Andrzej Krzanowski (1951-1990), together with Eugeniusz Knapik and Aleksander Lasoń are the composers known as “Generation ‘51” because of their date of birth, or “the Stalowa Wola Generation”, after the legendary Stalowa Wola Festival. Standing in opposition to the 1950s and 1960s avant-garde, these three wrote music was to be labelled as “new Romanticism”, however, each of them retained his own individuality and autonomy. Andrzej Krzanowski was the one who, of all the “Generation ‘51”, retained the closest links to the avant-garde.

The program of the concert includes Krzanowski’s Audition III (1974) for actor, soprano, 2 accordions, baritone saxophone, trumpet, electric guitar, percussion, tape and projectors, and Audition IV (1975) for voice, siren, cymbals, accordion and 2 tapes, as well as Marcin Bortnowski’s new composition Expectation for cello and chamber orchestra, which is co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage’s “Composing Commissions” program as implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance.
