The premiere of Jakub Sarvas' Orare-Torium will take place at the Collegiate Basilica of the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Wiślica on July 5, 2018, as part of the 24th Krystyna Jamroz International Music Festival in Busko-Zdrój. The next day, the work will be performed at the Kielce Philharmonic.
The inspiration for he work – as the composer notes – was the original meaning of the word oratory, as well as the echoes of events from the tenth century on the land of the Slavs. The work intended for choir, soloists, live electronics and orchestra refers to the primary aspirations of human spirituality and religiosity.
The programme of the concert on July 6 at the Kielce Philharmonic will also include works by W. A. Mozart: Motet Exsultate jubilate KV 165, Ave verum corpus K. 618, and Sancta Maria, mater Dei KV 273. Symphony Orchestra of the Świętokrzyska Philharmonic and Fermata Chamber Choir will be led by Jacek Rogala. Gabriela Gołaczewska will perform as soloist.
The premiere of the work by Jakub Serwas is co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of the "Composition Commissions" programme implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance.
