  • On Wednesday, May the 13th, the „Lutnia” („Lute”) chamber hosted the last concerts in the cycle „Spotkania z Muzyką” („Meetings with Music”), organized by the citizens of Zgierz, the Town Hall and the Academy of Music in Łódź. The program involved only vocal pieces: the songs of 19th century composers and the most beautiful arias from operas, operettas and musicals.  Among the performers were: the Prorector of the Academy, Bogusław Pikała, and Julia Laskowska, both visiting Zgierz for the second time (accompaniment), Magdalena Cieślar (soprano) and Andrzej Niemirowicz (baritone). The atmosphere was exceptional, and both the audience and musicians enjoyed themselves greatly. After over an hour, the meeting’s culmination was the invitation for the audience to join the musicians in singing the chorus for the traditional Jewish song „Tumbalalaika” and the duet of Hanna and Daniłła „Love Unspoken” from the operetta „The Merry Widow” (chosen for the encore). Although the third season of „Meetings with Music” in Zgierz begins in November, the organizers are already inviting all music lovers to join.

  • (…) To categorize this singer’s voice in shorthand is positively impossible. She possesses a lyrical soprano with a beautiful, crystal-clear sound and rich timbre. An exceptional intuition and imagination bore fruit in the form of a unique repertoire, from baroque pieces (Händel) through the exquisite works of Mozart, the bel canto style (Bellini, Donizetti) until the operas of Puccini. A distint, though incredibly important chapter of this talented singer’s musical journey is chamber music, which she performs with great respect – greatly appreciating the romantic lyrics from Brahms, Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff . Through the afore-mentioned repertoire, she manages to fully express her sensitivity. Her voice shimmers with the full richness of its shades and dynamic palette (from the subtlest pianissimo with a warm, velvet rich timbre, to the triumphant forte at full volume). The next area of her artistic exploration is Mozart. She possesses an incredible intuition for aesthetics, which is crucial with the great composer’s works. Oratorios and cantatas also play a major part in Magdalena Cieślar’s vocal arsenal (the Passions of J. S. Bach, the Requiem and Coronation Mass by W. A. Mozart, Ein Deutsches Requiem by J. Brahms, Stabar Mater by G. B. Pergolesi, Requiem by G. Faurè are only a handful of choice picks from her repertoire). She is an amazingly versatile singer, with a great sense of aesthetics, allowing her to maintain her lyrical performance under control – a coveted skill among performers with such a wide repertoire – while not rejecting modern musical pieces, viewing them as another area open to her artistic exploration.

    Dariusz Grabowski, the Kraków Philharmonic – Kraków, 2009

  • (…) Magdalena Cieślar is an intelligent, sensitive and very musical person. We performed on many concerts together, singing songs and arias of composers from past ages (I accompanied her on the harpsichord). As a harpsichordist I had the opportunity to perform basso continuo during the Passions and Cantatas of J. S. Bach while Mrs. Magdalena sang the vocal parts. The unique character of her voice suits the style of music from past ages. Her voice is full of warmth and really brings out the emotions ingrained in each song during her performances (…).

  • In our city, Bełchatów, we joyously celebrated the 500th anniversary of John Kalvin’s birth.

  • An hour of amazement and agitation. That’s how you can sum up the chamber concert held on Sunday, September 11th, in the Church of the Saviour. That night, two excellent artists performed, Magdalena Hudzieczek-Cieślar (soprano) and Anastazja Wilczkowska (piano). This wasn’t their first performance in Tomaszów Mazowiecki, nor the last, hopefully. The combination of the expressive singer’s wonderful soprano and the pianist’s virtuoso play built a fantastic concert atmosphere. This time the repertoire included the most famous compositions of Bach, Mozart, Schumann, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Karłowicz and others. Every piece met with an applause, and the entire performance was rewarded with a standing applause. At the end, Mrs. Magdalena prepared a musical surprise. To commemorate the fourth anniversary of the WTC collapse, she sang a hit popular both in the States and here in Poland, „Amazing Grace”. She couldn’t have chosen better. An exceptionally touching a capella performance moved all listeners …

The numerous listeners absorbed it enthralled, then rewarded the artists with a tumultuous standing applause. Inspired by such a response, the excellent performers agreed to play and sing a fragment of the Mass for the encore. It was a wonderful evening. Time spent listening to Mozart’s music was not only a moment saved in time, but a gifted moment of beauty and reflection.
