They are called the "king of instruments". Majestic and monumental. They are one of the largest and most complex instruments in terms of construction. They have a rich and long history, as well as extremely extensive sound possibilities. It is the organs that will become the main hero of the next concert in the "Power of Classics" series.
On December 1, 2019, the absolute classic of the organ repertoire will be heard in the atrium of the Focus building in Warsaw. The concert will begin with Toccata and Fugue in d-moll minor BWV 565 by Johann Sebastian Bach, in a slightly different version - in the version for organ and symphony orchestra. The composer's genius of the greatest Baroque artist will meet with the romantic and colorful sound of the symphony orchestra.
The highlight of the evening will be the III Symphony of Camille Saint-Saëns called "organ". This is one of the most important works in the output of the French composer, as well as in the entire symphonic repertoire of late romanticism. This is the quintessence of Saint-Saëns's individual style. The song's narrative guides the listener through a whole range of emotions, and subsequent themes build the mood for the monumental finale in which the organ leads.
At the end, the famous Toccata from the 5th Organ Symphony by Charles-Marie Widora will sound, in an unusually rich arrangement. The combination of a symphony orchestra, organ and choir creates the infrequently encountered fullness of sound, which is the pinnacle of the traditional performance apparatus.
The concert will be performed by the irreplaceable Polish Radio Orchestra in Warsaw conducted by Michał Klauza, which will be joined in the final by the Warsaw University Academic Choir and the University of Warsaw Choir of the Faculty of Physics. Organ parts will be performed by prof. Roman Perucki. Especially for the purpose of the concert, an organ prospectus will be built in the atrium of the Focus building, and all will be complemented by illuminations.
Just as the organs combine visual arts, music and construction, so this concert will be a peculiar combination of arts, so that you can feel the MOC KLASYKI with every sense.
