„Songs from Wielkopolskie Uprising times” and a work dedicated to the heroes of the Uprising, written one hundred years after this event, can be found on the album recently released by Poznań Philharmonic – “Wielkopolska 1918 Symphony”. It begins with eight songs from the Wielkopolskie Uprising times, in new arrangements prepared by young composers (Jan Krutul, Dominik Puk, Marek Raczyński and Jakub Szafrański).

20 december 2018DISTINCTION FOR ŁUKASZ BOROWICZ AND POZNAŃ PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

… VALUABLE AWARDS. Four recently announced nominations to International Classical Music Awards for Polish artists should not pass unnoticed. One of the most valued is for Łukasz Borowicz and Poznań Philharmonic Orchestra for the recording of two Feliks Nowowiejski’s symphonies, as he is another composer of the last century, whose music is worth remembering…

The excerpt derives from an article by Jacek Marczyński, the reviewer of Rzeczpospolita newspaper, in which he pays tribute to the album recorded by Poznań Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Łukasz Borowicz and released by DUX label. The album is the world phonographic premiere of both of Feliks Nowowiejski’s works.

23 november 2018NEXT ICMA AWARD NOMINATION FOR POZNAN PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

In the beginning of this year Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra was presented one of the most prestigious music awards in the world – ICMA 2018 (International Classical Music Awards). We received it for the recording of Feliks Nowowiejski’s “Quo Vadis” oratorio, performed by soloists (Wioletta Chodowicz, Robert Gierlach and Wojciech Gierlach), Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic Choir prepared by Violetta Bielecka and Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra led by Łukasz Borowicz.

On Friday, the 23rd of November, the nominations for ICMA 2019 were announced. We are extremely happy to inform, that once again we have received a nomination for this prestigious award. The recordings of Feliks Nowowiejski’s Symphonies No. 2 and 3, performed by Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Łukasz Borowicz and prepared by DUX record label, were put on the list of albums nominated for ICMA 2019 in the category of symphonic music. Other works nominated in the category include the album featuring Leonard Bernstein’s Symphony No. 2 by Berliner Philharmoniker and Krystian Zimmerman, led by Simon Rattle, or Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphonies No. 4 and 11 performed by Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andris Nelsons.

It is worth highlighting that the album with Nowowiejski’s symphonies was a world phonographic premiere. In 2018 it received the Supersonic Pizzicato Award given by Luxembourgian Pizzicato music magazine. Remy Franck described it this way: Łukasz Borowicz handles the musical details very accurately, so that the music becomes very rhetorical. That’s why the recordings are important not only as phonographic premieres, but also because they show Nowowiejski’s music in a better light, almost enhancing the incomprehensible question: why has it taken both of these works so long to become a part of the repertoire? DUX album is a notable contribution in the evocation and revival of 20th century symphonic music.

26 october 2018Bastille „conquered”… by Łukasz Borowicz

Łukasz Borowicz, Chief Guest Conductor of Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra, on the 24th of October made his debut in Opéra Bastille and… won the hearts of the French audience. He is the first Polish conductor to have led a performance in the Parisian opera.

Borowicz conducted the recent production of Giacomo Meyerbeer’s “Les Huguenots”, which opened the jubilee, 350. artistic season of the Parisian opera in September. The performance, lasting almost 5 hours and requiring about 250 participants, is an immense work. Łukasz Borowicz dealt with it in a marvelous way, which resulted in receiving a thunderous ovation.

On behalf of the management and staff of Poznan Philharmonic we congratulate Łukasz Borowicz his success in Paris! 

For more details see: Wyborcza.pl | Jacek Hawryluk, Paris, 25th of October 2018

 

In the newest issue of Angora magazine Sławomir Pietras also writes extensively about our conductor’s success:

 (…) From the first bars he conducted freely and emotionally, influencing the musicians in a friendly way, though at the same time being consequent in executing all the details of the score. During the performance of this immense work I noted that Borowicz knew it by heart, only once in a while glancing at the sheet music lying on the music stand. (…) A week ago Łukasz Borowicz was spoken of with admiration only in the backstage of Opéra Bastille – now he is on the lips of the whole Parisian opera circle. (…) Before the second act the audience invited Łukasz Borowicz, entering the stage, with an applause. After the performance he received another, this time a standing ovation accompanied with cries of admiration. All the soloist and a choir of over a hundred singers gathered on the stage applauded.(…)

b45837abc2f61b0ad92d23a1e10484ee9d1dca09

Andrzej Boreyko, one of the most valued conductors in the world with Polish roots (his father was a Professor at Adam Mickiewicz University, and his son spent the first six years of his life in Poznan), will become the artistic director of Warsaw National Philharmonic from 2019/2020 season.

In the years 1992-1995 Andrzej Boreyko was the artistic director of Poznan Philharmonic. Then he led several German orchestras (including Hamburger Symphoniker and Duesseldorfer Symphoniker), as well as the National Orchestra of Belgium. Currently he holds the post of an artistic director in Naples Philharmonic (Florida) and is the first guest conductor of a few European orchestras.

After an over 20-year-long break Andrzej Boreyko returned to Poznan Philharmonic, where in 2016-2017 he conducted three concerts, and everything suggests that – despite his new duties – he will continue to perform in the subsequent seasons.

We congratulate the magnificent artist and wish luck and a lot of success while working with the next orchestra he has been entrusted with!

03 september 2018Śrem – the first!

IMG_3680

A year ago regional authorities of Śrem, as the first of the cities and communes in Wielkopolska Voivodeship, started a cooperation with Poznan Philharmonic. On the strength of the agreement signed by Mayor Adam Lewandowski and Managing Director of Poznan Philharmonic Wojciech Nentwig, in the past artistic season a few hundred inhabitants of this beautiful city took part in ten concerts held in our institution. The transits for these events were co-financed by local authorities. Satisfaction and delight of the trips’ participants were so great, that a few days ago the aforementioned signatories made a new agreement for the successive 2018/2019 season. This time the event took place in the Śrem Town Hall, as Adrian Wartecki captured on a photograph. We are truly happy about this contract. Which local authority in the voivodeship will follow in the footsteps of Śrem?
