Polska Travels: Sweden – Swedish folk music for a baroque orchestra | KoncertKirken, Köpenhamn

25 maj 2018 20:00 | Konsert

"Polska" is not simply an adjective to define something coming from Poland: it is also the name of the arguably most popular form of folk dance in Scandinavia! Soon after its central European Renaissance origin, its peculiar history brought it to Sweden where it peacefully conquered the hearts and dancing feet of nobles and peasants alike.
Polskas are also the protagonists of Krishna Nagaraja's doctoral artistic research, whose second concert hereby revisits melodies from old Swedish collections as well as traditional variants from Western Sweden.
