Karlowicz: Symphony In E Minor, Op. 7 "odrodzenie"
Bergmann, Rune; Mieczyslaw Karlowicz Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra
The Mieczyslaw Karlowicz Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra began its 2018 anniversary season by releasing an album featuring the only classical symphony of its patron. The event is all the more interesting because this high-tech recording is the first one which, together with the Szczecin Philharmonic, was conducted by maestro Rune Bergmann, who was fascinated by the work of Karlowicz, the artistic director of this institution. The choice of Rebirth at the beginning of the jubilee is not accidental, as this composition, perfectly illustrating the whole spectrum of emotions and states of mind accompanying us in key moments of life, in a specific way is also reflected in the rich history of the orchestra and its city. The programme and emotional ambiguity of the symphony causes its correct performance to have a radically different character. Hence it is particularly worth getting acquainted with the latest interpretation of Rune Bergmann, who, known for his energy, spontaneity, and unconventional approach to work, is mentioned among the most outstanding conductors of the Scandinavian countries.
