Kuropaczewski/Nowak | A Decade in Audiovisual Culture

The recording is part of the multimedia essay created by 20 household names in Polish culture and presented live on February 24th, 2017 during the NInA Finale. It was an event during which we looked back at the last decade in audiovisual culture, as well as the nearly 12-year-long history of the Institute (just days before the merger with the National Film Archive).

Aleksander Nowak is among today’s most interesting young Polish composers. Pieces constructed around stories and anecdotes are his trademark: a preoccupation with elusive, quotidian events, fascinating voyages, and intimate, emotional experiences. His skill at combining narrative experiments and exploring new harmonies has won him two commissions for operas: Sudden Rain (Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera, 2009) and Space Opera (Teatr Wielki in Poznań, 2015), and has led to two albums: Fiddler’s Green (2009), and 3x4+8 (2012).

Łukasz Kuropaczewski is a graduate of the Karol Lipiński Music Academy in Wrocław where now teaches. In 2008, he graduated from Maestro Manuel Barrueco’s course at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore in the United States. Performed at the greatest concert halls across the globe, including London’s Royal Festival Hall, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and New York’s Carnegie Hall. Often performs as a chamber musician but he’s also an ardent teacher of the guitar. Taught at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia from 2007 to 2010.
