38th Karol Szymanowski Days in Zakopane
As every year, in late July and early August, Zakopane, which used to be a special place in Karol Szymanowski's life, turns into the centre of his music. This year, during the 9 festival days, we will be able to hear the music of the festival patron, as well as the first performance of Trio concerto by Mikołaj Górecki.
38th Karol Szymanowski Days will be held between 25 July and 2 August. The audience will listen to performances of ensembles from Poland and other countries: Czech Republic, Canada, Ukraine and Italy.
The opening concert of 26 July includes Harnasie for two pianos with Joanna Domańska and Andrzej Tatarski. The Mater Dei Violin Quartet by Ewa Fabiańska-Jelińska will be performed for the first time on 27 July, at the concert aimed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Szymanowski's Myths.
During the piano recital on 31 July, Mikołaj Warszyński will play Haydn, Liszt, Chopin and Szymanowski. On Saturday, 1 August, Szymanowski's chamber music will be presented by Sedlaček String Quartet (Czech Republic), winner of the first prize in the 1st International Karol Szymanowski String Quartet Competition (2014). At the final concert on 2 August, Sinfonietta Cracovia with Massimiliano Caldi as conductor and Joanna Domańska (piano), Roman Widaszek (clarinet) and Tadeusz Tomaszewski (horn) will perform Mikołaj Górecki's Trio concerto for clarinet, horn, piano and string orchestra for the first time. The programme also includes Serenade for String Orchestra by Mieczysław Karłowicz, Five Folk Melodies and Overture for Strings by Witold Lutosławski, Orawa by Wojciech Kilar and Three Pieces in Old Style by Henryk 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.
We would like to inform you that we have prepared new retail prices for National Edition of Chopin works. New prices will be valid from 20/06/2022. Our decision is caused generally by increased production costs.
‘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.
