Works by the composer, organist, conductor and organizer of the musical life Feliks Nowowiejski (1877–1946) are relatively rarely performed today, which is why they are little known to a wider audience. Associated with Poznań, the composer of the famous "Rota", among various genre and highly skilled creative works, also left behind a unique Oratorio for solo voices, choir, orchestra and organ, Op. 3 to the libretto by Theobald Rehbaum. The work "Die Heimkehr des Verlorenen Sohnes" ("The Return of the Prodigal Son”) was composed in 1901, during Nowowiejski's studies in Berlin under the supervision of the outstanding composer and conductor Max Bruch. The world premiere of the work took place only in 1993 (the composer himself had never heard the entire work) and since then one of the first oratorios of Polish music has not been performed. Thanks to the DUX label, the recording of the oratorio concert "The Return of the Prodigal Son" in the original language version is available to listeners, recorded by the Symphony Orchestra of the Warmian-Masurian Philharmonic.
