About

Chopin University Chamber Choir, Krzysztof Kusiel-Moroz, Irena Gulewicz, Adrianna Żołnierczuk, Kacper Szemraj and Aleksander Słojewski perform Polish songs from Kurpie including works by Szymanowski and Maciejewski.

The Drrrum Dana Dam album includes two cycles inspired by Kurpie songs; Kurpie Songs for mixed choir a cappella by Roman Maciejewski and 6 Kurpie Songs for mixed choir a cappella by Karol Szymanowski. Although the composers of these cycles may have never come into direct contact with the native Kurpie tradition, both are among the most perfect manifestations of inspiration by Polish folklore, ingeniously adapted on the basis of classical music.

Krzysztof Kusiel-Moroz is a graduate of the Warsaw Academy of Music in the classes of Prof. Stanisław Wisłocki and Prof. Ryszard Zimak. Since 1990, he has become known as an experienced choral conductor, undertaking new challenges in this area. In 2017 (since the ensemble was established), he is the artistic director of the Chamber Choir of the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music, with whom he recorded this album.
