The Polish-Ukrainian Musical Dialogues project is a continuation of many years of efforts of the Warsaw Foundation Pro Musica Viva to build musical relations between Poland and Ukraine, and in particular the collaboration of kapellmeister Roman Revakovych with Ukrainian musicians and famous groups. The concert this week is good reflection of this amazing partnership.
The key to the Polish-Ukrainian Music Dialogues project is a meeting of Polish and Ukrainian music and Polish and Ukrainian performers. This time, the project will have two programs. The first part will take place in Kyiv with Polish and Ukrainian soloists like Bozhena Buinitska – soprano (Poland), Maria Berezovska – mezzo-soprano, Oleksandr Chuvpylo – tenor, Taras Berezhansky – bass, as well as the Dumka National Choir of Ukraine and the National Ensemble of Soloists. The Kyivska kamerata conducted by Andrzej Kosendyak, director of the Wrocław National Music Forum, will perform oratorio works by Polish composer Martin Józef Zhebrowski (1710-1792) and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Mass in D minor.
Also known as Zebro, Martin Jozef Zhebrowski is one of the most interesting Polish composers of the XVIII century. His wife Maria Elżbieta was a singer at the royal court, and his son Jan Tomasz were also musicians. Martin Zhebrovsky was highly valued as a composer, violinist, singer, and teacher. He created music that is comparable to the best European models of the time, close to the style of Neapolitan modernism and the direction of galant. This comparison to the musical genius of Mozart and his Mass in D minor, one of his unfinished works, should make for a delightful performance not to be missed.
