Hearts on bicycles : lyrics by Ewa Lipska
It is a record for bad weather, despondency, disbelief in oneself and any griefs. When the world seems to be horrible, get seated and listen to Anna Szalapak. You will realize that everything may be beautiful and optimistic But we are still alive, Let`s be lucky for a while, Hearts on bicycles are such lovely songs full of wisdom. The remaining ones are also like these.
Let's praise Ewa Lipska for her idea. She presented Anna Szalapak with three poems and suggested that they should become lyrics. Andrzej Zarycki wrote the music. The outcome was so good that new poems were written soon. Not only Andrzej Zarycki but also Seweryn Krajewski and Andrzej Sikorowski composed music.
Eleven new songs about life, the passing of time and love were the result. On St. Valentine's Day 2003 they were played on the Concert Studio of the Polish Radio Station named after Witold Lutoslawski. The concert was really enjoyable. There was a lot of applause, encore calls and suggestions for recording these poems and their lovely music. And here it is. It is vital, that begin such a great poetess. Ewa Lipska does not despise songs and that nowadays there is Anna Szalapak who sings so beautifully and there are Sikorowski, Krajewski, Zarycki who have so much talent, energy and zeal.
