3rd Henryk Mikołaj Górecki Days in Katowice
The November music meetings, organised under the patronage of a Silesian composer, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, will be held for the third time in Katowice. This year, one of the concerts will present e.g. the works by Mikołaj Górecki: the latest orchestra hit "Concerto-Notturno" for violin and string orchestra and "Trio Concerto" for clarinet, horn, piano and string orchestra.
The concert will be held on 21 November 2015 at the Concert Hall of the Silesian Philharmonic in Katowice. The Silesian Chamber Orchestra will be conducted by Robert Kabara who will also play the violin part. The concert will also feature Trio Śląskie (the Silesian Trio) with: Roman Widaszek (clarinet), Tadeusz Tomaszewski (horn) and Joanna Domańska (piano). Next to two pieces by Mikołaj Górecki, the programme encompasses "Three Pieces in Old Style" for string orchestra by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki and "Concerto for Orchestra" by Grażyna Bacewicz.
Moreover, three other concerts will take place as part of the Henryk Mikołaj Górecki Days in Katowice. On 13 November, "Ein Deutsches Requiem" Op. 45 by Johannes Brahms (perf. by the Silesian Philharmonic Orchestra, Silesian Philharmonic Choir, Michael Zilm - conductor, Marta Boberska - soprano, Jarosław Bręk - baritone, Jarosław Wolanin - choir preparation) will be played, and on 27 November, the audience will be able to hear "The Piano Concerto" No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18 by Sergei Rachmaninoff and "Symphony No. 5" in D minor, Op. 47 by Dmitri Shostakovich (perf. by the Silesian Philharmonic Orchestra, Juozas Domarkas - conductor, Zbigniew Raubo - piano). During the only December concert of this series, which will be held on 6 December, i.e. on the anniversary of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki's birth, the works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Claude Debussy, Max Reger, George Gershwin and Hans Uwe Hielscher will be presented.
‘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.
