Hochgeladene Datei

“Guitar in the Garden: Łukasz Kuropaczewski” is the name of a programme being presented on 23 July 2015 at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts in Katonah (state New York). The Polish guitarist Łukasz Kuropaczewski will perform the world premiere of the new solo guitar work “Triptych” by his fellow-countryman Krzysztof Meyer in the “Sunken Garden”.

Kuropaczewski will also be the soloist at the German premiere of “Triptych” on 2 August 2015 in Haltern at the “Sythener Gitarrentage” (Sythen Guitar Days). One day later he will present the work in the Oberste Stadtkirche as part of the 24th International Guitar Symposium in Iserlohn, one of the largest classical guitar festivals in Europe.

Krzysztof Meyer on “Triptych”:
“I already wrote the Concerto for Guitar, Tympani and Strings for the outstanding Polish guitarist Łukasz Kuropaczewski. The ‘Triptych’ for guitar solo is my second work for this interpreter. The individual titles of the ‘Triptych’ movements - Fantasia, Aria and Impromptu furioso – refer to the characters of the individual movements.
I completed ‘Triptych’ for guitar solo in December 2014. The piece is permeated by double contrasts: in terms of harmony, the guitar’s own mood and sound world are contrasted with my harmonic thinking. In terms of technique, on the other hand, performance gestures of the Flamenco tradition are contrasted with those of the practice of classical guitar playing. The dialogue between different harmonic and historical levels can thus be discovered through a complex, clearly demarcated discourse. The performance duration of the work is about 15 minutes.”
