We have prepared a jubilee musical surprise for all music lovers - a new album from the Philharmonic in Szczecin which will be available for sale on October 17th. The album 'Mieczysław Karłowicz - Rebirth' has been released for our 70th anniversary and will be available at 70% of the regular price for the first 70 buyers. The album 'Mieczysław Karłowicz - Rebirth' is a joint work by the Szczecin Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra and our Artistic Director, maestro Rune Bergmann. The disc contains Symphony in E minor ‘Rebirth' Op. 7 by Mieczysław Karłowicz.
The choice of this work is not accidental, as this composition perfectly illustrates the entire spectrum of emotions and states of mind accompanying us in key moments of life, and is reflected in the rich history of our Orchestra. This very personal statement by the composer allows us to individually interpret the composition from the perspective of our own experiences, as well as allowing a special journey in the wider historical and social context
- says Dorota Serwa, Managing Director of the Philharmonic.Symphony in E minor ‘Rebirth' Op. 7
(1902) is one of the first orchestral works and at the same time the only symphony by Mieczysław Karłowicz (1876-1909), written at the culmination of his studies in Berlin under Heinrich Urban. The composition, the work on which probably began in 1900, was performed for the first time in Berlin on March 21, 1903
, and the composer himself was conducting. "He did unbelievably well, keeping the mind awake and bringing out all shades of dynamism"
(Stanisław Barcewicz). As one of the two compositions by Karłowicz (next to the poem Returning Waves), it contains a detailed literary program from the composer, which was published in the newspaper "Słowo Polskie".
The album 'Mieczysław Karłowicz - Rebirth' is released on a SuperAudio Compact Disk
, to provide those seekers of best sound quality with a quality rendition of the work. The album is already the second release of the Philharmonic in Szczecin in which one can hear the compositions of the patron of the Institution. The first album ‘Karłowicz. Filharmonia. Szczecin’ was released in 2016 and received a nomination for a Fryderyk in the category ‘Album of the year - symphonic and concert music’.
