The Time Quartet will perform the most beautiful classical compositions by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and Ludwig van Beethoven, whose 250th birthday is celebrated this year by the whole world.

The second concert will take place on Tuesday, 25 August at 5.00 p.m. at the "Reymontówka" Creative Work House in Chlewiska.

Lusławice | Emanacje Festival 2020 – Atom String Quartet

Emanacje

Atom String Quartet, one of the most intriguing string quartets in the world made up of great Polish jazz musicians, will perform on 16 August 2020 as part of the 8th Emanacje Music Festival at the Elżbieta and Krzysztof Penderecki Arboretum in Lusławice.

Krzysztof Penderecki gained fame as an uncompromising avant-gardist, and then turned to tradition in an equally uncompromising way. For years he was not afraid of meetings and confrontation with new phenomena in culture. In his career, the composer went through a period of fascination with free jazz music: “I remember that at the turn of the 1960s and 1970s I met Frank Zappa, who liked my music very much and asked me about composing techniques. Around that time, I also wrote a jazz piece which I conducted at the Donaueschingen Festival. ' Actions – a concert album by Penderecki, Don Cherry and The New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra, produced by the legendary Joachim Ernst Berendt and recorded at the festival in Donaueschingen, was released in 1971.

Penderecki continued to inspire new generations of artists. In 2013 Piotr Orzechowski 'Pianohooligan' found in the music of the Polish composer the lost spirit of jazz. In 2019 Krzysztof Penderecki's work was interpreted by the Atom String Quartet. The upcoming concert will feature chamber and solo works from the composer's youthful period, interspersed with Three Pieces in the Old Style, created by the composer from fragments of his film music to The Saragossa Manuscript by Wojciech Jerzy Has. The Capriccio for tuba solo has been expanded in the quartet's interpretation, and the jazz tone distances the piece significantly from the original. An equally radical setting, somewhat humorous, full of dissonances pleasantly irritating the ear, was given in the interpretation of the ensemble to Three Miniatures for clarinet and piano. The closest to the original are Three Pieces in Old Style, which always begin with a quote from the original.

Warsaw | Experimental Tuesdays: Spółdzielnia Muzyczna Contemporary Ensemble

SpoldzielniaKraków-based Spółdzielnia Muzyczna Contemporary Ensemble will perform on the stage at Grochowska 272 on 18 August 2020 at 8.00 p.m. Artists famous for their unconventional interpretations of the greatest avant-garde musicians will premiere Plants Concerto with Pianosong by Piotr Peszat, a composer associated with the ensemble.

The piece inspired by Jonathan Harvey's work, Bird Concerto with Pianosong, will metaphorically give voice to plants – the bioelectric activity of flowers measured during the concert will shape the entire work. The repertoire of the evening will also include Jagoda Szmytka's Electrified memories of bloody cherries, Carola Bauckholt's Laufwerk – inspired by the works of Czesław Miłosz, Øyvind Torvunda's Neon Forest Space – peculiarly referring to the primeval forest, and Matthew Shlomowitz's Jazz in the Park from the Popular Contexts 7: Public Domain Music series – combining street sounds with music.

Experimental Tuesdays, a new series of contemporary music concerts, examine the relationship between music and nature as well as respond to the challenges of modernity, including man’s influence on the environment, the climate crisis, the progressing digitization of life, the lack of algorithmic transparency, and the lack of internet privacy. The series features four ensembles: Ensemble Garage, Hashtag Ensemble, Spółdzielnia Muzyczna, and Małe Instrumenty. Concerts are held as a part of the 20th edition of the Sinfonia Varsovia’s Festival to Its City Festival.

Katowice | Hear us at the Silesian Museum

Sezon Letni

15 August is a special day in Poland – not only because of the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, but also the Feast of the Polish Armed Forces. A few days later falls the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second Silesian Uprising, therefore the concert played that day by the musicians of the Silesian Philharmonic as part of the series "Hear us at the Silesian Museum" will present an appropriate programme.

The Silesian Philharmonic Choir, conducted by Jarosław Wolanin, will perform uprising, military and patriotic songs. We will also hear fragments of Broad Waters, Op. 39 by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, a series of songs based on traditional songs from the collection of Jadwiga Gorzechowska of that title and from Jadwiga Gorzechowska and Maria Kaczurbina’s What It Used to Be Like in Kurpie. The Symphony Orchestra of the Silesian Philharmonic under the baton of Jarosław Wolanin will perform Symphony No. 100 in G major 'Military' by Joseph Haydn, Etude in E major, Op. 10 No. 3 by Fryderyk Chopin in an orchestral arrangement and film music by Wojciech Kilar.

A special part of the evening will be the concert premiere of Three Warsaw Polonaises by an unknown 18th-century author, arranged for chamber orchestra by Szymon Laks, the bandmaster of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Orchestra. In the Nazi camp, performing and listening to Polish and Jewish music was forbidden, but the prisoners, risking their lives, violated this prohibition. In the inhuman conditions of the camp, being in touch with native art gave at least a substitute for humanity. Three Warsaw Polonaises were recorded last year by the New Music Orchestra conducted by Szymon Bywalc, who will also stand on the conductor's podium on 15 August. The recording was made with the financial support of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Victims Memorial Foundation and under the patronage of the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum in Oświęcim.

Lusławice | Emanacje Festival 2020 – Meccore String Quartet

Emanacje

The next concert of the Emanacje Festival in Lusławice will take place on Sunday, 9 August 2020 at 7:00 p.m., presenting works by Beethoven and Penderecki – composers who were crossing the borders, paving new paths, and changing the face of music. In the year of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth and the death of Krzysztof Penderecki, their music takes on a special meaning. The Meccore String Quartet, one of the most outstanding string quartets in Europe, will perform chamber works by both composers.

Beethoven is a unique figure in the history of music, a rebellious artist, eulogist of the revolution, a man full of contradictions. He boldly expressed with sound what for other composers remained unimaginable for a long time. Krzysztof Penderecki expressed a similar attitude. He was constantly surprising and delighting with his music. As noticed by Mieczysław Tomaszewski, it was Penderecki who invented the formula of the necessity to "be rooted twice in the earth and in heaven", he used the labyrinth metaphor as a symbol of the creative path, he dared to say what others perhaps sensed: "We found ourselves at the point where the most creative way is to open the door behind you". Penderecki's phenomenon consisted in the fact that even when he "opened the door behind him", he was still in the avant-garde movement.

Beethoven began working on his first cycle of six quartets, Op. 18 being less than 30 years old. He remained faithful to ​​this genre throughout his life, subjecting it to revolutionary transformations and leading to an unprecedented flourish, the most striking example of which is the Grosse Fuge, Op. 133. Penderecki, like Beethoven, reached for the quartet genre before his thirties. His String Quartet No. 1, which can be described as a small sonorist poem, was written in 1960. The composer introduced surprising and unusual sonic effects strictly according to the rules of the "magic square". String Quartet No. 2 was written 8 years later, also being an expression of innovative explorations in terms of sound. While the aesthetics of the post-war avant-garde believed that the work accepted by the general public was not art, Penderecki was sure that the artist's mission was to create works that would find social resonance and connect people.

The second part of the evening will feature a trombone quartet composed of Grzegorz Kurowski, Mateusz Konopka, Marek Przegendza and Piotr Misiak. The soft and warm sound of the trombones will be a fantastic continuation of the first part of the concert. The quartet will perform diverse arrangements of compositions by Jerry Bock, Irvin L. Wagner and many others.

Zakopane | 43rd Karol Szymanowski Music Days Festival

Dni Szymanowskiego

The programme of the 43rd Karol Szymanowski Music Days in Zakopane, which will take place between 30 August and 6 September 2020, is focused primarily on the works of Ludwig van Beethoven, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki and Karol Szymanowski.

In 2020, the entire musical world is celebrating the 250th birth anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven. We can hear the influence of his artistic work in the 20th-century music, the best proof beeing Henryk Mikołaj Górecki's oeuvre. The composer, born in Czernica, drew inspiration from the Master of Bonn on many occasions. His music is also very close to Karol Szymanowski's work. Górecki was a student of Bolesław Szabelski, who was a student of the patron of the festival – in a straight line Górecki continues Szymanowski's musical heritage. Moreover, we cannot ignore the Silesian composer's love for Szymanowski's music and Podhale itself. If we add works by Ludomir Różycki, Ignacy Jan Paderewski and Marcin Jachim (the winner of the 60th Tadeusz Baird Composers' Competition), we get a diverse range of Polish music from the beginning of the 19th century to the beginning of the 21st century, which will be presented during the Festival.

Outstanding performers guarantee perfect interpretations of the achievements of these masters. The festival will be inaugurated by the Dafô Quartet, celebrating its 25th anniversary. We will hear violin recital by Sławomira Wilga, winner of the 1st Prize at the 1st Karol Szymanowski International Music Competition in Katowice, piano recitals by Radosław Sobczak and Eligiusz Skoczylas, concerts of the Silesian Quartet and the Sinfonia Varsovia String Ensemble under the direction of Jakub Haufa. The festival will end with a performance of The Highlander's Dance from Szymanowski's ballet Harnasie, arranged by Wiesław Świderski.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a maximum of 50 people can attend fesival concerts. Starting from 20 August, you can reserve your seat by phone at +48 607 820 795.

"Polskie Muzyczki": educational films on Polish composers

Polskie Muzyczki

The idea of ​​a new project "Polskie Muzyczki" ("Polish Women Musicians") is to create a series of educational films devoted to Polish composers, which will be posted on YouTube and Facebook. The premiere of the project will take place on1 August 2020 at 5.00 p.m.

The project was created in response to the needs of the audience participating in joint concerts of clarinetist Barbara Borowicz and pianist Anna Miernik, who promote Polish music and the achievements of Polish composers.

In times of uncertainty for culture, the winners of international competitions temporarily transferred some of their activities to the Internet. The artists want to pursue the idea of ​​"learning through play" –  their short film episodes will contain high-quality content presented in a light and pleasant form of a dialogue. Facts from the history of music will intertwine with funny anecdotes, which will make the materials accesible to an average audience and help to break the "artist-viewer" barrier. Each of the eight episodes will be devoted to a different Polish composer, including Piotr Rytel, Witold Friemann, Antoni Szałowski, Grzegorz Fitelberg, Marcel Chyrzyński, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki and Mikołaj Górecki. The composers themselves – Maciej Zimka, Ewa Fabiańska-Jelińska, Martyna Kosecka and Michał Papara – will take part in a few episodes. The aim of the project is to encourge listeners to participate in live concerts when it is fully possible.

Lusławice | Emanacje Festival 2020 – Karol Szymanowski Quartet

Emanacje

The outstanding Karol Szymanowski Quartet will start the August edition of the Emanacje Festival in Lusławice. On 1 and 2 August 2020 the ensemble will perform two late string quartets by Krzysztof Penderecki and an early quartet by Ludwig van Beethoven.

Penderecki often emphasided that for him Beethoven was a very important composer. Although he is considered one of the Viennese classics, he definitely went beyond the classical rules of composition. Beethoven revolutionized almost every genre he created, and his string quartets became a special ground for changes. Twentieth-century music developed in a direction far from Beethoven's harmonic and formal patterns, and the string quartet was finally freed from comparisons with the late works of the last classic, becoming a medium of personal expression.

Penderecki's String Quartet No. 3 (2008) follows this trend. The title "Pages from an Unwritten Diary" indicates that the music brings personal confession. Stylistically, the work is in line with the Haydn-Beethoven tradition, representing the neo-romantic chamber music. String Quartet No. 4 (2016) – the last quartet in Penderecki's catalog of works – was written in a similar style. It was composed for the Belcea Quartet, one of the best string quartets in the world. The composer worked on the extended version of the piece until the end of his life. Death interrupted the process of expanding the work, which remained a nostalgic reflection of memory, the symbolic last page of the Artist's sound diary.

Warsaw | 34th Warsaw Music Encounters

WSM

The 34th Warsaw Music Encounters were cancelled in May 2020 due to the pandemic, however, we know the new date and formula of the festival. Thanks to the collaboration with the PROM Kultury Saska Kępa and the Służew Culture Centre, four chamber concerts will take place on 5, 7, 8 and 9 August at 7.00 p.m. with live broadcast on the Internet.

In the year of coronavarius, Bastarda Trio will present its project Ars moriendi – a musical passage through the ritual of death and funeral in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Members of the Hashtag Ensemble will perform a premiere Polish-German programme, including new compositions by Wojciech Błażejczyk, Jacek Domagała, Thomas Gerwin, Aleksandra Kaca, Gisbert Naether, Dariusz Przybylski, Jarosław Siwiński and Lothar Voigtländer.

Karolina Mikołajczyk & Iwo Jedynecki will present Polish works for violin and accordion, including premieres of new pieces and compositions dedicated to this excellent duo (Marcin Błażewicz, Andrzej Karałow, Wojciech Kostrzewa, Jacek Sienkiewicz and Ignacy Zalewski).

The title of the last concert – "Ars vitae" – should be a good omen for the future. Let the inspiring meeting of Krzesimir Dębski (violin, synthesizer) and Tadeusz Sudnik (electronics) be a symbol of overcoming the first (and hopefully last) pandemic of the 21st century.
