METROPOLIS

metropolis1Metropolis is the title of the German science fiction film, whose script was written by expressionist scriptwriter and director Fritz Lang, and writer and scriptwriter Thea von Harbou. The film presents a city divided into two social groups: intellectual and workers. The painting was created in 1926 and caused quite a stir in Germany's cultural life. It was so drastic and literal that censorship forced the removal of some scenes. Interestingly, the tape with this film work was lost, and was not found in Buenos Aires until 2002. The Metropolis projection will be accompanied by a live music track. It will be performed by: the icon of Polish electronic music Władysław "Gudonis" Komendarek and violist Krzysztof Komendarek-Tymendorf.

Bravo! First-class playing and a wonderfully varied solo viola album!

„ReVIOLAtion” review - Magazine Presto

quota
The album, which constitutes the artist’s debut (sic!), is for explorers and connoisseurs who will appreciate the idea inherent in it: the viola is a versatile instrument that will take on the concept of music in any times and will do so successfully. The virtuosity of the violin and the warmth of the cello intertwined in one instrument under Krzysztof Tymendorf’s fingers turn into a story of timeless beauty, which is reflected in the perverse sequence positioning the shortest and at the same time oldest composition by H. Vieuxtemps between Weinberg and Bacewicz.

„ReVIOLAtion” review - pizzicato.lu | Pizzicato Award

quotaReVIOLAtion; Fyodor Druzhinin: Sonate für Viola solo; Mieczyslaw Weinberg: Sonate für Viola solo Nr. 3; Henry Vieuxtemps: Capriccio Hommage a Paganini für Viola solo op. 55; Grazyna Bacewicz: Polish Capriccio für Viola solo; Krzysztof Komendarek-Tymendorf, Viola; 1 CD Naxos 8.551432; Aufnahme 03/2017; Veröffentlichung 27/11/2020 (50'58) – Rezension von Uwe Krusch

Fjodor Druzhinin war ein russischer Bratschist, Komponist und Musiklehrer im Umfeld von Shostakovich und Weinberg. Shostakovich schrieb seine Bratschensonate für ihn. Einer seiner Schüler war Yuri Bashmet. Inzwischen ist ein weiterer aus dem Umfeld, Mieczyslaw Weinberg, bekannter geworden. Beide haben diverse Werke für die Bratsche geschrieben, so letzterer vier Sonaten, Druzhinin nur eine. Zwei Sonaten, die von Druzhinin und von Weinberg die dritte mit 30 Minuten Spieldauer, machen eigentlich diese Einspielung aus. Dazu gibt es noch zwei kurze Sätze.
Krzysztof Komendarek-Tymendorf ist ein jüngerer Bratschist aus Polen, der hier seine beeindruckende Ersteinspielung vorlegt.
Die Aufnahme hat sein Spiel sehr klangvoll eingefangen, aber die Grenzen des Geschmacks nicht überschritten, so dass es eben voll tönt, aber weder dem Hörer auf die Nerven geht noch unnötig hallt. Tymendorf stellt seine Aufnahme unter das Motto ReVIOLAtion, was wohl so viel wie Wiederherstellung oder vielleicht auch Versöhnung bedeuten mag. Er lässt keine Schwächen oder Probleme erkennen, die ihm diese mit technischen Schwierigkeiten gespickten Werke bieten. Vielmehr lässt er sich in seinem kraftvoll eleganten, immer noblen Spiel davon nicht beeindrucken und kann so die Interpretationen der Werke mühelos in gestalterische Bahnen lenken. Dadurch gelingt es, die Stimme der Viola zu betonen, beinahe virtuos wie die Violine, rund im Klang wie ein Cello.

Fyodor Druzhinin was a Russian violist, composer and music teacher in the circle of Shostakovich and Weinberg. Shostakovich wrote his viola sonata for him. One of his pupils was Yuri Bashmet. In the meantime, another of his circle, Mieczyslaw Weinberg, has also become better known. Both wrote various works for the viola, the latter four sonatas, Druzhinin only one. Two sonatas, the one by Druzhinin and Weinberg’s third with a playing time of 30 minutes, actually make up this recording. In addition, there are two short movements.
Krzysztof Komendarek-Tymendorf is a younger violist from Poland who presents his impressive first recording here. The recording has captured his playing very sonorously, but also tastefully, so that it sounds just full, but neither gets on the listener’s nerves nor reverberates unnecessarily. Tymendorf places his recording under the motto ReVIOLAtion, which may well mean restoration or perhaps reconciliation, does not initially reveal any weaknesses or problems in these works peppered with technical difficulties. On the contrary, in his powerfully elegant, always noble playing, he does not allow himself to be impressed by the technical challenges and can thus effortlessly steer the interpretations of the works into creative paths. This enables him to play the viola almost as virtuosic as a violin, round in sound like a cello.

Mieczysław Weinberg (1919-1996) *Sonata na altówkę solo nr 3 op.135 (1982)* – Muzyka Współczesna odc.75

quotaThe mastery of performance allowing to achieve this wonderful sound of the viola made me happy.
‘You have no idea how important it is to me that my music was played so beautifully by a Pole. And when I heard Grażyna Bacewicz’s beautiful caprice at the end of the album, my longing for my homeland and the beauty of the performance prompted me to lock myself in the library alone with my music and memories.’
‘Don't delude yourself, please, that my sonata is a piece for just anyone. But if you love the viola, remember this name – Krzysztof Komendarek-Tymendorf – and closely follow every new recording he releases.’
I wanted to put away the record by this new viola genius, but Weinberg held my hand and said:
‘I can lend it to you. Listen to it, please, a few times. In solitude, that’s a must. And if you want to keep it permanently, I will be extremely happy. I have one more favor to ask of you – if we ever meet again, please call me by my Polish name. It’s Mietek...’

albrecht“A Polish rising viola star of the new generation! Krzysztof Komendarek-Tymendorf is a truly charismatic
and unique viola player of his generation. Fully mature as an artist, he demonstrates excellent technique
of both the right and the left hand; he has mastered uniform sound throughout the scale and can
modulate it at will thus differentiating its timbre depending on the narrative of a given piece. His
performance is characterized by great expression, musicality, very good technique, rich sound, great
range of dynamics and articulation. When played by him, music acquires softness and character through
excellent intonation, which is rhythmically perfect. He delivers his renditions consciously and gives
individual meanings to each performed piece.
To undertake the recording of solo sonatas by Fyodor Druzhinin and Mieczysław Weinberg, one must
have a very good double-stop, chord-playing technique. These works demand the highest level of
performance and the execution of these sonatas meets the very standard. Polish Capriccio by Grażyna
Bacewicz and Capriccio by Henri Vieuxtemps are short pieces in which Krzysztof Komendarek-Tymendorf presented great sense of music and rich volume of sound.”
