THEMES OF DRACULA
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.

“I see this music as a summary of what we have played with Kuba so far. From the start, two tendencies have competed in us: It was either shared impulsiveness, or joint constructing effort. These two have met here for the first time, based on Kilar’s motifs, so one could call this project our first joint composition – a kind of suite,” Piotr Orzechowski explains.

“Playing with Piotr for the last five years, we have developed our own form of communication in music. Wojciech Kilar’s compositions have proved highly congenial to our own sound language, providing us at the same time with endless resources of inspiration on every occasion when we play this material,” says Kuba Więcek.
