Świętokrzyska Philharmonic: New Polish Music – Concerts for Soloists and Orchestra

FilharmoniaAs part of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage programme "Culture on the Web", the Oskar Kolberg Świętokrzyska Philharmonic has made audiovisual recordings of works by Polish composers, commissioned or premiered by the Philharmonic in recent years. The materials are available on the Philharmonic's YouTube channel.

The following works were recorded in 2020 as part of the "New Polish music – concerts for soloists and orchestra" project: Aistheticos for saxophone, piano and orchestra by Hanna Kulenty, Wind's Anger for saxophone and orchestra by Bartosz Kowalski, Sinfonia Concertante for percussion and orchestra by Ignacy Zalewski, and Concerto for flute, piano and orchestra by Mikołaj Majkusiak.

The pieces were performed by renowned soloists: percussionist Leszek Lorent, saxophonists Paweł Gusnar and Bartosz Duś, flautist Anna Karpowicz and pianists Marek Bracha and Magdalena Duś. They were accompanied by the Świętokrzyska Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Jacek Rogala. The presentation of each composition is preceded by a short lecture that introduces the composer, his or her sound language and the ideas behind the selected piece. The concerts are hosted by Beata Młynarczyk, an animator and educator who focuses on popularizing music. The WDK Cultural Information Platform in Kielce – the media patron of the project – was responsible for the registration and post-production.
