Description:
Canzon de'baci is a turning point in my creative work. For a long time there appeared some kind of dichotomy in it - my interest in composition completely didn’t meet my passions as a countertenor, specializing in baroque singing. It was during Canzon de'baci when I realized that this couldn't go on.  I started to look for my identity, wondering what is most important for me, to seek common ground for the functioning of these two worlds. I tried to make Canzon de’baci extremely baroque, but not in an obvious way. I'm not interested neither in stylizations nor toying with the conventions. My intention is to create music that inherits modernist avant-garde idioms built on a repertoire of gestures performing analogous functions to the musical gestures of the Baroque era. My music has to be a baroque one, not an imitation of it. The basis of work is one of the most popular forms of Baroque - ciaccona. I hid the ciaccona melody not in the bass, but in high voice. Another very important part of my job is distortion, the melody is played by the piano on extreme harmonic positions. I wanted to build a structure a bit like Lego: to build a superstructure on substructure. – Andrzej Kwieciński of his work.
