Rebel Babel Film Orchestra is a project involving a unique, international orchestra, which gives concerts all around the globe, each time inviting different artists to become part of their artistic image, combining styles and mixing genres in an uncompromising way. This time, Łukasz L.U.C. Rostkowski, the author behind the project and a musical visionary, is going to take the audience on an unforgettable journey to the musical universe of Krzysztof Komeda or Jan A.P. Kaczmarek, the first of who composed music for a number of films by Roman Polański, Marc Foster, or Jerzy Hoffmann, for example. And that is not be all, as their music will be accompanied by some of the greatest classic pieces composed for Polish films, just as the song Ach jak przyjemnie by the legendary Henryk Wars.
A powerful Torun-related music accent will the ballad Nim wstanie dzień composed by Krzysztof Komeda, which was the leading theme in the film The Law and the Fist. The film was made in 1964 with its entirety shot in Toruń — it is often referred to as “the first Polish western.”
To accompany him on stage of the Toruń edition of his music project, L.U.C. has invited two female artists: Maria Sadowska and Dorota Miśkiewicz. Both of them seemingly represent two different worlds of music. In reality, though, they share the passion for music, the courage to discover its new territories, the uncompromising approach to compositions, and the tendency to set the bar up high. While in Toruń, the Rebel Babel Orchestra will have pianist Dominika Czajkowska and Whoop Group in their ranks. They will be accompanied on stage by a brass band from Chełmża.
The concert of L.U.C. & Rebel Babel Film Orchestra will be part of the Energy of Polish Film Music section of the festival. Join us on Saturday, 19th October, at the Cultural and Congress Centre Jordanki, at 7.00 p.m.
APATOR S.A. is exclusive Partner of the “Energy of Film Music” Section.
