In September 2022, the Toruń Symphony Orchestra would like to celebrate the 100th anniversary of birth of one of the most outstanding contemporary composers, Kazimierz Serocki, born in Toruń. On this occasion concerts and lectures will take place between the 3rd and the 23rd of September, which are supposed to draw attention to the composer still little known to the general public.
The project was already inaugurated in March this year, presenting the piece Hommage à Serocki by Adam Falenty, composed especially for this occasion. Main celebrations however, will take place in September. 18 events are in the programme, with the participation of such recognized artists as Zygmunt Krauze, Ingolf Wunder and Adam Kośmieja.
During the concert on the 3rd of September, the world premiere of the piece Pianophonie by Serocki will take place, the original interpretation of which will be presented by electronic music producer Szymon Weiss. Ingolf Wunder, winner of the 2nd prize at the 16th Chopin Piano Competition, will perform Serocki's Romantic Concerto for the first time in his career, and on the 23rd of September we will hear the premiere performance of Sercoki’s music to the film Potop.
Co-financed by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage from the Culture Promotion Fund as part of the ‘Music’ programme, implemented by the National Institute of Music and Dance.
