The aim of the project "Mirecki, Stolpe, Żeleński – forgotten masterpieces of Polish chamber music" is to present to the widest possible audience the forgotten Polish chamber music of the 19th century, in particular the piano trio genre. The project will be premiered on 27 December 2020 at 6:00 p.m. on Tadeusz Szeligowski Society page.
Program of the concert includes 3 forgotten piano trios: Trio in F-dur, op. 22 by Franciszek Mirecki (1823), Romance. Duettino for violin, cello and piano by Antoni Stolpe (1866) and Trio in E-dur pp. 22 by Władysław Żeleński (1870). These works are of significant aesthetic, compositional and artistic value, which deserve to be permanently included in the repertoire of musicians all over the world. The choice of the repertoire is not accidental – the composers lived and wrote in the 19th century, and all the trios were written over the course of around 50 years; so they show the history of the development of the piano trio genre, which significantly evolved in the Romantic era. Moreover, young Władysław Żeleński completed his first composition studies with Franciszek Mirecki. For years, the works of Mirecki, Stolpe and Żeleński were only available in libraries in the form of manuscripts, some of them were lost or never found. There are also very few published works by these composers.
The concert will be performed by Apeiron Trio – a titled ensemble composed of young and passionate musicians, one of the most important areas of artistic activity is promoting the work of Polish composers.
The project is implemented as part of a creative scholarship and a scholarship in the field of promoting culture awarded by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage.
