Championing Polish Neo-Classical Composer Tadeusz Szeligowski

April 2, 2007

A well-respected composer and pedagogue in his day, Tadeusz Szeligowski (1896-1963) is a little-known figure now, and most of his works are rarely, if ever, heard anymore. Under the leadership of conductor Mariusz Smolij, the Poznań Philharmonic Orchestra recently undertook the recording of several of the composer’s orchestral compositions for Naxos, three of which received their world première recordings. Among the works recorded were the Piano Concerto, from 1941, with guest soloist Bogdan Czapiewski, the Concerto For Orchestra, from 1930, and the Nocturne For Orchestra, from 1947.

The recording sessions, which Mr. Smolij also produced, took place between December 2006 and February 2007 at the Concert Hall of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland, and were engineered by Lech Dudzik. A tentative release date for the CD has been set for October 2007.
