The concert on October 14, 2018 at 6 pm, in the headquarters of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice, will premiere a new composition by Artur Zagajewski.
Święty Boże, Święty Mocny, which Artur Zagajewski dedicated to his wife, was written to the well-known lyrics of Jan Kasprowicz's hymn. The composition was created for the excellent actor, vocalist and director Arkadiusz Jakubik, known, among others, from Wojciech Smarzowski's films. The work is inspired by the music of trashmetal bands, including albums of the Slayer group. Zagajewski's work was co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of the "Composing Commissions" programme, operated by the Institute of Music and Dance.
Performed by the Orchestra of New Music under the direction of Szymon Bywalc, we will also hear Belgian and American music. Fremdkörper # 3 by the Belgian composer Stefan Prins was created after the death of Michael Jackson and is a kind of "memoriam" for the King of Pop. The composition ... blood blossoms ... (... blood blossoms ...) by the American composer Ken Ueno was influenced by S. Burroughs' Naked Lunch, which suggested to Ueno that "beauty can be found in a medium full of potential power and destruction."
