Concert of Nicolao Copernico Dedicatum
“Stars that are stuck somewhere in the distant sky. Illuminating the twilight of the Earth, they awaken the imagination of dreamers who want their spirit to spread its wings and ascended to the heavenly realm of peace.”
Such a mystical musical evening took place not by accident, as May 20th was the 480th anniversary of the death of Nicolaus Copernicus. The experience was provided by the Polish Chamber Choir Schola Cantorum Gedanensis under the direction of Dr. Jan Łukaszewski, in a unique concert “Nicolao Copernico Dedicatum”.
– “The recently restored castle church is used for museum purposes and musical events. We dream that this interior will resound with music and singing, because that’s how it was until the 19th century. Liturgical music resounded here first thanks to the Teutonic Knights, and then to the Jesuits. We want to maintain this sublime character of the interior, so that it speaks with music and singing, because the 20th century is the time of silence of this place, and in 1945 it was even destroyed. Today’s concert is therefore a touching moment for us, when the castle church spoke to us again.” – said PhD. Janusz Trupinda, director of the Castle Museum in Malbork, during the opening of the concert.
The concert commemorating Nicolaus Copernicus on the 550th anniversary of his birth was financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
