On 30 March 2020 at 9.00 p.m. the Artur Rubinstein Philharmonic in Łódź invites you to jointly listen to the online premiere of Piano Concerto No. 1 by Alexander Tansman performed by Julia Kociuban and the Łódź Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Paweł Przytocki.
The recording comes from the album Bacewicz. Tansman. Piano Concertos (DUX), which was nominated to the "Fryderyk 2020" Phonographic Academy award in the 'Classical music. Album of the year: concert music' category. The recording of the Alexander Tansman's concerto is a world phonographic premiere.
The history of Polish music knows many cases of instrumentalists and composers who spectacularly triumphed abroad, while collecting a number of negative or indifferent reviews in the country. This group of outstanding artists of the twentieth century undoubtedly includes Alexander Tansman – the artist who constantly won the hearts of listeners around the world (including France, the United States and Japan), while being completely marginalized in Poland. His Piano Concerto No. 1 was very well received in France.
