A presentation of new work by Ewa Fabiańska-Jelińska in the series “Contemporary chamber miniature in the times of pandemic. First performances” will take place on 10 September 2020 at 12.00 p.m. on the Academy of Music in Poznań's website, Facebook profile and YouTube channel.
As Ewa Fabiańska-Jelińska points out, 'A Piece Do A.S. [To G.A.] for viola and harpsichord, or Do Anioła Stróża [To the Guardian Angel], is a musical reflection on the presence of the Guardian Angel in our lives. In particular phases of the miniature of variable character, from motor and figurative to lyrical, calm and muted, various sounds are presented – through single notes to extended chords – sometimes referring to tonality, and sometimes in the form of clusters'. As Padre Pio said: 'The light of the sun was paler than the glow of my Guardian Angel. The whole form of this good spirit shone like lightning, because by nature and grace all heavenly spirits were God's mighty and holy angels'. The piece will be presented by outstanding professors of the Academy: violist Lech Bałaban and harpsichordist Maria Banaszkiewicz-Bryła, head of the Department of Historical Instruments.
The series “Contemporary chamber miniature in the times of pandemic. First performances ” presents premieres of works by composers associated with the Academy of Music in Poznań. On subsequent Thursdays we will hear miniatures composed by the Academy's teachers: Michał Janocha, PhD (17 September), Prof. Artur Kroschel (24 September), and Prof. Zbigniew Kozub (1 October) – the cycle will end on the International Music Day.
