Szopski: Songs / Niewiadomska - Soprano, Blaszynsk
Format: COMPACT DISC
Niewiadomska, Agnieszka; Blaszynski, Szymon
The undeniable traits of Felicjan Szopski’s output are the following: folk music and works by Fryderyk Chopin as his sources of inspiration; nurturing national elements while striving to discover new musical means, different musical narratives, and innovative harmonic solutions; attention to every detail of the composition; well-thought-out, consistently implemented ambitious musical thought remaining in a permanent and unbreakable contact with words. Szopski would select his texts with extraordinary reverence, very consistently, only by Polish writers he knew personally. Szopski’s musical thought conveys the message and the mood of the words, fully reflecting the character of the text. This selection of his songs are performed by soprano Agnieszka Niewiadomska and pianist Szymon Blaszynski.
