Oct. 01, 2020
On October 24, PWM Edition together with Teatr Wielki in Warsaw present a concert in honor of the 90th birthday of composer Romuald Twardowski. Bass-baritone Tomasz Konieczny and pianist Lech Napierała will perform songs and sonnets by Romuald Twardowski. These works are also featured on the newest CD by ANAKLASIS, a division by PWM Edition, titled Romuald Twardowski – Songs and Sonnets, featuring Tomasz Konieczny and Lech Napierała.
Romuald Twardowski is an award-winning Polish composer, valued educator and long-standing promotor of Polish music. Straying away from the avant-garde, he selectively incorporates novel music techniques into his idiom. By juxtaposing medieval traditions and 20th-century achievements, Romuald Twardowski writes music that is original, yet accessible to listeners and performers alike. One of the most important composers of his time, Romuald Twardowski will be presented with the Commander’s Cross of the Order of Colonia Restitute during the event.
