The title: “Aletheia” can be translated from Ancient Greek as truth, disclosure, unclosedness, or unconcealedness, understood as the revealing of what has been hidden. The ancient concept of “aletheia” was brought back by Martin Heidegger in the mid 20-century. I was deeply drawn to his philosophy at the time I composed this piece.
Aletheia was the very first piece I wrote right after graduating with a Composition degree from the Academy of Music in Kraków, Poland, and the last one I composed in Poland, before moving to the United States.
Today I view this piece almost as a soundtrack to a film that has never been made. The musical language and artistic means seem quite simplified compared to my other compositions. Yet what may seem as a step backwards became the first step in the quest for my own individual artistic path.
