Błońska Alina

Alina Błońska (* 3. V.  1974 Cieszyn-) active composer, currently living and working in Madrid. A graduate of the composition department in the class of Grażyna Pstrokońska Nawratil in Wrocław. Her creative output includes solo, chamber and choral music.

“Through this music, which is particularly simple and personal, fertile with ideas and endowed with great power of expression, Błońska reveals to the listener the most inner, deeply hidden truth about the human condition. Thus, it allows the voices of the soul, nature and the world to speak in sound form, enabling us to take a decisive step towards our interior, to meet ourselves and thus participate in the eternal harmony of the universe. Endowed with a highly contemplative voice of extraordinary emotional intensity, reaching back to Poland, her native land, and to the Christian cultural heritage that connects this country with Spain (very well known to her as a Spanishist), Błońska invites us – through this música callada (” music permeated with silence”) – to listen to the quiet songs, to give shape to the flashes of inner sound and to discover them amidst the darkness on our spiritual path, which constantly opens to hope.”
