„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”.

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.(…)
