem of opera authors, Aleksander Nowak and Szczepan Twardoch, have already won the audience’s hearts and received numerous accolades, as well as releases on CDs and LPs. Drach. Dramma per musica inaugurated the OPERA series from ANAKLASIS. In the same series, we now present their second joint project, Siren. Melodrama aeterna, on a compact disc. It will be premiered on 5th November during the AUKSODRONE festival in Tychy.
PWM EDITION – the Polish music publisher (including the famous ’Complete Works of Frederic Chopin’ series) is searching for foreign contractors within the territory of the European Union as well as Great Britain and Switzerland, who would distribute PWM’s publications within those territories and provide them to clients from the b2b and b2c sector.
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.
The Polish Music Library is the youngest member of the top flight of Polish libraries, exceptional in terms of its collection and unrivalled for accessibility. It is maintained by PWM Edition, the biggest Polish publisher of sheet music and books about music, which thanks to its international prestige effectively promotes the output of Polish composers around the world. PWM sums up this project, which has been realised since 2017, with an attractive animation presenting the process through which its resources have been digitised.
Does music call for gender equality? It can surely defend itself. Nonetheless, the artistic advantages of excellent present-day women-composers and their eminent predecessors are worthy of being noticed and highlighted. Women have their separate and distinctive voice in Polish music. In recognition of the need to acknowledge that voice, on 29th January ANAKLASIS will release the CD POLISH HEROINES OF MUSIC, comprising orchestral works by Elżbieta Sikora, Hanna Kulenty, Grażyna Bacewicz, and Agata Zubel.
A panorama of compositional output combining Polish and Yiddish inter-war hits with sorrowful, despairing tangos from the Ghetto. The disc Bajgelman. Get to Tango represents a twenty-first-century take on the output of the outstanding musician Dawid Bajgelman, from Łódź. These arrangements and reworkings of selected works by one of the greatest composers of Jewish theatre music were produced by the outstanding musician and composer Jarosław Bester. The album comes out on 11 December.
