Video: Alex Hummingson on TV Łańcut
Pictured: A conversation with TV Łańcut on the palace theatre stage about my great grandfather and how Łańcut inspires me in my profession as a composer.
The theatre at the Lancut castle is the only palace theatre in Poland preserved to this day. Designed by Józef Henny and built in 1792 for Princess Izabela Lubomirska.
Special thanks to the Łańcut Palace staff, TV Łańcut, Miejski Dom Kultury w Łańcucie, and the Łańcut Palace director Mr. Wojtowicz.
Taking all the credit from my co-writer Anthony Berlin and splendid actor Sakke Qviström saving my tail on camera….
…… insisting on that we write a horse song instead of following hard-working director Carolinne Lidén‘s instructions (“Please tell us what we’re doing here today, Alex?“) ……
…… being a bit demanding with magnificent camera man Jonathan Scherzenlehner ….
…. the boys joining in on my impromptu à cappella version of TLC’s “No Scrub” between the takes….
……. and finally, unable to keep a straight face as it was all fantastically fun!
My sincerest apologies, sweet team!
Anyhow, I remain humbled, honoured and grateful.
