A concert from the series "Generations" – Generations XXI – will be held on October 28, 2018 at 6.00 p.m. at the Witold Lutosławski Polish Radio Concert Studio.
Concerts from the "Generations" series are organized by the Polish Composers' Union in cooperation with the Polish Radio Programme 2 and the ZAiKS Authors' Association since 2003. They present works of various Polish and foreign composers of the 20th and 21st century generations, artists who have been forgotten or badly represented, orchestral debuts, and premieres performed by experienced musicians.
During this year's 21st edition, we will hear such works as: Dziewczyna o płowych włosach for orchestra by Edward Pałłasz, Concerto for Accordion and Orchestra by Zygmunt Krauze who celebrates the 80th birthday this year, Fantasia luminosité for violin and orchestra by the Korean composer Eunho Chang, graduate of the FCUM. In addition, the concert will feature the world premiere of Duet → Solo for orchestra and electronics by Piotr Roemer and Parada Concerto for percussion and orchestra by Jan Oleszkowicz. Both works were written within the "Composing Commissions" programme, operated by the Institute of Music and Dance. Among the performers there are accordionist Maciej Frąckiewicz, drummer Miłosz Pękala, violinist Agata Szymczewska and Polish Radio Orchestra under the baton of Michał Klauza.
Concert organized by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of the "Music" programme and the "Composing Commissions" programme and co-financed under the support programme of the German Music Competition – a project of the German Music Council. The patronage over the concert was taken byPWM Edition as part of the TUTTI.pl project, promoting performances of Polish music.
