The late Lew Gillis wrote Ten More Duets for Bass Trombone and/or Tuba (or in combination) as a response to the lack of literature for the instruments. They are fun and challenging, fitting well into the range of both Bass Trombone and Tuba.

Stanisław and Anna Oświecimowie PW2834 Mieczysław Karłowicz Symphonic Poem Op. 12
35,00 € 35,00 € 35.0 EUR

The genesis of the symphonic poem Stanisław and Anna Oświecim [Stanisław i Anna Oświecimowie] reaches deep into the composer’s youth and is shrouded in mystery. Adolf Chybiński, the composer’s scrupulous biographer, notes that between 9 and 14 February 1893 the Karłowiczes and their children were in Cracow for the wedding of their daughter Wanda and Zygmunt Wasilewski, when the then sixteen-year-old Mieczysław saw Stanisław Bergman’s painting Stanisław Oświęcim beside the Body of Anna Oświęcim
[Stanisław Oświęcim przy zwłokach Anny Oświęcimówny] on display in the Cloth Hall. Bergman, a talented pupil of Jan Matejko, was born in Krosno, where since the seventeenth century the burial crypt of the Oświecim siblings had stood in the Baroque chapel-mausoleum in the Franciscan church. The subject of a local cult, around the turn of the nineteenth century that crypt became the source of a popular, and thoroughly Romantic, legend of the tragic love between brother and sister. The legend fell on fertile soil in the young Mieczysław’s psyche. As we know from several people close to the composer – Helena Romer-Ochenkowska, Alina Świderska and Kazimierz Prószyński – Mieczysław was extremely fond of his cousin Ludwika Śniadecka; a close acquaintance of the composer, Stanisław Szumowski, suggested that this youthful love played a crucial role in the later inspiration of the symphonic poem. The Romantic motif of unrequited love, or of an unhappy or tragic love, appeared already in Karłowicz’s songs, then in his overture to The White Dove [Biała gołąbka] and his first symphonic poem, Returning Waves [Powracające fale]. Karłowicz showed a particular liking for such stories. But was he merely following the fashion of his melancholy, pessimistic times? Certainly not. Such an attitude was undoubtedly fuelled by personal experience and by the composer’s mental disposition – his depressive nature and solitude. And so the poem Stanisław and Anna Oświecim is a characteristic example of the musical setting of the Romantic myth of ‘unhappy love’; it is a programme work, in which the dramatic narrative is transformed into a finalistic structure of ‘an aspiration to eternity’.

Three Paganini Caprices Pw10946 Karol Szymanowski Op. 40 Violin And Piano From ''Karol Szymanowski - Works'' Ed. By T.Chylińska B9 Prepared By B.Konarskafrom
25,70 € 25,70 € 25.7 EUR
Three Paganini Caprices op. 40 were written in the winter and spring of 1918 in Elisavetgrad, at the time of the centenary of the publication of these compositions by the Italian virtuoso in Milan. The Paganini cycle had inspired many composers; one need only mention the bravura piano works by Liszt, Brahms and – closer to our times – Lutosławski. Szymanowski’s aspirations were more modest: he needed a repertoire for the concerts he gave with the violinists who were his friends. Thus he wrote a free paraphrase of three caprices: No. 20 in D minor, No. 21 in A minor, and the most famous one in the cycle, the theme with variations No. 24 in A minor. The presence of the piano provided Paganini’s works with harmonisation, which obviously changed the character of the music. This is most clearly perceptible in Caprice No. 1 which was transformed into a romantic miniature. The first two works are dedicated to Paweł Kochański, the third to Józef Ozimiński. The Caprices were first performed by Wiktor Goldfeld, together with the composer, on 25 April 1918 in Elisavetgrad.

Anthology Of Contemporary Music - Oboe Pw9977 Włodzimierz Kotoński Pwm

The new PWM Edition series presents the selected works of Polish 20th century composers intended for solo instruments. The first two collections are for oboe and cello. The next, which will appear in 2000, will include works for violin, for flute and for melodic percussion instruments. Each of the anthologies contains mostly works which have not been published yet, composed in recent years. They also provide information about the composers and their output in bilingual version: Polish-English. OBOE Works, one of which has already been published by PWM Edition and the remaining ones, composed in the latter half of the nineties, are printed for the first time: Monochromy by Włodzimierz Kotoński Serpentine by Krystyna Moszumańska-Nazar Choralvorspiele by Edward Sielicki Sonatina by Wojciech Widłak Zakopane Suite (for reed mouthpiece) by Witold Szalonek These compositions form a survey of different styles and techniques, ranging from the work Choralvorspiele inspired by the music of J.S. Bach, the classicizing Sonatina to the Suite, which departs from the convention both in its tonal and its formal layers. The anthology is, at the same time, a study of contemporary musical notation for a given instrument and, owing to its varied degree of difficulty, it may also serve didactic purposes. Beside works, which are not very complicated, we find virtuosic ones, such as Serpentine or Monochromy, using - in the highest degree - the diversified technical and expressive potentialities of the instrument as well as those referring to tone colour.

"[...] This simple story has a profound meaning for me, a timeless meaning, conveying the essence of artistic creativeness or even the essence of culture and our participation in it. [...]" So wrote Zbigniew Bujarski about the sources of his inspiration.
The symphonic poem Peirene is a programmatic work, its music originating in Greek mythology - its various motifs being treated in a fairly free way by the composer. (Cracow, 7 - 8 November 2003, from the programme of the concert).
