Joanna Słowińska & Jarosław Bester - Bal u Pana Boga

From Wyspiański's diagnosis in "Wyzwolenie", to contemporary poetry and literary songs, dealing with the topic of freedom in national, existential and cultural terms. Compositions by Zygmunt Konieczny, some were dedicated to Joanna, others composed in recent years for films and theater performances. Songs about freedom: Stanisław Wyspiański, Jacek Kaczmarski, Włodzimierz Wysocki, Wojciech Młynarski, Jan Jakub Kolski, Ernest Bryll and other unnamed authors. The captivating interpretations of Joanna Słowińska and the virtuosity of Jarosław Bester create an intimate musical spectacle unique in form and mood.
