Context: Popular!

Context: Popular!

MATTHEW SHLOMOWITZ and his music performed in Cracow!

 

TIME: November 23, 18:00

PLACE: Concert Hall of the Music Academy in Cracow

At the 25. AUDIO ART FESTIVAL [link]

 

Here I present a concert concept named CONTEXT: POPULAR!

It’s made up by four members of Spółdzielnia Muzyczna Contemporary Ensemble – Martyna Zakrzewska, Bartosz Sałdan, Michał Lazar and myself. Here is a short program note:

The spine of this program is a phenomenon of employing and adapting styles, contents, and instruments, widely recognized as belonging to popular genres, into classical contemporary music. Interesting is the role and identity of the performers in search for reasonable balance of distinctive qualities.
