A Recital of Settings of his Poetry
Oda Slobodskaya (soprano)
Marian Zigmunt (bass) Frederick Stone (piano)
This programme consists of settings, by Polish, Russian, and German composers, of poems by the Polish poet and patriot, the centenary of whose death was marked last Saturday in a broadcast talk by L. R. Lewitter.
Mickiewicz lived for some years in Paris, where he knew Chopin; and the recital includes one of the two settings of Mickiewicz made by Chopin. Moniuszko is represented by three songs, one of which is a Polish translation of Goethe's ' Kennst du das Land? ' One of the two songs by Tchaikovsky, ' Moja pieszczotka,* has words which have been set by at least six other composers. Also included are settings of Mickiewicz's poems by Cui (the Russian composer who spent his youth in Poland), Loewe. Rimsky-Korsakov, and Paderewski.
