Premiere of the new album Polish Landscape by Les Femmes ensemble will take place on 8 September 2019 at 7 p.m. at the St. I. Witkiewicz Theatre in Zakopane as part of the 'Music on the Heights' Festival.
The album is an anthology of Polish vocal lyrics of the last 150 years. The rich selection of songs by Polish composers from the Romantic era to the present day is the basis of the ensemble's original performance, staged under the title Polish Landscape. Individual songs create a script of an artistic spectacle about the experiences and emotions that have accompanied women over the last two centuries. Part of the selected repertoire was recorded for the first time (Stanisław Niewiadomski's Cupid and Heart, Bohdan Riemer's Sunset, Stefan Kisielewski's Request for happy islands, Romuald Twardowski's Vocalization).
Coming from the Tri-City, Les Femmes is known for their innovative approach to classical music. By realizing their own artistic needs, the artists created a new stage form – opera collage. As a chamber ensemble, they successfully recreate ambitious repertoire, enhancing the musical effect with acting, set design and beautiful costumes. Works connected by a coherent plot are shown in a new context and create a captivating musical collage with a consistent stage action. In addition, the ensemble uses the latest technical improvements: visual and sound effects as well as multimedia graphics.
