Katowice | Concert to Commemorate 40th Anniversary of Pacification of "Wujek" Mine

FSThe Upper Silesian Pantheon and the Silesian Philharmonic organise a special event on 12 December 2021 at 7.00 at the Cathedral of Christ the King in Katowice. A symphonic concert, filled with extremely emotional and expressive music, will commemorate the 40th anniversary of the pacification of the "Wujek" mine.

On 16 December 1981, ZOMO units and the army carried out the bloodiest pacification during the martial law period – a massacre in the KWK "Wujek" coal mine, where about three thousand miners were on strike. The 40th anniversary of the pacification will be commemorated with a unique concert. The Silesian Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Yaroslav Shemet, together with the outstanding soloist Monika Sendrowska, will celebrate it with the music of Silesian composers. We will hear the most famous symphony by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, the extremely lyrical and meditative Symphony No. 3 "Symphony of Sorrowful Songs" and the premiere of a new piece by Adam Wesołowski, Songs of Angels for string orchestra, prepared especially for this occasion.

Górecki's Symphony No. 3 is a piece that touched the hearts of millions around the world. In three movements the composer used a 15th-century Polish lament of Mary, mother of Jesus, a message written on the wall of a Gestapo cell during World War II, and a Silesian folk song of a mother searching for her son killed by the Germans in the Silesian uprisings. Wesołowski's Songs of Angels is a piece inspired by the desire to take the listener into a world far from worldly problems. Symbolically, it refers to the light, God and the angelic choirs.

"Polish Tears" Album Premiere – On the 40th Anniversary of the Introduction of Martial Law in Poland

Collegium CantorumSuffering has always been an integral part of Polish culture, including music. It resonates in the works of renowned 20th-century Polish composers which make up the new album of the Czestochowa Philharmonic Choir Collegium Cantorum Łzy polskie [Polish tears]. The album will premiere on 13 December 2021.

The date of the album premiere is a symbolic one. On the 40th anniversary of the introduction of martial law in Poland, let us focus on music that tries to understand suffering, bring relief and lead us to emotional catharsis.

Apart from presenting the music of prominent composers, the album touches a broad theme of suffering and its sources, so different for each artist and person. The list of composers is not accidental. Andrzej Nikodemowicz, Tadeusz Paciorkiewicz, Edward Pałłasz and Wojciech Kilar – born at the beginning of the 20th century, they lived in Poland fighting for freedom and true independence, struggling with many adversities, sacrificing a lot – including their own security – to cultivate and promote Polish culture. Their work clearly shows the national spirit, love for the homeland and fundamental values ​​on which Polish culture is based.

The album also includes the first recording of a unique piece Orfeusz w lesie [Orpheus in the Forest] by Tadeusz Paciorkiewicz to the words of Krzysztof Kamil Baczyński.

From 13 December, the CD will be available for sale on the publisher's website www.instytutsztuki.com. It will also be released in digital distribution (Spotify, Deezer, iTunes, Amazon).

Katowice | "Generation '51 on their 70th birthday": Silesian Quartet, Piotr Lato & Piotr Sałajczyk

KwartetThe Generation ‘51 composers began a current in Polish music which Andrzej Chłopecki called neoromanticism. The next concert of the Silesian Quartet in the series "Generation '51 for their 70th birthday" on 4 December 2021 at 6.00 p.m. in the NOSPR Chamber Hall will be an opportunity to verify this statement.

The instruments featured in Eugeniusz Knapik’s Trio for violin, clarinet and piano provide a connection with Béla Bartók’s Contrasts, but also with Darius Milhaud’s and Alexander Arutiunian’s suites, Stravinsky’s Soldier's Tale and Khachaturian’s Trio, written for the same type of ensemble. Yet, it was not referencing history that mattered for the composer. It was the sum of timbres offered by such an ensemble and reaching for the essence of the trio genre. The piece, commissioned by Walter Verdehr in 2003, premiered at the “Warsaw Autumn” International Festival of Contemporary Music.

Can performers provide inspiration for the composer? Two years ago, the Silesian Quartet performed Bettina Skrzypczak’s String Quartet No. 4 and Mieczysław Weinberg’s Piano Quintet in one concert in Bern. It was after the concert, at which the composer was present, that the idea of writing a new piece for the same classical type of ensemble, piano and string quartet, burdened with a long tradition, yet also letting one’s sonic-timbre imagination wander freely. Bettina Skrzypczak's Piano Quintet will be premiered by the Silesian Quartet and Piotr Sałajczyk.

Bettina Skrzypczak's piece was co-financed by the Minister of Culture, National Heritage and Sport from the Culture Promotion Fund as part of the "Composing Commissions" programme, implemented by the National Institute of Music and Dance.

Premiere of the album "Chamber Music by Jan Adam Maklakiewicz"

Maklakiewicz

The Józef Madeja Association in cooperation with the publishing house of the I.J. Paderewski Academy of Music in Poznań has released a unique CD "Chamber music by Jan Adam Maklakiewicz". It contains hitherto unrecorded chamber works by an outstanding and unjustly forgotten Polish composer.

Jan Adam Maklakiewicz is one of the most outstanding Polish composers of the first half of the 20th century. He studied composition with Roman Statkowski at the Warsaw State Conservatory (1921-1925), and then with Paul Dukas at the École Normale de Musique in Paris (1926-1927). His stylistically diverse work includes over 500 catalog items. Pieces from the period of studies with Roman Statkowski derive from the tradition of Romanticism and indicate a clear influence of Mieczysław Karłowicz's style. Beginning in 1926, Maklakiewicz's work made a shift towards modernity due to in his fascination with Karol Szymanowski's music, as well as his studies in Paris, where he learned about the latest trends and tendencies in European music.

Chamber music is of secondary importance in Maklakiewicz's work. The chamber works by Jan Adam Maklakiewicz are mostly miniatures and cyclical pieces consisting of up to three parts. The stylistics of the composition is inspired by early music and Polish folklore, especially of the regions of Podhale and Silesia.

The Polish and world discography includes a few recordings of the composer's works – they are mainly vocal-instrumental and orchestral works. This record release is therefore all the more valuable as it presents compositions recorded for the first time in history. They are: Reflexions, Op. 14 for violin and piano (1926), Ave Maria for cello and piano (1933), Spring in the Countryside. Triptych, Op. 18 for cello and piano (1927) and the Hutsul Suite op. 15 No. 1 for violin and piano (1926). In addition, the album includes selected songs for voice and piano: Lullaby, There is no Cure for Love, I'll Disappear From Your Sight Like a Bird, as well as 2 Japanese Songs: No. 1 Night as a Phantom Image and No. 3 Autumn Carried by the Wind in the version for soprano and piano (1922-23).

Recordings on the album were made by award-winning artists, winners of international music competitions: Piotr Kosarga – violin, Krzysztof Karpeta – cello, Barbara Tritt – soprano and Hanna Lizinkiewicz – piano. The recordings were made on 22-24 September 2021 at the Aula Nova of the Ignacy Jan Paderewski Academy of Music in Poznań. Recording direction, editing and mastering: Konrad Lizinkiewicz.

Co-financed by the Minister of Culture, National Heritage and Sport from the Culture Promotion Fund, as part of the "Musical Trace" programme implemented by the National Institute of Music and Dance.
