The upcoming album of Baltic Neopolis Orchestra including works by Miko艂aj G贸recki and Pawe艂 艁ukaszewski is a result of both very honorouble and challenging task. Tomasz Tomaszewski, excellent violinist from Deutsche Oper in Berlin, joined the ensemble. This record features compositions by Miko艂aj G贸recki: Concerto-Notturno for violin and string orchestra, Divertimento for string orchestra; and Pawe艂 艁ukaszewski: Sinfonietta, Adagietto and Lenten Music (dedicated to Baltic Neopolis Orchestra). The album has been released by DUX Recording Producers.聽

Undoubtedly, music runs in veins of Miko艂aj G贸recki, born in 1971. One might think that as a son of Henryk G贸recki he is burdened enough, but it is not so. Miko艂aj is his own man or „own composer”, inspired by both various contemporary and past influences. Although he lives and works far from modern Polish trends, G贸recki remains aware of his roots and heritage.

Compositions of Pawe艂 艁ukaszewski, who is three years older than G贸recki, distinguish themselves from others written by the young composers not only due to their stylistic genuineness, but also because of a perfect sense of choral music and complete facture mastery.聽

Works of the two composers are well known all over the world. Their compositions have been performed at many prestigous festivals and awarded with numerous awards.

17-year-old G贸recki won the first prize at the 1st Bielsko-Bia艂a Young Composers Competition. His compositions have often been performed abroad 鈥 in De Ijsbreker Centre in Amsterdam, LincolnCenter in New York, Montreal, Quebec City, Victoria, Edmonton, Washington, D.C. The musicians cooperating with G贸recki include Kaja Danczowska, Jadwiga Kotnowska, Agnieszka Duczmal, Gabriel Chmura, the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice, the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra, and the Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra in New York.

This year 艁ukaszewski was awarded with Polish music award Fryderyk. He has received the Commander鈥檚 Cross of the Order of Polonia Restituta, Silver Medal for Merit to Culture – Gloria Artis, Primate of Poland Award. His works have been performed (and some premiered) by such renowned choral ensembles from London and Cambridge as The Holst Singers, BBC Singers, Trinity College Choir, Tenebrae, Britten Sinfonia and Polyphony.

During album release concert the new video for four parts of Sinfonietta by Pawe艂 艁ukaszewski will have its premiere. This will be a next step in the common area of classical music and music industry.

The special guests of the concert will be: Pawe艂 艁ukaszewski, Ma艂gorzata Pola艅ska (owner of DUX) and prof. Tomasz Tomaszewski.
