The Festival of Polish Music
The festival has been organised since 2005 by the Polish Music Association, established by a group of musicologists, culture managers and music lovers.
The essence of the festival is not only to present valuable works by Polish composers created from the Middle Ages to the present day, but also to confront them with world music and show them in various contexts. The organisers also aim to stimulate compositional creativity by commissioning and premiering contemporary musical works.
So far, the stars of the festival have been pianists Ivo Pogorelich and Nicolai Khozyainov, world-famous violinist Nigel Kennedy, as well as: Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, London Sinfonietta, Elżbieta Chojnacka, Akiko Suwanai, Piers Lane, Peter Jablonski, Jonathan Plowright, Grigory Żyslin and many others. Prominent personalities of the Polish music scene also performed: Krzysztof Penderecki, Agnieszka Duczmal, Jerzy Maksymiuk. The festival also hosted outstanding composers: Wojciech Kilar, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, Paweł Mykietyn.
