25th Portraits of Composers at the Mazovia Institute of Culture (MIK)
7 December 2015 (Monday) - 8 December 2015, 6:00 pm
Mazowiecki Instytut Kultury, ul. Elektoralna 12 (map)
free admission

Portraits of Composers is an event organised by the Union of Polish Composers (ZKP) since 1988. Initially the concerts were held at Wanda Warska and Andrzej Kurylewicz’s Piwnica Artystyczna venue, then at Polskie Wydawnictwo Muzyczne publishing house in Fredry Street in Warsaw, and since a few years ago – at the Mazovia Institute of Culture, the series’ co-organiser.

This year’s Portraits of Composers festival will present the chamber output of two contemporary Polish composers. On the first day we will hear works by Piotr Komorowski, and on the second day – music by Sławomir Zamuszko. By presenting new and ambitious music, the festival responds to the intellectual curiosity of different audience generations. The composers are present at the concerts, and the possibility of direct contact with them makes them and their oeuvre more approachable. The programme is usually arranged so as to present works typical for a given composer. The performers are both leading Polish artists and talented musicians of the youngest generation, prize-winners of performance competitions.
