Emil Szymon Mlynarski (18 July 1870 – 5 April 1935) was a Polish conductor, violinist, composer, and pedagogue. Mlynarski was born in Kibarty (Kybartai), Russian Empire, now in Lithuania. He studied violin with Leopold Auer, and composition with Anatoly Lyadov and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. He was the founding conductor of the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and subsequently served as principal conductor of the Scottish Orchestra in Glasgow from 1910 to 1916. He conducted the premiere of Karol Szymanowski's opera King Roger.

He composed, among other things, a symphony dedicated to his homeland (Symphony in F major, Op. 14, Polonia), and two violin concertos (1897, 1917). The latter concerto, in D major, Op. 16, has been recorded by Konstanty Kulka and Nigel Kennedy.

Emil Mlynarski died in Warsaw at age 64. His daughter Aniela (Nela, Nelly) married Mieczyslaw Munz and later Arthur Rubinstein. He is the grandfather of John Rubinstein and the great-grandfather of Michael Weston, both American actors.

 

Mieczyslaw Karlowicz (11 December 1876 – 8 February 1909) was a Polish composer and conductor. His music is of a late-romantic character. Karlowicz was great admirer of Tchaikovsky whose 6th symphony he praised. Influence of his music can be seen in earlier works of Karlowicz: E minor symphony and the violin concerto. Like most of late romantics he also fell under considerable influence of Richard Wagner with Tristan und Isolde above all. Nevertheless he managed to develop original musical language expressed in harmony and orchestration, latter of which Karlowicz mastered like few other composers and wrote some of the most colourful orchestral music to be found.

Karlowicz wrote a symphony in E minor (Rebirth, opus 7), a violin concerto in A major (opus 8) and his output also contains several tone poems, including Eternal Songs, Stanislaw and Anna Oswiecimowie, The Returning Waves and The White Dove. He also wrote a number of songs for voice and piano, setting words by Kazimierz Przerwa-Tetmajer, Adam Asnyk, and others. Much of the rest of his small output was lost during World War II.

The music of Karlowicz inhabits a prime place in the history of Polish music between Fryderyk Chopin and Karol Szymanowski.

Karlowicz spent much of his later years in Zakopane, in the south of Poland, often enjoying one of his favorite hobbies, photography in the nearby mountain scenery.

 

Krzesimir Debski born 26 October 1953 in Walbrzych) is a Polish composer, conductor and jazz violinist. His music career as a musician has been that of a performer as well as composer of classical music, opera, television and feature films.

Krzesimir Debski studied composition with Andrzej Koszewski, and conducting with Witold Krzemienski, at the Paderewski Academy of Music in Poznan, Poland. Following graduation, Debski became interested in jazz. Since 1982, as the leader and violinist of the jazz group String Connection, he has performed in the United States, Canada and over 25 countries in Europe.

In 1986 Debski has cut down on his concert performances and concentrated primarily on composition. He has composed more than 60 symphonic and chamber music pieces, including an opera, 2 symphonies, religious works and 9 instrumental concertos. Since 1986, he has composed the music for over 70 films, received 8 platinum albums and has composed music for the highest grossing movie in Polish film history, “With Fire and Sword”.

As deputy chairman of the Polish Association of Contemporary Music, Debski has written music for film, theater, symphony, chamber orchestra and experimental ensembles. As a composer, he won the Fryderyk Award (the Polish equivalent for the Grammy Award). He was also awarded The International Film Music Academy, coveted “Philip” prize presented to him by the legendary film composer, Ennio Morricone.

Krzesimir Debski has conducted concerts in which the following international stars performed: Jose Carreras, Nigel Kennedy, Adam Makowicz, The Canadian Brass, Vadim Repin, Mark O’Connor, Jean-Luc Ponty, John Blake, Ewa Malas-Godlewska and Jose Cura.

If the notion persists that Nigel Kennedy is the enfant terrible of classical music -- too rebellious or facile to be taken seriously -- then perhaps it is time to reconsider his categorization. Kennedy's varied interests certainly take him beyond the boundaries of the typical classical performer, and his performance style may be too flamboyant to suit some listeners' tastes. But East Meets East is far from shocking, if understood as an exploration of Eastern European music, presented in a fusion of popular styles without pandering to the classical audience with crossover concessions. Fans of world music and open-minded listeners of any stripe may find something to appreciate here. Appearing with the Polish folk band Kroke and surrounded by several guest artists of international reputation, Kennedy shows that his involvement with this ethnic music is honest, if not always inspired. His playing is forthright and spirited, but sometimes overdone, particularly when his electric violin solos wander into rock clichés. However, Kennedy's occasional excesses are counterbalanced by some fine, expressive playing, most memorably in his unaccompanied track Lost in Time. The musicians play well as an ensemble, perhaps most successfully in the vigorous dance style that reaches maximum frenzy in Kukush. ---Blair Sanderson, Rovi

Classical superstar Nigel Kennedy returns with a critically acclaimed programme of the music of George Gershwin, hailed by The Guardian as “rip-roaring and exquisitely tender”, spirited and playful gypsy jazz arrangements inspired by his friendship with the legendary violinist, Stéphane Grappelli, reminiscent of jamming together as a teenager during his time at the Menuhin School. ---warnerclassics.com

This disc goes places. Nominally it's a set of improvisations by Nigel Kennedy and friends based on Jimi Hendrix tunes, but what starts out in 'Third Stone from the Sun' as a Celtic-flavored "unplugged" style jam session stretches a little further out in 'Little Wing' and '1983' and becomes transformed into something much more dynamic and unpredictable in 'Drifting,' 'Fire,' and 'Purple Haze,' the music-making turning into the kind of kaleidoscopic voyage of discovery for which Hendrix was famous. Amazingly, the "Kennedy Experience," two cellos, two guitars, oboe, flute and bass in addition to Nigel's fiddle, is an entirely acoustic group and only a minimum of electronic effects are used in the production. This is a trip animated entirely by the energy and commitment of the performers. ---Rovi

One of the first musicians to "crossover" from classical music, Nigel Kennedy continues to blur the boundaries with the release of his Greatest Hits album, a title which is normally the preserve of pop artists.

As a whole, the album is essentially a sampler for Kennedy's substantial EMI back catalogue and celebrates his 18-year career with the label. Disc one is filled with sweeteners, such as Massenet's "Méditation", Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending and a couple of movements from his record-breaking recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, while disc two contains one movement each from eight of Kennedy's concerto recordings, namely the Mendelssohn, Bruch, Elgar, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Sibelius and Beethoven as well as the Bach double. Perhaps these tasters will encourage new listeners to fork out for the complete recordings.

There is no sign of Kennedy's experiments with the music of The Doors and Jimi Hendrix (which will be a relief to many) but there are a few little gems to be found. A vigorous and very breathy new recording of the fourth movement of the Bach solo sonata in C demands repeated listening while the slightly wayward performance of Monti's showstopping Csárdás with Polish klezmer band Kroke provides a taster of Kennedy's next disc. --Rebecca Agnew
