The aim of the Novo-Nowowiejski project is to commemorate the 140th birth anniversary of Feliks Nowowiejski, who was a composer, conductor and an organ player who lived in Poznań, and to show his works from a new perspective of the invited Hammond organ players. Audiences will hear pieces such as KujawiakNie tobie smutki piosenkiKołysankaKrólowa niebiosPasterkaNie odwracaj czoła, and also Nowowiejski’s most recognizable work, Rota. The arrangements of these pieces were made by a composer, Iwona Witek, however the performers will decide about how to combine classical compositions of Nowowiejski with the jazz sound of the Hammond organ.
