Symfonia Wielkopolska 1918 - Songs Of The Wielkopo
Format: COMPACT DISC
Poznan Nightingales; Borowicz, Lukasz; Poznan Chamber Choir; Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra
Although the Greater Poland Uprising is the only such victorious initiative in the history of Poland, awareness of its importance in the context of Poland’s regaining independence is still underrated. Therefore, the 100th anniversary of the event is a great opportunity to recall selected songs sung by the insurgents, as well as those composed in the interwar period to commemorate the patriotic uprising. The present album contains a number of representative compositions, among others, by Ignacy Jan Paderewski and Feliks Nowowiejski, which for years have been the musical hallmark of the uprising. The album is complemented by the Greater Poland Symphony 1918, Op. 43 for symphony orchestra, created in 2018, a commemorative work by Marek Sewen, strongly associated with Poznan.
