ROKduo | Between the Oder & Bug River

When

Sunday 7 April from 3pm to 4pm

“Between the Oder and Bug River” with ROKduo

ROKduo is a duet of two violinists: Lucjan Szaliński-Bałwas and Marcin David Król, whose extensive repertoire contains a variety of musical compositions from different musical genres, from classical music, through film scores, musicals and world music, to pieces inspired by rock.

The major part of ROKduo’s repertoire is comprised by pieces of Polish composers such as Dawid Lubowicz, Henryk Wieniawski, Fryderyk Chopin and Ewelina Nowicka. In addition, the group performs a large number of pieces alluding to Jewish tradition.

ROKduo find it vital to explore own, unique musical style through drawing inspiration from music from around the world, employing non-standard playing techniques, and improvisation.

The musicians are the members of Radom Chamber Orchestra, with Lucjan Szaliński-Bałwas being the concertmaster and Marcin David Król being the leader of the second violins section.

ROKduo performed at The Festival of Jewish culture ‘Zachor – Colour and Sound’ in Białystok; the ‘Wpółdrogi Festival’ in Kazimierz Dolny; “Summer in Koneser” in Warsaw; other cities in Poland, in Kazachstan, Kirgistan and USA.

“Between the Oder and Bug River” is a musical project encompassing pieces by Polish composers from different historical epochs, varying in musical styles.

Many pieces of this suite have been composed by Carpathian violinist, Dawid Lubowicz. His compositions make reference to his heritage and the folklore of Tatra mountaineers. His oeuvre also shows inspiration that stems from folk music of various countries, in which he employs innovative sounds, and gives performers a chance to improvise. The programme also includes the virtuoso composition of Ewelina Nowicka’s ‘Jonglerous’, Henryk Wieniawski’s ‘Kaprysy’ and the pieces by Fryderyk Chopin, Dawid Lubowicz and Michał Kleofas Ogiński.
