Tuwim in New York

Posted on Thursday, February 22, 2007

During my attempts to secure the copyright approval on Polish poet Julian Tuwim's texts for my song-cycle Piosenki, I had several email discussions (sometimes via my wife, sometimes in the best Polish I could muster myself) with Tuwim's daughter, who runs his foundation today. I sent her some extracts of my piece that we workshopped in New York last Novemeber, and how lovely it was to receive this note from her:

"Ciesze sie ze wiersze mojego ojca beda wykonywane z piekna muzyka w Nowym Yorku, gdzie mieszkal w czasie wojny i gdzie jego tworczosc znana byl tylko polskim emigrantom."

Or for the non-Polish speakers amongst you :

"I am happy that my fathers poems will be performed with beautiful music in New York, where he lived during the war, and where his work was known only amongst Polish emigrates."
