Performance of TROP in Warsaw, Poland

On 29 September 2012, Agnieszka Kaćma, flute and Łukasz Mosur, organ, gave a performance of Trop (Polish for ‘track’ or ‘scent’, but also French for ‘too much’) at The Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, Poland.

The work was premièred in 2011 by its dedicatees, Agnieszka Kaćma and Jarosław Malanowicz. Based on a simple idea of superimposing a highly ornamental flute line on a relatively plain, slowly developing organ part, the piece combines relentless neo-expressionistic lyricism (flute) with deliberately subdued drama (organ) in order to create emotional ambiguity and a sense of anxiety.
