#SHARPENYOUREARS WITH ANAKLASIS: THE LABEL’S THIRD BIRTHDAY
22 / 11 / 2022
The most fascinating phenomena in contemporary music; a wide range of genres; outstanding works, excellent composers and performers – are the trademarks of the record label ANAKLASIS, launched by PWM Edition. ANAKLASIS is now celebrating its third birthday. It continues to grow at a dizzying pace and maintains the high artistic standards of its releases.
Virtuosity with a Flourish. Elżbieta Sikora’s CONCERTOS album premieres on 2nd December!
18 / 11 / 2022
When asked to attempt a definition of her music, she called it lyrical expressionism. The choice of this term says much about the emotional intensity of Elżbieta Sikora’s music, which may reflect the experience of her two home countries, Poland and France, but is also a consequence of her artistic maturation in an age when two powerful trends – the avant-garde and neo-Classicism – were vying for the palm. Such a label may also result from the artist’s focus on the listener as her target, whom she invariably attempts to surprise, shock, or bewilder.
Szymanowski X-Rayed. The album SZYMANOWSKI / X-RAY premieres on 14th November!
28 / 10 / 2022
The workings of inspiration are truly inscrutable. Karol Szymanowski sought it in the Antiquity, the Orient, and in Polish folklore. The artists of to-day, though cast from a different mould, are in turn inspired by the oeuvre of Szymanowski. They take up anew what the giant of Polish music left off nearly a hundred years ago and use his works as a point of departure for more explorations, a journey into the unknown.
The last part of the Silesian Trilogy. The album Pokora. Dramma giocoso premieres on 7th October!
30 / 09 / 2022
A creative clash of artistic individualities is always a high-risk venture that might only seem fit for a one-time success. Contrary to expectations, collaboration between one of Poland’s most eminent 21st-century composers and one of the best contemporary writers continues to develop, producing ever more surprising results.
A New Life of Dracula. The album THEMES OF DRACULA from ANAKLASIS premieres on 19th August!
18 / 07 / 2022
When cinema’s great visionary Francis Ford Coppola is calling – the director of The Godfather and Apocalypse Now – who would hang up on him? Wojciech Kilar took up the offer of cooperation, which resulted in his soundtrack (now of cult status) for the tale of the Transylvanian monster whose love was a bit too strong. Years later, this pathetic-lyrical cantata for mixed choir and symphony orchestra has been turned inside out by pianist Piotr Orzechowski and saxophonist Kuba Więcek. The album THEMES OF DRACULA, comprising deconstructed themes from Dracula, will go into distribution as of 19th August, as part of the catalogue of PWM Edition’s label ANAKLASIS.
A Present-Day Vision of Virtuosity. The album LEGEND premieres on 24th June!
06 / 06 / 2022
“I’ve focused on chamber music in order to bring out as much colour in the violin itself and its changing sound as possible,” says virtuoso Adam Bałdych about his vision of Wieniawski’s music. Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung called Bałdych “technically the most accomplished violinist of our time”. Technical proficiency and thorough education (which includes an honours degree from Katowice’s Academy of Music and a scholarship to Berklee College of Music) do not stop Bałdych from taking an unorthodox approach to the time-honoured music of old masters.
The Best 20th-Century Recordings of Chopin’s Music available from ANAKLASIS as of 1st March!
14 / 02 / 2022
There are plenty of ideas for how to play Chopin, ‘iron rules’ for Chopin performance, and hypotheses concerning possible ways of interpretation. In the 3CD-box FRYDERYK CHOPIN – PIANO CONCERTOS / ÉTUDES / CHAMBER WORKS from ANAKLASIS we present treasures from archive recordings: a veritable pageant of artists who made the history of 20th-century Polish pianism.
