The movie tells a story of a long forgotten, yet congenial Polish composer Eugeniusz Morawski (1876-1948).
His works we have today were composed mostly between 1910-1920 in Paris and were saved from fire due to his brothers sacrifice, who looked for the only copies in the remnants of Morawski's house after Warsaw Uprising in 1944.
All the rest, about 80%, burnt.
In 2011 Monika Wolińska, after hearing in the radio the only recording from '70s decided to record 3 symphonic poems of Morawski with Sinfonia Varsovia and publish them for the very first time, therefore bringing back to our culture this amazing individual.
The music of Morawski, very rich and emotional, is very much a film music, although composed some century ago.
The album will be released on April 2012 together with the DVD with the movie.
Thank you to all of those involved.
The movie was selected for Camerimage 2011 "Images of Music" section.
