The unusual idea of presenting the priceless relic of Polish cinematography with music by Stanisław Moniuszko performed live falls within the Poznan Philharmonic tradition of merging film and music. This time during the concert entitled “Halka on Stage and on Screen” (held on Friday, 20th December at 7 pm in AMU Concert Hall) the pre-war silent film Halka directed by Konstantyn Meglicki will be accompanied by live music performed by Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra led by Adam Banaszak. The concert takes place within the “Polish Music is the Most Beautiful” cycle, the patron of which is Polish Bank PKO BP.
This event completes the celebrations of Stanisław Moniuszko bicentenary in Poznan Philharmonic. An extra feature closing the Moniuszko Year will be the sale of „The Pariah” albums released by DUX label. The concert version of the opera by Stanisław Moniuszko was recorded during the 23rd Ludwig van Beethoven Easter Festival, when performed by soloists, National Philharmonic Choir and Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Łukasz Borowicz.
