Description

The fundraising is for publishing the bi-language (English-Polish) book by Dr Michal Szostak being a collection of scientific and artistic research on the role of the instrument as a source of inspiration for an organist in the art of stylish improvisation and the historically oriented practice of performing symphonic organ music from the French cultural circle of the 2nd half of the 19th century.

The above-mentioned optics has been expanded to include phenomena focused around the theory of “aesthetic situation” (based on R. Ingarden’s phenomenology), concerning the perception of organ music. The considerations are illustrated with a rich collection of more than 450 photos, as well as recordings (CD included) made on the largest Polish organ in the basilica in Licheń Stary.
