There are no translations available.

Łącząc odwagę z pięknem oraz pełną rozmachu wizję z doskonałą techniką, krakowski zespół Capella Cracoviensis jednego dnia zaprezentuje komplet symfonii Ludwiga van Beethovena. To bezprecedensowe wydarzenie, zatytułowane BEETHOVEN extreme, odbędzie się 27 sierpnia 2016 roku w Sali Audytoryjnej Centrum Kongresowego ICE Kraków i potrwa od godz. 11.00 do 22.00.

Capellę Cracoviensis poprowadzi w dziewięciu symfoniach pięciu wybitnych dyrygentów: Paul Goodwin (I i II), Christophe Rousset (III i IV), Eivind Gullberg Jensen(V i VI), Evelino Pidò (VII i VIII) oraz szef CC Jan Tomasz Adamus (IX). Należy zaznaczyć, że dotychczas żadna współcześnie istniejąca orkiestra nie podjęła się podobnego wyzwania, angażującego w takim stopniu siły muzyków oraz uwagę publiczności.

Symfonie Beethovena to kamienie milowe na drodze rozwoju ludzkości – zrewolucjonizowały one bowiem spojrzenie na możliwości twórcze, harmonię, kolorystykę czy nasycenie emocjami. Każda z nich ukazuje spektrum uczuć, daje świadectwo kompozytorskiego kunsztu, tchnie artystyczną wolnością. Wszystkie zaś kolejno prowadzą odbiorcę ścieżką, która swój początek znajduje w klasycystycznych dziełach Haydna i Mozarta, biegnie przez nieznane ówcześnie meandry pomysłów, by dotrzeć w nieznane wcześniej romantyczne rejony, gęste i fascynujące, porywające i wciągające bez reszty.

Koncert jest realizowany w ramach Theatrum Musicum Kraków 2016.

59th Warsaw Autumn PDF Print E-mail

59th edition of the International Festival of Contemporary Music "Warsaw Autumn" will be held from September 16-24, 2016. This year, the audience’s eyes, ears and attention will be directed to the stage, understood both literally and symbolically.

Opera will be the main theme (or perhaps the sound space) of this year’s Warsaw Autumn. The para- and operatic events will include the Warsaw premiere of The Magic Mountain, an opera by Paweł Mykietyn staged in the Nowy Theatre; the children (and family) microopera Silent Fish by Jarosław Siwiński (within the Little Warsaw Autumn programme); and the multimedia opera Aaron S by Sławomir Wojciechowski. In the latter work, the tragic character of Aaron Swartz, American programmer, columnist, political activist and hactivist becomes a symbol of protest against capitalist attempts to limit universal access to knowledge and information. At the same time, the eponymous Aaron S is an example of nonconformism in terms of timbre, language, ideas, and even instrumentation. Those listeners sensitive to new media will enjoy Olga Neuwirth’s opera Lost Highway, composed to a libretto by controversial Nobel Prize winner Elfriede Jelinek. Besides the schizophrenic Fred/Pete, music and video image are also the work’s main protagonists. The operatic thread of the festival will culminate in two works by Salvatore Sciarrino: Infinito Nero and Luci mie traditrici, each staged twice (similarly to Mykietyn’s The Magic Mountain and Fabián Panisello’s chamber opera Le malentendu after Albert Camus).

The Festival events will take place in both highly popular and lesser-known concert venues throughout Warsaw: the Warsaw Philharmonic, Witold Lutosławski Polish Radio Concert Studio, University of Music, Basen Artystyczny, Królikarnia, Centre for Contemporary Art, Zachęta, Nowy Theatre, IMKA Theatre, and other venues. Many first performances will be presented by artists both well-established and debuting in Poland, including GrauSchumacher Piano Duo, Spółdzielnia Muzyczna, SCENATET, and Berlin’s lux: NM. Featured composers will include Mark Andre, Marcin Bortnowski, Ondřej Adámek, Brigitta Muntendorf, Zofia Dowgiałło, and others. The central character of the Festival is Salvatore Sciarrino, with not only two operas but also instrumental works, including this year’s final performance, Shadow of Sound.

8th "Music on the Heights" International Chamber Music Festival PDF Print E-mail

Muzyka na szczytach 2016 edition of the "Music on the Heights" International Chamber Music Festival will be held from September 3 to 10 in Zakopane.

The main theme of this year’s programme is related to the concept of time in the widest possible sense. For this reason, it combines the compositions from different era, works in which time itself affects the form, and also the works which address time in its metaphysical aspects. For the first time in the Festival’s history, early music will be presented alongside contemporary music, both in their original versions (as so-called Historically Informed Performances) as well as modern arrangements.

The concerts will be performed by Polish and foreign chamber musicians, including Israeli clarinetist Shirley Brill, pianist Jonathan Aner, soprano Olga Pasiecznik, and the Royal String Quartet. The Festival’s artistic director is Paweł Mykietyn.

International Early Music Festival in Jarosław PDF Print E-mail

Piśń naszych korzeni 24th edition of the "Song of Our Roots" International Early Music Festival will be held in Jarosław in August 21-28, 2016. The programme offers 7 concerts, seminars, workshops and other fringe events.

This year, a "myth" has been chosen as the Festival’s main theme. However, it does not refer to literary texts associated with ancient Greece or other historic cultures, but rather to the term defined from an anthropological point of view, a concept of an archetypical figure, an instrument of cognition, which transfers contents related to identity, forms a vehicle of collective memory, and conveys a conceptualization of fundamental aspects of human existence and its sense.

The programme of this year’s edition includes also a series of presentations and seminars that will underline celebrations of 60th birthday of Marcel Pérès – musicologist, composer, singer, expert in the field of liturgical chant tradition and an honorary citizen of Jarosław.

The Festival’s highlights:

- L’Orfeo by Claudio Monteverdi - masterpiece of European music, regarded as the first opera in the history;

- Descensus ad inferos - Rafał Augustyn, Cantores Minores Wratislavienses, Schola Gregoriana Silesiensis and Schola Cantorum Minorum Chosoviensis - apocryphal oratorio commissioned by the Festival and written by contemporary composer Rafał Augustyn;

- Missa Ex Tempore - Marcel Pérès and Camerata Silesia - composition that refers to early forms of sacred music, however uses contemporary compositional techniques;

- Voie des songes - Ensemble Organum - repertoire presenting Corsican polyphony, Mozarabic chant, Morrocan Samaa tradition, Beneventan chant, works of Ockeghem and Machaut as well as the ensemble leader’s own compositions;

- Sulla Lira - Le Miroir de Musique - a myth of Orfeo and his Lyre presented in different musical forms that have emerged throughout centuries, from ancient Greek hymns to late Renaissance works of Italian composers.

12th "Chopin and His Europe" Festival PDF Print E-mail

12. Festiwal 2016 edition of the "Chopin and His Europe" Festival will be held in August 15-31 in Warsaw.

The 12th edition is the next one in a series of confrontations between the music of Chopin and of the composers closest to his heart – Bach, Mozart, Haydn, Bellini, Jírovec. It also traces the various influences on Chopin’s music, as well as of Chopin’s music in the works of other composers. It features Chopin’s favorite musical genres – opera, art song, concerto, chamber music. Finally, it showcases a phenomenon popular in the 19th century, consisting of arrangements, paraphrases and variations on the themes of the best-known works from that era. It also undertakes daring – though risky, and thereby provocative as well – transformations of Chopin’s masterpieces into another type sound. All of this in masterful renditions on both contemporary and historical instruments. Various performance styles – especially of music by the festival’s patron – will be heard in the interpretations of laureates of the most recent Chopin Competition, both on Steinways and Yamahas, and on Erards, Pleyels and Broadwoods.

Artistic director: Stanisław Leszczyński

Organizer: Fryderyk Chopin Institute

The Festival is co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and the City of Warsaw, and co-organized by the Warsaw Philharmonic and Polish Radio Programme 2.

Tickets available on-line at www.tickets.nifc.pl and at the Fryderyk Chopin Museum box office.
