Mironczarnia

English pronunciation: Meeroncharnya

This piece was awarded by Maestro Ennio Morricone
in the 1st International Competition of Choral Composition
Florence, Italy 2014

 

     My true dream is to hear this piece being performed by choirs of different nationalities, sounding like they are singing the original words of the extraordinary "Mironczarnia" written by a Polish poet Miron Białoszewski.
     Since the poem is hard to translate and none of the translations can bring the specific sounds of the original poem, which I truly admire, I decided to prepare transcriptions /phonetic versions/ in different languages to make it accessible and easy to sing for everyone and so that it always sounds like the original poem - regardless of the nationality and native language of the performers.

Pater Noster


This piece was commissioned by Chór Sceny Muzycznej Gdańsk for the opening
concert of the International Choir Festival Vratislavia Sacra 2014

 

     I based this work on a motive that appears in the very beginning of the piece. When I wrote this simple four-bar sequence some time ago I immediately felt the calmness and sadness kept in these notes. At first I wanted to use it for a piece which would be suitable for Good Friday, but at the same time I didn't want to write something that could be performed only once a year. I was hesitating a lot, so I decided to leave it for a while then.
     Fortunately some time later my friend Beata Śnieg who is a conductor needed a special piece that her choir could perform at the opening concert of Vratislavia Sacra festival (which is held around the time of Easter) but at the same time a piece which could be performed during any other sacral concert. I immediately felt that it will be something exceptional and I decided to write music to the Latin words of the Lord’s Prayer. This text is so important that I was sure that it was the right time to use this four-bar sequence which I had already written and compose a piece based on the most important prayer in the Christian religion, which could bring all the feelings accompanying the Passion Week.
     I instantly knew that at some point of the piece I will use also different languages simultaneously saying this prayer and uniting in the final “Amen” as the metaphor of peace and harmony which should exist between the people.My true dream is to hear this piece being performed by choirs of different nationalities, sounding like they are singing the original words of the extraordinary "Mironczarnia" written by a Polish poet Miron Białoszewski.

Silent night


     This is my version of music to words of the probably most known carol. I wrote this at the end of 2012 for my friend who is a conductor. She was going to take part in the National Carol Competition with her choir and I wanted to give her something special. As it turned out - her choir won the first prize in their category and also the Grand Prix of the whole competition performing my "Silent night".
     I think that carols should be sung in the native language of singers and audience, because they can give this special magic feeling then. That's why I prepared versions in a lot of languages:

Farewell in China
 

     This one was finished during the last holidays. At first it was a part of a rock ballad that I wrote several years ago for my band, but when I became more and more interested in choral music, I found that the idea, on which my song was based, would suit choral aesthetics very well. So I rethought the whole piece once more and arranged it for choir.

SZ#R#F##SK#

 

     The piece was commisioned by the Medical University of Gdansk Choir (which is one of the oldest student ensembles in Poland) to open the jubilee concert on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the artistic work of Maestro Jerzy Szarafiński. The idea of enriching the show with a work composed specially for the event came little more than a week before the date of the concert. Therefore there was not much time for writing and the additional challenge was the fact that the choir has maximum two rehearsals to prepare it (as it turned out, there was only one). The conductor responsible for preparing the show agreed to my idea that if in the entire concert (lasting almost two hours) there is not a single contemporary piece, it would be a good idea to create a modern composition based on the last name of the jubilarian. I decided to write a scetch score and tell more things directly to the conductor, because time was extremely valuable in this situation.
