I know it is late since I went to Dar Al- Athar Al- Islamiya’s musical night couple of weeks ago, but I really have to talk about this one. I will say that I was shocked at the beginning for the kind of music produced as I went there with no knowledge at all about the kind of music that I will be listening to. But Valentina Maria Baginska, was able to produce a whole orchestra by herself.
Maestro Valentina Maria Baginska is a mature European artist with international achievements as a concert organist, pianist, choir and orchestra conductor, music professor, juror, lecturer and impresario.
So what do you expect? The pieces she played were composed by Marian Sawa who was a remarkable personality in the history of Polish music. I cannot deny that this kind of music was very new and modern to me, at some points I felt I was inside a church in Europe. However, some pieces seemed familiar, where other were extremely violent like ‘Ecce Lugnum Crucis’
Maestro Baginska is a very lovable character, you can feel that she’s playing from her soul. Each piece was described by her son (who you can see him in the picture above).
It was a new experience and such a refreshing night
I recorded this humble bad quality video (sorry for that) and I know that you will have to turn your heads and bother yourself if you want to enjoy it (sorry again) but all I cared about then is the music, you have to choose between enjoying the music or recording a video, and you know my choice already! So tell me, what do you think?
This is another interesting video I found on youtube. I hope you will enjoy it.
