The last in a series of recitals inaugurating the organ in the Main Hall of the National Forum of Music will be a meeting with Roman Perucki, Piotr Rojek and Marcin Szelest. We will hear works by six composers representing various eras and musical styles.

Marcin Szelest will perform two Baroque pieces: the Passacaglia by Johann Caspar Kerll and the Te Deum laudamus by Dietrich Buxtehude. The Passacaglia is a setting of a solemn, slow dance in triple metre, was very popular in the Baroque era. The fantasy based on the theme of the hymn of Te Deum, is one of Buxtehude's longest compositions for organ. It consists of five movements.

Next, Piotr Rojek will present the Litanies of Jehan Alain, a promising French composer who was killed in combat during the Second World War. We will also hear the Organ Sonata No. 1 by Felix Borowski, an Anglo-American composer of Polish origin. He lived in Chicago, where he was director of Chicago Musical College for almost thirty years, but in 1925 he quit the job to devote himself fully to composing.
Roman Perucki will begin his performance with the joyful and majestic Prelude in E flat major by Johann Sebastian Bach. The name of this composer became the basis for a musical cryptogram that used the sounds b, a, c and h (b) in a sequence. Robert Schumann, Ferenc Liszt, Anton Webern or Arvo Pärt wrote works based in this sequence of sounds. It also inspired the composer, organist and teacher Zbigniew Kruczek, born in Lubaczów in 1952, a work by whom also features in Perucki’s performance programmed for this afternoon.
