Polish Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra will perform on 6 September 2020 at 5.00 p.m. at the Freedom Square in front of the Zagłębie Palace of Culture in Dąbrowa Górnicza, inaugurating the new artistic season of the instituion. The concert entitled "Dąbrowa Resident in Paris" will present profiles of Polish composers who created in exile, in Paris.
14 September marks the 106th birth anniversary of Michał Spisak – an outstanding artist from Dąbrowa Górnicza, appreciated and awarded in international composers' competitions, who, as a result of a combination of circumstances, spent over half of his life in France, mainly in Paris. The Jerzy Semkow Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra under the baton of maestro Marek Wroniszewski and the soloists Piotr Sałajczyk (piano) and Antoni Dąbrowski (bassoon) will present one of Michał Spisak's works in the excellent company of works by two other "Polish Parisians": Fryderyk Chopin and Wojciech Kilar.
Written in 1944 in the French Vouroin, Michał Spisak's Concerto for bassoon and orchestra is a work that the French audience liked the most in the post-war years. Published in 1833, already during Chopin's stay in Paris, Fantasie sur des Airs Nationaux Polonais, Op. 13 is a delicious mix of motifs derived from Polish traditional music. During the September concert we will also hear vigorous pieces by Wojciech Kilar from the films Pan Tadeusz, The Promised Land and The Leper.
The intriguing stories and relations of Polish artists with the French music world, the elite and everyday life will be presented in the accompanying exhibition Chopin, Spisak, Górecki, Kilar. Paris brawls, which will be available in the "Gallery behind the glass" from 6 September to 16 October 2020.
