The cast of the musical I am working on – “Rhapsody with demons” has been published. The show is based on the hits of Queen. You can stay up to date with the progress of the preparations on our fanpage. The official fanclub of Queen has also launched a dedicated website devoted to the show.
Arranging the music for “Rhapsody with demons” is a truly inspiring process. Each day I absorb the richness and diversity of the music, which Queen had composed. I cannot point out to any other rock group which has such a broad spectrum of musical inspirations and genres. In effect, every other song of the band is a hit.
I am in the course of preparing the play “Rozterki miłosne” for the Grand Theatre (previously known as the Public Theatre) in relation to the 250th anniversary of its foundation. Thanks to this unique opportunity, me and Zuzanna Falkowska composed fully original music for choir and orchestra for the first Polish opera libretto – “Krakowiacy i Górale” by Wojciech Bogusławski. Magłosia Zajączkowska, who is the director of the play reviewed the text and condensed it to one act.
Today we have printed the final music score!
The project is realised by the Grand Theatre’s educational section – the age of each 250 artists taking part in the project – actors, musicians and choir members is no greater than 26 years old. We are in the course of rehearsals and already we are seeing the artists bursting with creativity, engagement and freshness.
The show premieres in November 2015 on the chamber stage of the Grand Theatre.
Please feel invited to the concert Scoring4Wajda as part of this year’s Krakow Film Music Festival. I composed two suites based on Andrzej Wajda’s films – one with the music by Krzysztof Komeda, and the other by Andrzej Markowski. The style of the composers is completely different, but they have one thing in common – they are both geniuses.
You can hear the outcome of my work on May, 28th in Krakow (ICE congress centre) or on May, 29th in Katowice (NOSPR) performed by the The Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra. Paweł Kaczmarczyk’s trio will also feature in the Komeda suite.
The concert will consist of 2 orchestra suites which had been arranged especially for this occasion – one with the music by Krzysztof Komeda, and the other based on Andrzej Markowski’s compositions
