Wind ensembles do have a particular kind of power of their own, particularly when it is the NOSPR’s own, supported by the orchestra’s percussionists. Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, for such an ensemble precisely, is a piece intended to boost American soldiers’ morale during the Second World War. As for time of peace, the composer wanted the work to be performed during the so-called Tax Day, i.e. the day when ordinary citizens pay their taxes.
Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition seemed themselves to be asking for a winds arrangement, as those are the instruments which testify to the colour of the composer’s music. The finale of the cycle is a vision of the great gate in Kyiv, designed by the painter Viktor Hartmann, but never built by the Russians. Right next to it, there are Jean Sibelius’ Finlandia and Edward Elgar’s Nimrod from the “Enigma”Variations – the latter painting a portrait of the biblical despot who failed in his enterprise of building a tower which would reach the heavens. Music has its meanings – what is important is that it brings the common individual hope.

[Adam Suprynowicz, translated by Mikołaj Witkowski]

Duration of the concert: approx. 60 minutes
