    Grażyna Bacewicz, Concerto for String Orchestra (1948)

    1. Allegro
    2. Andante
    3. Vivo

    Amadeus Chamber Orchestra of the Polish Radio
    Agnieszka Duczmal, conductor

    Grażyna Bacewicz (5 February 1909 – 17 January 1969) was a Polish composer and violinist.
    Bacewicz was born in Łódź. Like Fryderyk Chopin, she came from a bi-national family and, with a Lithuanian father and a Polish mother, she could choose her national identity. She chose to be Polish, but her brother Witold moved back to Vilnius with her father, and ended up in the U.S. as a leading, though little understood, Lithuanian emigré composer.
    Bacewicz had received hear earliest musical training from her father; she started learning violin, piano and theory when she was five years old. Her other older brother, Kiejstut, became a pianist and frequently accompanied her in performances.
    After enrolling at the Warsaw Conservatory of Music to study violin and piano, in 1928 Bacewicz began studies of philosophy at the University of Warsaw (she completed a year and a half). She continued her music training at the Conservatory, studying composition with Kazimierz Sikorski, violin with Józef Jarzębski and piano with Jan Turczyński; she graduated summa cum laude in 1932.
    She studied composition with Boulanger, and violin with André Touret and Carl Flesch. At that time she adopted the neoclassical style for her compositional language and became the first Polish woman composer to achieve national and international stature.
    In the 1930s she was the principal violinist for the Polish Radio Orchestra, organized by the famous conductor, Grzegorz Fitelberg. During the war, she lived in Warsaw, continuing to compose and giving underground concerts (e.g. premiering her Suite for Two Violins). She also dedicated some time to family life: married in 1936, she gave birth to her only daughter, Alina Biernacka (now a famous painter), in 1942.
    After the war, she returned to work as a professor in the State Conservatory of Music in Łódź. During the Stalinist period from 1945 to 1955, Bacewicz, like all other composers, was subject to an increasing ideological control of the new, socialist government.
    She died of a heart attack in 1969 in Warsaw.

  • 5. Music of the Middle Ages; Notre Dame School

    11:44

    Music of the Middle Ages
    An Anthology for Performance and Study by
    David Fenwick Wilson
    ISBN 0-02-872952-8 Schirmer Books

    Part V Parisian Sacred Music

    1. Alleluia: Adorabo ad templum (organum duplum
    2. Veste nuptiali (monophonic, conductus simplex)
    3. O curas hominum (monophonic, conductus cum cuauda)
    4. Ver pacis aperit (two-voice conductus simplex)
    5. A solis ortus cardine (three-voiced conductus cum cauda)

    The HIlliard Ensemble

    Ars antiqua, also called ars veterum or ars vetus, is a term used by modern scholars to refer to the music of Europe of the late Middle Ages between approximately 1170 and 1310, covering the period of the Notre Dame school of polyphony, and the subsequent years which saw the early development of the motet. Usually the term is restricted to sacred or polyphonic music, excluding the secular monophonic song of the troubadours, and trouvères; however sometimes the term is used more loosely to mean all European music of the thirteenth century, and slightly before. The term ars antiqua is used in opposition to ars nova, which refers to the period of musical activity between approximately 1310 and 1375.

    The original uses of the expression, found particularly in the Speculum Musice of Jacobus and once by Johannes de Muris (the only one to use the exact term ars antiqua), referred specifically to the period of Franco of Cologne, approximately 1250 – 1310, but this restricted usage is rarely employed in modern scholarship.

    Almost all composers of the ars antiqua are anonymous. Léonin (fl. late 12th century), and Pérotin (fl. c.1180 – c.1220) were the two composers known by name from the Notre Dame school; in the subsequent period, Petrus de Cruce, a composer of motets, is one of the few whose name has been preserved.

    In music theory the ars antiqua period saw several advances over previous practice, most of them in conception, and notation of rhythm. The most famous music theorist of the first half of the 13th century, Johannes de Garlandia, was the author of the De Mensurabili Musica (about 1240), the treatise which defined, and most completely elucidated the rhythmic modes. A German theorist of a slightly later period, Franco of Cologne, was the first to describe a system of notation in which differently shaped notes have entirely different rhythmic values (in the Ars cantus mensurabilis of approximately 1280), an innovation which had a massive impact on the subsequent history of European music. Most of the surviving notated music of the 13th century uses the rhythmic modes as defined by Garlandia.[citation needed]

    The early Gothic includes the French music composed in the Notre Dame school up until about 1260, and the high Gothic all the music between then, and about 1310 or 1320, the conventional beginning of the ars nova. The forms of organum and conductus reached their peak development in the early Gothic, and began to decline in the high Gothic, being replaced by the motet.

    Though the style of the ars antiqua went out of fashion rather suddenly in the first two decades of the fourteenth century, it had a late defender in Jacques of Liège (alternatively Jacob of Liège), who wrote a violent attack on the irreverent, and corrupt ars nova in his Speculum Musicae (c.1320) vigorously defending the old style in a manner suggestive of any number of music critics from the Middle Ages to the present day (Jacobus 1955–73, book 7, passim). To Jacques, the ars antiqua was the musica modesta, and the ars nova was a musica lasciva—a kind of music which he considered to be indulgent, capricious, immodest, and sensual (Anderson and Roesner 2001).

He is principally known for his performances as a violist, guest of the crème of international music scene such as BBC Last Night of the Proms, Verbier, Great Mountain, Tran Siberian and Edinburgh Festival, Salzburg Festival among others.

  • Philippe Jaroussky & Amanda Forsythe record Gluck: Orfeo ed Euridice - Vieni, appaga il tuo consorte

    5:14

    Duetto del signor Egidio Lasnel from Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice.
    Album out 18 May 2018.

    Star countertenor Philippe Jaroussky continues his exploration of operatic settings of the Orpheus myth with the most famous of the many operas inspired by the story of the Greek poet who searches for his dead wife in the Underworld: Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice. It contains one of the world's best-loved operatic arias, Orfeo's restrained, but moving lament, 'Che farò senza Euridice'. Conducted by Diego Fasolis, his is the world premiere recording of a version of the opera that was performed at the Royal Palace in Naples in 1774, 12 years after Orfeo ed Euridice was staged in Vienna as the first of Gluck's 'reform operas'. In these works Gluck emphasised simplicity of form and directness of expression, consciously rejecting the extravagances of opera seria, which dominated the early 18th century and was typified by convoluted plots and extended showpiece arias.

    POLKA
    The polka is a lively Central European dance and also a genre of dance music familiar throughout Europe and the Americas. It originated in the middle of the 19th century in the Czech lands derived from the sounds of traditional farm equipment and is still a common genre in Lithuanian, Czech, Croatian, Slovenian, Polish, German, Hungarian, Austrian, Italian, Ukrainian, Belarusian, Russian, and Slovakian folk music. Versions are also found in the Nordic countries, the British Isles, The United States, and Latin America, especially Mexico.
    In light classical music, many polkas were composed by both Johann Strauss I and his son Johann Strauss II; a couple of well-known ones were composed by Bedřich Smetana, and Jaromír Vejvoda, the author of Škoda lásky (Roll Out the Barrel).
    (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Polka is a type of dance, and also a genre of dance music. It originated in the middle of the 19th century in Bohemia, and is still a common genre of Czech, Polish and Slovenian folk music; it is common both in Europe and in the Americas. In classical music, many polkas were composed by both Johann Strauss I and his son Johann Strauss II; a couple of well-known ones were composed by Bedřich Smetana and Jaromír Vejvoda, the author of Škoda lásky (Roll Out the Barrel).

    The name comes from German word Polka, meaning Bohemian Dance which comes from the Czech word polka, also meaning Bohemian dance, which itself is lent from the Polish polka, literally meaning Polish woman, fem. of Polak. The word may also be an German-originating alteration of Czech pulka, meaning half. Due to its name it is often mistakenly attributed to Poland. It should also not be confused with the polska, a Swedish 3/4-beat (help·info) dance with Polish roots; cf. polka-mazurka. A related dance is the redowa. Polkas have a 4/4 time signature.
    Some famous polkas are:
    Anna Polka
    Rosamunde
    Bayerisch Kraut Polka
    Beer Barrel Polka
    Helena Polka
    La Trittera Polka
    Polka Romagnola
    La Motozappa Polka

    Classical music for dinnertime:

    We can’t be sure that Bach wrote any concertos specifically for the oboe aside from the C minor concerto BWV1060 – in which it’s partnered by the violin in an exercise of pathos out of all proportion to the modest dimensions of the work itself. The other concertos here come down to us as harpsichord concertos, in which guise they do not sit entirely happily, and it seems more than likely that Bach, as both unhappy Kapellmeister of the Thomaskirche in Leipzig and far more content in his role supplying music, musicians and concerts to Zimmermann’s coffee house in the city, would have been glad to take advantage of the soloistic potential of a resident oboist to craft these Italianate concertos that exploit both the instrument’s origins in pastoral idiom (notably BWV1053, in the ‘pastoral’ key of F major, and its gently swaying siciliano middle movement in 6/8), as well as more urbane and learned counterpoint of which he was undisputed master among his peers.

    Andrius Puskingis is a Lithuanian oboist, now resident in France, who returns to his home city to play and direct these spirited and intimate performances. At present he is the principal oboist with the Heidelburg Symphony Orchestra, who have made an acclaimed series of Haydn symphony recordings with their music director Thomas Fey, and something of Fey’s restless spirit of adventure can also be traced in these fine new recordings.

    Stasys Vainiūnas is famous for his work both as a pianist and composer. He is numbered among Lithuanian composers belonging to Balys Dvarionas' and Antanas Račiūnas' generation, which composed their major works in the period of sweeping historical change and dramatic events. Piano assumes a central place in Vainiūnas' oeuvre. Apart from piano works, his major output consists of instrumental works - from short pieces to large-scale compositions. Stylewise, Stasys Vainiūnas' was in constant change and development - from the first work to the last. His early works bear a clear trace of late romanticism, impressionism, with characteristic tendency towards virtuoso display. Later on his manner of writing gradually becomes much more national in its character. The composer seemed to be constantly intent on searching for new expressive means and artistic concepts. His later works are almost completely void of folk music quotations, within the framework of freely treated classical forms. His melodies, harmonies and orchestration tended to become more complex and colourful towards the end of his life. No less important are Stasys Vainiūnas' activities as a concert pianist, recitalist and teacher. His lifetime dedication to teaching and tutoring young pianists yielded several generations of Lithuanian performers.

    Vytautas Barkauskas (born March 25, 1931 in Kaunas) is a Lithuanian composer and is a Professor of Composition of the Lithuanian Academy of Music, where he has taught since 1961.
    Barkauskas has degrees in mathematics (1953) and music composition (1959) from the University of Vilnius. He was one of the most active avant-garde composers in Lithuania in the 1960s, influenced by Krzysztof Penderecki, Witold Lutosławski and György Ligeti.

    However he has now moved towards more intuitively arranged sounds, striving to create naturally beautiful music, writing more chamber music. I do not restrict myself to any single, defined compositional system, but am constantly searching for a natural stylistic synthesis. I strive to make my music expressive, emotional and of a concerto type, Barkauskas says.

    His works have been performed at international festivals, competitions and concerts in various European, American and Asian countries, and have been interpreted by Gidon Kremer, Lothar Faber, Yuri Bashmet, David Geringas, Joachim Greiner, Juozas Domarkas, Raimundas Katilius, Ruth Palmer and others.

    Vytautas Barkauskas is a winner of the Lithuanian State Prize. In 2000 his Journey of the Princess. Fairy Tale, Op. 114 was awarded the prize at the composers' competition dedicated to the 125th anniversary of the birth of Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis. His symphonic piece entitled At the End is the Beginning, Op. 115 was awarded the prize at the Sinfonia Baltica International Composers' Competition in 2001. In 2003 the composer was awarded the Lithuanian National Award. In 2005 he won the prize for the best chamber work (Echoes for percussion solo) at the composers' competition organized by the Lithuanian Composers' Union.

    Grażyna Bacewicz (5 February 1909 – 17 January 1969) was a Polish composer and violinist.
    Bacewicz was born in Łódź. Like Fryderyk Chopin, she came from a bi-national family and, with a Lithuanian father and a Polish mother, she could choose her national identity. She chose to be Polish, but her brother Witold moved back to Vilnius with her father, and ended up in the U.S. as a leading, though little understood, Lithuanian emigré composer.
    Bacewicz had received hear earliest musical training from her father; she started learning violin, piano and theory when she was five years old. Her other older brother, Kiejstut, became a pianist and frequently accompanied her in performances.
    After enrolling at the Warsaw Conservatory of Music to study violin and piano, in 1928 Bacewicz began studies of philosophy at the University of Warsaw (she completed a year and a half). She continued her music training at the Conservatory, studying composition with Kazimierz Sikorski, violin with Józef Jarzębski and piano with Jan Turczyński; she graduated summa cum laude in 1932.
    She studied composition with Boulanger, and violin with André Touret and Carl Flesch. At that time she adopted the neoclassical style for her compositional language and became the first Polish woman composer to achieve national and international stature.
    In the 1930s she was the principal violinist for the Polish Radio Orchestra, organized by the famous conductor, Grzegorz Fitelberg. During the war, she lived in Warsaw, continuing to compose and giving underground concerts (e.g. premiering her Suite for Two Violins). She also dedicated some time to family life: married in 1936, she gave birth to her only daughter, Alina Biernacka (now a famous painter), in 1942.
    After the war, she returned to work as a professor in the State Conservatory of Music in Łódź. During the Stalinist period from 1945 to 1955, Bacewicz, like all other composers, was subject to an increasing ideological control of the new, socialist government.
    She died in 1969 in Warsaw.

    Bronius Kutavicius is a famous lithuanian composer (b. 1932). His minimalistic music style is unique in its ability to mesmerize and involve the audience in the performance.
    The oratorio Last Pagan Rites (1978) for choir, organ, horns and high voice, is the second in the composers cycle of oratorios. Words by Sigitas Geda. The oratorio is based on the archaic intonation of lithuanian folk songs, and shows, what Kutavicius calls musical archeology. Thus using repetitive phrases, and theatrical movement, the composer takes the listener to a journey through time.

    Mieczysław Karłowicz, (11 December 1876 – 8 February 1909) was a Polish composer and conductor.
    Mieczysław Karłowicz was born in Vishneva (now in Belarus) into a noble family belonging to Clan Ostoja. His father Jan was a Polish linguist, lexicographer, and musician. As a child, Karłowicz studied violin, for which he later composed his only concerto.

    Karłowicz studied in Warsaw with Zygmunt Noskowski, Stanisław Barcewicz, Piotr Maszyński, and Gustaw Roguski. He later studied in Berlin with Heinrich Urban, to whom he dedicated his Serenade for Strings, which he composed and performed while Urban's student. From 1906 to 1907 he studied conducting with Arthur Nikisch.
    Karłowicz's music is of a late Romantic character. He was great admirer of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky whose Symphony No. 6 he praised. Tchaikovsky's influence can be heard in Karłowicz's earlier works, most notably the E minor symphony and the Violin Concerto. Like most of the late Romantics he also fell under the considerable influence of Richard Wagner, especially with Tristan und Isolde. Nevertheless, he managed to develop an original musical language expressed in harmony and orchestration, the latter of which he mastered like few other composers and wrote some of the most colourful orchestral music ever found.

    Karłowicz's music inhabits a primary place in the history of Polish music between Frédéric Chopin and Karol Szymanowski. Among his works are a Symphony in E minor (Rebirth, Op. 7), a Violin Concerto in A major (Op. 8), incidental music to a play The White Dove, and six tone poems, which include The Returning Waves, Eternal Songs, Lithuanian Rhapsody, Stanisław i Anna Oświecimowie, Smutna opowieść, and Epizod na maskaradzie. The Violin Concerto was written for and dedicated to his former teacher Stanisław Barcewicz, who premiered the work under Karłowicz's baton in Berlin on 21 March 1903 with the Berlin Philharmonic.[1]

    He also wrote a number of songs for voice and piano, setting words by Kazimierz Przerwa-Tetmajer, Adam Asnyk, and others. Much of the rest of his small output was lost during World War II. Karłowicz spent much of his later life in Zakopane in southern Poland, often enjoying one of his favorite hobbies, photography, in the nearby mountain scenery. Karłowicz died at the age of 32 in an avalanche while skiing on an excursion in the Tatra mountains in 1909. He was buried at Warsaw's Powązki Cemetery.

    Stepan Anikiyevich Degtyarev
    Opera/Oratorio: “Minin and Pozharsky” or
    “The Liberation of Moscow”

    Stepan Anikiyevich Degtyarev (Степан Аникиевич Дегтярёв) (1766 – 5 May 1813), was a renowned Russian composer of Ukrainian origin of the late 18th century. He was most famous for his nationalistic Russian Choral Music.

    His oratorio Minin and Pozharsky or The Liberation of Moscow (1811) concerned the 1612 liberation of Moscow from Polish occupation during the Time of Troubles interregnum by the Second Zemschina Army led by Kuzma Minin-Sukhoruk, a fishmonger, and Prince Dmitry Pozharsky.

    The Time of Troubles 5 (1598-1613) is the time after the death of Fyodor I 6, the last Russian tsar of the Rurik Dynasty (1157-1598). Boris Godunov (c.1551-1605) who during the reign of Fyodor I had been de facto regent of Russia from c.1585 to 1598 became the first non-Rurikid tsar from 1598 to 1605. His short reign was not as successful as his administration under the weak Fyodor I. After the death of Boris Godunov Russia suffered a period of dynastic crisis and overall internal chaos. The throne was vacant; the great nobles (boyars) quarreled among themselves; the Orthodox Patriarch Hermogenes was imprisoned; Catholic Poles occupied the Moscow Kremlin and Smolensk; the Protestant Swedes occupied Novgorod; continuing Tatar raids left the south borderlands of Russia completely depopulated and devastated, and enormous bands of brigands swarmed everywhere. During the Polish--Muscovite War (1605--1618), in Russia called the Polish invasion or Polish intervention Moscow fell into Polish hands. The nation rose together under the leadership of Kuzma Minin, a Nizhny Novgorod merchant, and Prince Pozharsky. They gathered an all-Russian volunteer army and expelled the forces of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth from Moscow, thus putting an end to the Time of Troubles in 1612. In the battle for Moscow they liberated the city. On November 1 (New Style) 1612 the invaders retreated to the Kremlin and some weeks later the nearby Polish army was forced to retreat. The garrison in the Kremlin surrendered to the triumphant Pozharsky. In 1613 Mikhail I (1596-1645) was elected the first Russian Tsar of what became the house of Romanov (1613-1917).

    Juozas Domarkas, conductor


    Vytautas Barkauskas (born March 25, 1931 in Kaunas) is a Lithuanian composer and is a Professor of Composition of the Lithuanian Academy of Music, where he has taught since 1961.
    Barkauskas has degrees in mathematics (1953) and music composition (1959) from the University of Vilnius. He was one of the most active avant-garde composers in Lithuania in the 1960s, influenced by Krzysztof Penderecki, Witold Lutosławski and György Ligeti.

    However he has now moved towards more intuitively arranged sounds, striving to create naturally beautiful music, writing more chamber music. I do not restrict myself to any single, defined compositional system, but am constantly searching for a natural stylistic synthesis. I strive to make my music expressive, emotional and of a concerto type, Barkauskas says.

Fairy Tale, Op. 114 was awarded the prize at the composers' competition dedicated to the 125th anniversary of the birth of Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis. His symphonic piece entitled At the End is the Beginning, Op. 115 was awarded the prize at the Sinfonia Baltica International Composers' Competition in 2001.

  • Comic strip opera ALPHA

    59

    α (ALPHA)
    Comic strip opera

    “Alpha” is an opera which boldly addresses some of the major social and cultural issues and challenges, viewed both in personal and historical contexts, that people face in the world today, such as gender performance, minority politics, and the decline of grand narratives. The jarring combination of two seemingly distant genres – opera and comics – provides an extravagant backdrop for a story of love and murder with the distinctly strong female protagonist.

    The story is a variation on the tragic fate of Federico García Lorca, one of the most famous Spanish poets and playwrights of the twentieth century. In “Alpha”, Isabel García Lorca, Federico‘s sister, returns to Spain after many years spent in emigration to solve the mystery surrounding her brother‘s death. Although circumstances of Federico’s death remain blurred, his burial place is thought to be located in the vicinity of Alfacar, a little town in Andalusia. The knowledge of the truth is laden with guilt that is trapped in the wheel of time, which constantly brings us back to the beginning and thus becomes an “omega-less alpha.”

    In 2019, comic strip opera “Alpha” awarded main Lithuanian professional theatre award “Golden Stage Cross” for the best opera production of the year.


    Composer Albertas Navickas: “In devising the score for “Alpha, I wished to express my admiration for flamenco melodies and repetitive structures of minimalist music. The opera’s rhythmic texture consists of two layers collated by the principle of contrast: the constant, rhythmic pulse versus the “hovering” high-frequency ringing, as if giving voice to the uneasy silence.”

    Stage director, production and costume designer Dr. GoraParasit: “Not only it is an opera – it is a “comic-strip opera” about a female superhero who is fighting both supernatural and earthly demons, about her trials and struggles in the world. To me, “Alpha” resembles a set of pages – a comic book. “Alpha” is MEGA-feminine.”

    Mieczysław Karłowicz, (11 December 1876 – 8 February 1909) was a Polish composer and conductor.
    Mieczysław Karłowicz was born in Vishneva (now in Belarus) into a noble family belonging to Clan Ostoja. His father Jan was a Polish linguist, lexicographer, and musician. As a child, Karłowicz studied violin, for which he later composed his only concerto.

    Karłowicz studied in Warsaw with Zygmunt Noskowski, Stanisław Barcewicz, Piotr Maszyński, and Gustaw Roguski. He later studied in Berlin with Heinrich Urban, to whom he dedicated his Serenade for Strings, which he composed and performed while Urban's student. From 1906 to 1907 he studied conducting with Arthur Nikisch.
    Karłowicz's music is of a late Romantic character. He was great admirer of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky whose Symphony No. 6 he praised. Tchaikovsky's influence can be heard in Karłowicz's earlier works, most notably the E minor symphony and the Violin Concerto. Like most of the late Romantics he also fell under the considerable influence of Richard Wagner, especially with Tristan und Isolde. Nevertheless, he managed to develop an original musical language expressed in harmony and orchestration, the latter of which he mastered like few other composers and wrote some of the most colourful orchestral music ever found.

    Karłowicz's music inhabits a primary place in the history of Polish music between Frédéric Chopin and Karol Szymanowski. Among his works are a Symphony in E minor (Rebirth, Op. 7), a Violin Concerto in A major (Op. 8), incidental music to a play The White Dove, and six tone poems, which include The Returning Waves, Eternal Songs, Lithuanian Rhapsody, Stanisław i Anna Oświecimowie, Smutna opowieść, and Epizod na maskaradzie. The Violin Concerto was written for and dedicated to his former teacher Stanisław Barcewicz, who premiered the work under Karłowicz's baton in Berlin on 21 March 1903 with the Berlin Philharmonic.[1]

    He also wrote a number of songs for voice and piano, setting words by Kazimierz Przerwa-Tetmajer, Adam Asnyk, and others. Much of the rest of his small output was lost during World War II. Karłowicz spent much of his later life in Zakopane in southern Poland, often enjoying one of his favorite hobbies, photography, in the nearby mountain scenery. Karłowicz died at the age of 32 in an avalanche while skiing on an excursion in the Tatra mountains in 1909. He was buried at Warsaw's Powązki Cemetery.
