We warmly invite you to a concert celebrating Pope John Paul II Day, entitled Fides et ratio – ‘faith and reason’. It includes works created especially for this occasion by three Wrocław composers, featuring accordion, harpsichord, boys’ choir and electronics.

Sero te amavi (Too late have I loved you) is the composition by Marcin Bortnowski, based on the quote from Confessions by Saint Augustine. The composer was born in 1972 in Żary. He graduated from the Wrocław Academy of Music, where he studied composition under Grażyna Pstrokońska-Nawratil. Apart from composing, he also teaches contemporary composition techniques and computer music.

Stanisław Krupowicz is the oldest of the composers whose works are included in the concert programme. He was born in 1952 in Grodno. He developed his musical interest simultaneously with his passion for science. Before he received a diploma from the Academy of Music in Warsaw, he graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics at the University of Warsaw. He received his doctorate at Stanford University in California. His music has been performed in numerous countries around Europe, Asia and both Americas. He was one of the initiators of the Musica Electronica Nova Festival and the first artistic director of this festival. His composition Te Deum (Thee, o God, we praise) uses an early Christian hymn dating from the 4th century.

The last piece in the concert programme is Eulogētos (meaning ‘blessed’ in Greek), a composition by Marcin Rupociński. The composer was born in Wałbrzych in 1971 and studied at the Wrocław Academy of Music, first under Grażyna Pstrokońska-Nawratil and later under Stanisław Krupowicz. As well as music, he is also fascinated with photography – he studied it in the Pho-Bos studio and at the European Academy of Photography. He creates art at the intersection of three media, programming multimedia installations and creating electroacoustic music alongside an interest in computer-assisted composing.
