Works by Wojciech Ziemowit Zych as well as the latest Polish accordion music will be featured in the next episodes of the "Nocturne" and "New Poland" programmes hosted by Ewa Szczecińska on Dwójka – Polish Radio Channel 2 on 27 and 28 April 2020.
The "Nocture" programme on 27 April at 11:00 p.m. will present new accordion music composed specially for Polish virtuoso accordionists: Maciej Frąckiewicz and Rafał Łuc. It will feature works by Tomasz Opałka, Cezary Duchnowski, as well as Andrzej Krzanowski, the doyen of Polish accordion music, who died in 1989. The guest of the programme will be Rafał Łuc, who will talk about his work and cooperation with composers. In addition, we will listen to concert music of Norwegian composer Rolf Wallin.
The "New Poland" programme aims at popularizing Polish music by presenting recordings and facts about selected composition accompanied by statements of composers. It is an attempt to select masterpieces of Polish modern music and introduce them to the listeners. 2020 marks the 95th anniversary of Polish Radio, hence the institution's contribution to the creation of musical life in recent decades will be particularly emphasized. The next episode of the programme will be broadcast on 28 April, exceptionally at 9:40 p.m. It will be devoted to the work of Wojciech Ziemowit Zych and his "symphony for percussion and piano quartet" Różnia, written for the Kwadrofonik ensemble and presented for the first time during the "Warsaw Autumn" festival. Is this the opus magnum of the composer? We will find out in the coming days.
