On 20–23 April 2018, stu­dents and teach­ers of the Fry­deryk Chopin Uni­ver­si­ty of Music togeth­er with His Mag­nif­i­cence Rec­tor will par­tic­i­pate in the artis­tic event enti­tled “Con­certs of Pol­ish cham­ber music of the 20th and 21st cen­turies”, dur­ing which they will rep­re­sent Pol­ish music in Esto­nia. The under­tak­ing is co-financed by the Min­istry of Cul­ture and Nation­al Her­itage as part of the project “Pro­mo­tion of Pol­ish Cul­ture Abroad – Promis­so­ry Agree­ment 2018”.

It assumes con­duct­ing four con­certs of Pol­ish cham­ber music at the most promi­nent cul­tur­al cen­tres in Tallinn; two will be held at the Eston­ian Music Acad­e­my and The­atre, one at Tar­tu Col­lege of Music and one at the Tallinn Black­heads Hall. Among the teach­ers who will per­form dur­ing the con­certs are His Mag­nif­i­cence Rec­tor prof. Klaudiusz Baran, Vice-Rec­tor for Stu­dent and Teach­ing Affairs prof. Alek­sander Koś­ciów, Vice-Rec­tor for For­eign Affairs prof. Paweł Gus­nar, and more.

The con­certs will be sup­ple­ment­ed by lec­tures and work­shops, which will enable the lis­ten­ers and stu­dents from Esto­nia to have a clos­er look at con­tem­po­rary Pol­ish cham­ber music. It is worth men­tion­ing that the artis­tic event is held as one of the cel­e­bra­tions of 100 years of inde­pen­dence of Poland as well as Esto­nia. An accom­pa­ny­ing event will be the exhi­bi­tion enti­tled “Around the War­saw Autumn”, which will be organ­ised by the FCUM in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Pol­ish Com­posers’’ Union sup­port­ed by the Pol­ish Embassy in Esto­nia and the Eston­ian Acad­e­my of Music and The­atre in Tallinn.

The exhi­bi­tion will be devot­ed to the his­to­ry of the War­saw Autumn fes­ti­val which has had numer­ous Eston­ian artists among its par­tic­i­pants. The organ­i­sa­tion of such a high-lev­el exhi­bi­tion has been pos­si­ble thanks to the finan­cial sup­port of the Soci­ety of Authors and Com­posers ZAiKS.
