Wrocław | Seven Songs of the Last Days


One of the oldest symphony orchestras in our country – the Lodz Philharmonic Orchestra – will be a guest of the National Forum of Music on April 12, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. The orchestra will present o programme composed of Romantic pieces, including a symphonic poem Stanisław and Anna Oświecim by Mieczysław Karłowicz.

The title of the concert is a reference to Sieben Lieder aus letzter Zeit (Seven Songs of the Last Days) – a collection of compositions published after Gustav Mahler's death. Among them was the cycle Rückert-Lieder (Songs after Rückert), written to the delightful texts of the poet Friedrich Rückert, which will be included in the concert programme. We will also listen to the fragments of Richard Wagner's famous musical drama Tristan and IsoldePrelude and Isolde's aria Mild und leise (Liebestod). The second part of the evening will be filled with the symponic poem Stanislaw and Anna Oswiecim by Mieczysław Karłowicz, inspired by Stanisław Bergman’s painting Stanisław Oświęcim beside the Body of Anna Oświęcim.
