Fuga Interna (begin) (2011) – a piece for piano and fixed sound
Written by Katharine Norman

Learning, making mistakes, making a progress and finally losing the memory. Using her own experience of being taught by her mother, Norman creates a 10 minute composition based on musical material of J.S. Bach’s Fugue in B minor from Book I WTC. Piano and electronics create coherent whole, passing the musical material to each other, until recognising those two is ”no longer black or white”. Long, lasting chords are often interrupted by short or strongly played notes which break the constant and meditative nature of the piece. A process of learning presented in Fuga, even if based on composer’s memories, reminds me of my own way that I went through. Reminds me of the moment when our mentors pass away, leaving us with the memories and experience.

Natalia Górecka (born 2001) – young accomplished pianist specialised in performing contemporary music. Experienced in working as a soloist and collaborative artist. Górecka performs at international festivals (since 2021 annually performs at Poznań Musical Spring International Contemporary Music Festival) and music conferences (in 2023 she worked for SoundsNow as a international conference coordinator). Regularly takes part in recording sessions. In the area of her musical interests, special emphasis is placed on contemporary music such as electronic and experimental music, as well as piano classic of the 20th century. The pianist actively participates in concert life, conducting artistic activity, giving solo recitals. For Górecka in her activity and career the most important is broadening her horizons and extending the perceptions of contemporary piano music. She is a master’s student at F. Nowowiejski Academy of Music in Bydgoszcz.
