A musical Portrait by: Valentina Maria Baginska @ DAI

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.

  1. Thank you for posting, Halloum!
    Of course I agree with you. I also love to listen to light-classical music and maybe even more with my eyes closed. It’s basicly a feast for my ears rather than my eyes.
    My compliments for this great performance of ms.Valentina Maria Baginska

    The funny thing is that the Radetzky Mars was regarded as real pop-music during the era of of the Strauss family. I hope you’ll forgive me, but I also love another version of the Radetzky Mars, performed by a famous operette ensemble. This orchestra presents populair classical music for all people, at the same way it was conducted by Strauss.
    Including a fantastic show and an audience which enjoyes it in a remarkable way.

    • Thank you for sharing your thoughts =) I love the video! I wouldn’t mind a weekend full of such lovely concerts, the dancing, the dresses, and of course the balloons!
      Thanks again
