POLISH HEROINES OF MUSIC
ANA 014
Does music need parity? Probably not, it defends itself. But it is worth noting and emphasising the artistic advantages of outstanding contemporary composers and their unforgettable predecessors - women in Polish music are a voice as separate as it is expressive. The album is the result of cooperation with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, and more specifically the Polskie Heroiny Dźwięku (Polish Heroines of Sound) program conducted by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the wider Polska Music campaign.
BAJGELMAN. GET TO TANGO
ANA 013
Dawid Bajgelman is a composer from Łódź, born in 1888, who used to specialise in adapting Jewish musical tradition to the needs of operettas and cabaret. He founded a symphony orchestra in the ghetto and continued composing. He did not survive the Holocaust; he died in a concentration camp. Fortunately, his music is alive again.

DRACH. DRAMMA PER MUSICA
ANA 012
A musical drama written for voices, harpsichord, strings, looper and dragon. It was commissioned by Filip Berkowicz, curator of the Auksodrone festival in Tychy where it had its premiere. The piece is a fascinating collision of the sensitivity of one of the most outstanding Polish composers of contemporary music and an exceptional writer, awarded and, above all, read in Poland and around the world. They are both sons of this land, so "Drach" by Nowak and Twardoch does not reduce Silesian spirit to the shallow folklore but goes much deeper - under the soil formed of mud and coal, love and corpses, and to the collective subconscious where Drach lives.
IMPRESSIONS ON PADEREWSKI
ANA 011
To say about Krzysztof Herdzin that he is a versatile musician and a titan of work is to say nothing. This pianist, composer, arranger, conductor and music producer also feels at home in jazz (he played in the bands of Jan Ptaszyn Wróblewski and Zbigniew Namysłowski, he is a band leader himself), pop music (he collaborated with, among others, Anna Maria Jopek, Maryla Rodowicz and Edyta Geppert), contemporary music (for which he was nominated to Fryderyk award many times), film and theatre.
BILDBESCHREIBUNG // WORDS LIKE SOUNDS
ANA 002 AV
Composed and performed by Agata Zubel, the opera Bildbeschreibung (Description of a Picture) for two voices, instrumental ensemble and electronics was written to the text of an experimental drama by Heiner Müller.
SONGS & SONNETS
ANA 010
"Singing and vocal music have accompanied me since my early childhood" - says Romuald Twardowski, born 90 years ago in Vilnius. -" Popular tunes, songs hummed by my mother, the sounds of church choirs - all those things were invigorating my imagination."
PROGRAMME V // THE UNFINISHED JOURNEY
ANA 003 AV
Andrzej Krzanowski, a Silesian accordionist and composer, pupil of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, died prematurely aged less than forty. He left behind many symphonic, chamber and vocal-instrumental music works. One of those latter is the meta-opera Programme V, whose world premiere only took place in September 2018 at the ‘Warsaw Autumn’.
