3 Songs to Baczyński

for baritone and piano / orchestra (2021)

  • Fragment 1
  • Fragment 2
  • Fragment 3
Performers: Tomasz Konieczny, Lech Napierała

The cycle of songs to chosen poems by Krzysztof Kamil Baczyński was inspired by and composed especially for bass-bariton Tomasz Konieczny. The first performances were presented together with Gustav Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder and with video installation by Adam Dudek. The music and image create a mini-monodrame about death forseen, remembered and experienced.

Chosen poems are: Spojrzenie (A Glympse), Wigilia (Christmas Eve) and Śmierć (Death).
