Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Harnasie, Op. 55, is a ballet-pantomime written by the Polish composer Karol Szymanowski, between 1923-1931, to a libretto by Jerzy Rytard and his wife and Jaros aw Iwaszkiewicz, the librettist of Symanowski's opera, King Roger. The story is set in the Tatra mountains, and is based in the legend of the abduction of a bride by the robber Harn?'s and his band (the 'Harnasie' of the title). Szymanowski first visited Zakopane in the Tatras in 1921, and studied the music and folklore of the Goral people. The score makes extensive use of folk-song and employs a choir with tenor solo.show more
