The program of the evening features three concertos written by composers belonging to different generations and contexts. Concerto. Re maggiore for harpsichord and orchestra is a continuation of the cooperation between the ARPO and Andrzej Kwieciński (*1984), whose Luci nella note, composed last year within the Institute of Music and Dance’s program “Composer-in-Residence,” was also given first performance by the ARPO. In turn, the next concerto, North, is the last work by Bronisław Kazimierz Przybylski (1941–2011), who recently passed away. He was born in Łódź and worked at the Łódź Academy of Music, where he initiated semiannual Musica Moderna sessions promoting contemporary music. The third work on the program is the Concerto for flute and orchestra by Paweł Mykietyn (*1971), who is one of the most interesting and popular living Polish composers and has won many awards in international contemporary music competitions. Mykietyn also writes theatrical music (cooperating with, e.g., K. Warlikowski and G. Jarzyna) and film scores (M. Szumowska’s 33 Scenes from Life, A. Wajda’s Sweet Rush, J. Skolimowski’s Essential Killing).
