Franek the raftsman and Jakub the hairdresser vie for the hand of beautiful Zosia. Though this one-act opera by Stanisław Moniuszko, composed in Paris to a libretto by Stanisław Bogusławski, is often viewed as a hasty attempt to repeat the success of Halka, unlike that latter work The Raftsman ends happily. It does steal the hearts of the audience, especially when performed by such legends! In this 1962 studio recording we hear Halina Słonicka (soloist of Warsaw Opera, the later Teatr Wielki), Bernard Ładysz (one of history’s greatest operatic voices in Poland), the excellent tenor Bogdan Paprocki, one of our best baritones Andrzej Hiolski, and the bass Antoni Majak, accompanied by the Warsaw Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra under Zdzisław Górzyński – a conductor who, like no other, could bring out the best in Moniuszko’s operas. This recording is a genuine jewel from the Polskie Nagrania archive.
