Rapid current of contemporary music, jazz meanders, depths of electronic searches, safe bays of tradition – all this will sound during the second edition of the Auksodrone festival, which will take place in the Mediateka in Tychy on 4-6 October 2019.
Auksodrone features nine concerts divided into three cycles – Contemporary Opera, New Wave Jazz and Electronics Studies – and a number of accompanying events devoted to how music is born and what is born in us with its magical touch. Co-organizers of Auksodrone are Programme 2 of Polish Radio and PWM Edition.
This year, the Contemporary Opera cycle will be filled with three acts of the Drach. Dramma per musica triptych – a musical drama by Aleksander Nowak to the libretto by Szczepan Twardoch. The work, whose premiere will take place at the festival, is based on Twardoch's novel. Solo parts will be sung by Joanna Freszel, Jan Jakub Monowid and Sebastian Szumski, accompanied by the AUKSO orchestra and Marcin Świątkiewicz (basso continuo).
During the first edition of Auksodrone, the jazz concert series was devoted to native giants of the genre, and this time we will learn what the future of this music sounds like. Leszek Możdżer will construct it from materials found in the distant and closer past.
At this year's Auksodrone, Electronics Studies will be an unprecedented expedition to analogue electronics. Stefan Wesołowski, violinist and composer who is fluent in connecting sacrum and profanum, will replace the electronic layer of his music with acoustic sounds.
