On November 14, 2018, Voices of the Mountains will resound in Carnegie Hall for one night only. Embark on a moving journey into the heart of the Polish Tatra Mountains with the best guides you can imagine: renowned composer and world-class conductor Jerzy Maksymiuk, contemporary Polish classical pianist Janusz Olejniczak and multi-instrumentalist Sebastian Karpiel-Bułecka.
Joining the lineup are representatives of the Polish jazz and contemporary classical music scene: Jan Smoczyński, the Atom String Quartet, Jan Młynarski, Michał Barański and the Neo String Quartet. Together they will portray the folklore of the Polish highlands with the music of Karol Szymanowski, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, and Wojciech Kilar, enriched with the sound of drum & bass and jazz.
On November 11, 1918 the nation regained sovereignty after 123 years of foreign rule. It is befitting that on its centenary the works by Polish composers, who left their mark on both Polish and international music, be performed in the world’s most prestigious concert venue, showing how Polish heritage is interlinked with European and American history and culture.
