Lublin | Artists will celebrate the 450th anniversary of the Union of Lublin

SPAM

On 3 July 2019 the H. Wieniawski Lublin Philharmonic will host an unprecedented music event devoted to the 450th anniversary of the Union of Lublin. The concert at 6pm will feature works written by Polish, Lithuanian, Belarusian and Ukrainian artists.

All these nationalities inhabited the territories of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The meeting of these four cultures, permeating each other for centuries, will thus celebrate the 450th anniversary of the signing of the Union of Lublin Act. The concert will be a unique opportunity to listen to both well-known works and compositions that are rarely performed.

The concert organised by the Lublin Branch of the Association of Polish Musicians will present a cross-section of works from the eighteenth to the twentieth century, representing various genres: from opera arias, songs and solo instrumental works to traditional folk melodies. Next to the works of Stanisław Moniuszko and Fryderyk Chopin, great ambassadors of Polishness, there will be compositions by other Polish composers (Jelski, Joteyko, Noskowski, Niewiadomski) and artists living in the pre-partition Poland and Lithuania (Holland, Stepowyj, Čiurlionis). The programme will also feature several classic compositions for traditional Belarusian cymbals.

The "Concert of dialogue" will feature musicians associated with the Lublin region: singers Anna Barska, Dorota Szostak-Gąska, Natalia Skipor, Mariola Zagojska, Jakub Gąska, violinist Magdalena Maciąg, and pianist Agnieszka Schulz-Brzyska as well as guest artists from Poland and abroad: Natalia Kovalenko from Ukraine, Maria Kuczyńska from Belarus and Aleksander Ładysz. The concert will be hosted by Andrzej Gładysz.
