Słowińska - Aukso - Konieczny


live @NOSPR

A phonographic project based on premiere audio recordings illustrated with video recordings, documenting a concert of  compositions by Zygmunt Konieczny - the creator of the Polish literary song genre. The event took place in the NOSPR concert hall in March 2018 with the participation of Joanna Słowińska, the AUKSO orchestra conducted by Marek Moś and the Stanisław Słowiński Quintet. The project consisted in part of premiere performances and recordings - in new arrangements by Stanisław Słowiński, made in consultation with the composer.

The concert was received with ovation by the audience of nearly 2,000, who filled the NOSPR hall. In terms of repertoire, it is a sum of Konieczny's compositional achievements; the composer dedicated some of his works to the soloist Joanna Słowińska (including solo parts of the cantata form "Serce moje gram" to the lyrics by Stanisław Wyspiański), some are known from the repertoire of Ewa Demarczyk or composed for films ("Jańcio Wodnik") and theater performances ("Noc listopadowa"). There are also compositions to the lyrics by eminent poets (Maria Jasnorzewska-Pawlikowska, Julian Tuwim, Miron Białoszewski, Wojciech Młynarski, Agnieszka Osiecka and others) - defining today the rank and canon of the literary song genre.

The phonographic part of this project is complemented by video recordings illustrating the musical part and - made immediately before and after the concert at the NOSPR - interviews with the creators of the event: Joanna Wnuk-Nazarowa, Zygmunt Konieczny, Joanna Słowińska, Marek Moś, Stanisław Słowiński.

Online premiere: 30/09/2020. The album will be available free of charge for internet users for 6 months from the date of its online release.
