Are there universal “grammatical” rules that connect Frederic Chopin’s mazurkas to Polish traditional music? This concert is a search for practical answers to these questions. We will return to the source of “rubato style” by creating dialogues between instruments and dancers' steps - and by singing songs that inspired the great Polish composer himself. Perhaps the lost key to Chopin’s music could be found in traditional dances, passed through generations to us, the people of the twenty first century.
Wild Music from the Heart of Poland is part of Campus Project, organized by culture-pl. Additional co-sponsors include CPPS and the Department of Dance.
