ARTUR GOTZ SINGS FAVORITE CABARET SONGS
The first program of Kabaret Starszych Panów, whose authors were Jerzy Wasowski and Jeremi Przybora, was broadcast by television on October 16, 1958. The Kabaret's repertoire has been presented many times over the past half-century by many eminent artists and singers, which proves the absolute mastery of song lyrics and music, providing an endless inspiration for successive generations. Artur Gotz respects the original performances, but thanks to the use of electronic instruments, surprising arrangements and ravishing interpretations, the songs in his performance combine what is sentimental with what is close and current to people in the 21st century.
The program consists of great hits: Addio tomatoes, If you love, You are bathing already not for me, Ballad with a corpse, Riding Hood 62, Virgin Anastasia, Family, Spooky twist, Children get bored in the rain, The song is good for everything. The concert is also a unique opportunity to rediscover lesser-known songs. This extraordinary concert will surely provide impressions and emotions for both those who remember the performances of the Old Gentlemen's Cabaret and the younger generation.
The premiere of the album took place on Valentine's Day 2018, in Poznań, at Scena na Piękieta, and the Warsaw premiere two weeks later at the Studio Theater with the special participation of Mrs. Barbara Krafftówna. The media patronage over the album was taken by 7 stations of the Polish Radio (Kraków, Łódź, Poznań, Gdańsk, PiK, Rzeszów, Opole), the weekly "Przegląd", the magazines "Imperium Women" and "Law Business Quality", MTV24, and Planeta Kobiet.
