Drrrum Dana Dam - Polish Songs From Kurpie
Format: COMPACT DISC
Kusiel-Moroz, Krzysztof; Fryderyk Chopin University of Music Chamber Choir
Krzysztof Kusiel-Moroz is a graduate of the Warsaw Academy of Music in the classes of Prof. Stanislaw Wislocki and Prof. Ryszard Zimak. Since 1990, he has become known as an experienced choral conductor, undertaking new challenges in this area. In 2017 (since the ensemble was established), he was appointed as the artistic director of the Chamber Choir of the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music, with whom he recorded this album. The Drrrum Dana Dam album includes two cycles inspired by Kurpie Songs; Kurpie Songs for mixed choir a cappella by Roman Maciejewski and 6 Kurpie Songs for mixed choir a cappella by Karol Szymanowski. Although the composers of these cycles may have never come into direct contact with the native Kurpie tradition, both are among the most perfect manifestations of inspiration by Polish folklore, ingeniously adapted on the basis of classical music.
