„Romeo i Julia” – musical
www.romeoijulia.pl
The worlds’ premiere of the „Romeo and Juliet” musical on the basis of William Sheakspear play, has been performed on the 8th of October 2004 in „TORWAR” hall in Warsaw. Since then 33000 spectators have seen it. The tour around Poland is planned in the towns with large halls (e.g. „OLIWIA”, „SPODEK”). Extraordinary, uncommon and enormous show is expected. Its success is rated comparing to METRO musical, that became the artistic and sociologic phenomenon (1,5millon of spectators, 1200 performances, hundreds of fan clubs gathering young people). We will meet at the scene the well known names of actors and new talents that have been chosen among a few thousands of talented young people during numerous castings being organized in whole country. Modern adaptation of „ROMEO AND JULIET” musical is an artistic show with important public message. It’s a story about two young people’s love and loneliness. The situation and circumstances are changed during the Jozefowicz and Janusz Stoklosa show. But the conflict stays the same. Youthful, uncompromising love of two people, that cannot find the agreement with the adult’s world in the moment of great emotion’s birth, meets the ruthless of parents’ commercial world being completely absorbed with their own business.

The CD is available in Buffo’s shop. Price ~15 Euro.

„Piotrus Pan” music from the play for children with libretto of Jeremi Przybora, performed by Warsaw Music Theatre „Roma”
The record „Piotrus Pan” is the result of work of people in very different age. Ten-year old Tomek Kaczmarek – who sings the part of „Peter Pan”, forty-year old Janusz Stoklosa – the composer and the aged Jeremi Przybora – the author of libretto have all the same way of perceiving the world. It especially refers to the ability of living on the edge of dream and reality, to wondering at situations that seem to be obvious or to the selfishness that allows a mature artist have „a glance of a boy”. When I sing along with my seven-year old son, Kubus, the „Pirate song” I am happy that I was able to contribute to the record „Piotrus Pan”. (Janusz Józefowicz)

The record of musical „Metro” by
A. I M. Miklaszewscy, directed by Janusz Józefowicz.

The myth has been created in Poland that musical belongs to the commercialized culture of the West. Although the state patronage had enough funds, never there had been an attempt to create an original musical production. The poor substitute of the commercial theatre were to be propaganda parades, first May galas and rather rarely transmissions from the Fridrich Staadt Palace in Berlin. Art education in Poland trained artists for „great repertoire”, theatres – in 100 per cent subsidized by the state – realized their artistic ambitions not taking into account the expectations of the audience. If auditorium was empty – the audience would be brought from the nearby factories or military units. It was so simple! And we were dreaming about a musical. We -that were used to vagueness, to being all the same, to bureaucracy that killed even trivial things by the miles of grey corridors – we wanted a musical! And one day a producer, Wiktor Kubiak, appeared and said: „If you do not have performers they must be found and trained. If there are no schools they must be organized. If there is no tradition – it must be made.” But apart from money there must be dreams too.
(Janusz Józefowicz)

Soundtrack to film „Wszyscy Moi Bliscy”, directed by Matej Minac
„Wszyscy Moi Bliscy” is a Czech, Slovak and Polish co-production with the big contribution of the last one. Ours are not only the actors (Krzysztof Kolberger, Grazyna Wolszczak, Agnieszka Wagner), co-producers (among others Cezary Pazura, Olaf Lubaszenko), but the composer, too – well known to everyone (musical „Metro”, TV program „MDM”) Janusz Stoklosa. His music is original and his talent not widely used by Polish cinema. We are given here sixteen nicely presented themes out of which some (Jak szalony jest czas, Pojedzmy do rodzicow) are of great charm. Although Stoklosa does not discover any new lands in the area of film music, he shows here his great professionalism. Especially fascinating are musical miniatures (reminding a bit „Nino Rota Nareszcie w Domu” and „Rynek z Kataryniarzem”) and „pastel”, sleepy impressions. All of these beautifully played by Bratislava Symphonic Orchestra and well recorded in the Warsaw studio. The record is really worth listening.

Soundtrack to the third part of famous Polish series „Ekstradycja”, directed by Wojciech Wojcik.

J.Stoklosa – D.Giesing
„In 1993 I had a chance to work with J.Stoklosa for the first time. He then composed the music to my staging called „Zmierzch” by I.Babla and from that time on he has become irreplaceable in my work.
I do not know any other composer who, like Stoklosa, could have written music to different texts, enriching them, and at the same time could have conveyed the ideas of director in very personal and stimulating music scores.
What should theatre be like? – „the way to openness”. Janusz follows this way, and this is something that I admire.”
(Dieter Giesing)

Janusz Stokłosa
” Out of five plays that are on this silver record, the music to four has been composed in Vienna and Berlin, and only the one comes from Slowacki Theatre in Cracow.

In his compositions J.Stokosa is as typical as sensitive a child of our times. The mark of modern art is a great mixture of styles – the enormous and all-embracing eclectism. The brain of a composer is like a huge computer loaded with thousands of words, colours and sounds. And now it only depends on the talent and sensitivity of the composer what will be put into the score out of this gigantic „database”.

I especially like all the subtle, at times almost sentimental, Stoklosa’s compositions i.e. „Arie Lejb” or „Fortepian”.
