Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Mirage… for orchestra was premiered on the 15th of March by the Polish Radio Orchestra
    and conducted by Szymon Bywalec during festival “Generations XIX” at The Witold Lutosławski
    Concert Studio in Warsaw. The piece tries to catch the nature of mirages – illusions, which
    smoothly transform. Mirage… has a sort of novel narrative form (but not necessarily Livre pour
    orchestre of Witold Lutosławski). The piece consist of spinning musical plots and digressions
    creating a consistent confluence of events. In form creation also very significant is a gradient
    of musical temperament - from objectivity and glassy coolness to expressiveness
    and entanglement.
