The music of 20th century Polish composer Roman Maciejewski was showcased at the Warsaw Rising Museum on March 30. Organized by the Warsaw Rising Museum, PWM Edition and Polish Radio Program 2, the concert included various piano, orchestral and chamber works performed by the Chopin Piano Duo. The program emphasized the composer’s modern style, as influenced by his teacher Karol Szymanowski, blended with neoclassicism. The highlight was Maciejewski’s crowning achievement, the rarely heard Requiem, which was dedicated to war victims.
The concert was attended by the composer’s brother and champion of his music, Wojciech Maciejewski, and was moderated by Barbara Schabowska of Polish Radio Program 2, who was joined by prof. Anna Brożek, a pianist and philosopher.
