Słowińska | AUKSO | Konieczny
Film Music Festival's tribute to Zygmunt Konieczny – not only the creator of the Polish literary song genre but also an outstanding Krakow film music composer. His music will be heard during Słowińska | AUKSO | Konieczny. Konieczny is the creator of music for over a hundred feature, television, documentary and short films. He has composed music to the works of such directors as Jan Jakub Kolski, Andrzej Wajda and Tadeusz Konwicki. He has been awarded both the Polish Film Award and the Gdynia Film Festival Award three times.
The concert is also a premiere and promotion of the live album: Słowińska-AUKSO-Konieczny, recorded with the same line-up in the concert hall of the NOSPR in Katowice. In terms of repertoire, the concert is a summation 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 texts by Stanisław Wyspiański), some are known from the repertoire of Ewa Demarczyk or composed for films (Jańcio Wodnik) and theatre plays (Noc listopadowa). There are also compositions to texts by outstanding 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.
