The FCUM Inter­de­part­men­tal Chair of Cham­ber Music links the activ­i­ties of the Chair of Piano Cham­ber Music, the dif­fer­ent instru­men­tal chairs and the Chair of Vocal Stud­ies with respect to the ren­der­ing of cham­ber music. The chair is made up of those ped­a­gogues who are in charge of cham­ber ensem­bles.

The didac­tic and artis­tic ini­tia­tives of the Chair of Piano Cham­ber Music and the var­i­ous Chairs shape the work and activ­i­ty of the FCUM cham­ber ensem­bles — from duets, trios and quar­tets to instru­men­tal and instru­men­tal-vocal ensem­bles count­ing over a dozen mem­bers.

In the 1999/2000 aca­d­e­m­ic year we wish to organ­ise a num­ber of con­certs of the var­i­ous ensem­bles in our Chair, a string quar­tet and piano trio work­shop con­duct­ed by our dis­tin­guished ped­a­gogues. We also wish to begin to pre­pare for soirées of Pol­ish music and Mozart and Beethoven’s string quar­tets in prepa­ra­tion for the Inter­na­tion­al Cham­ber Music Com­pe­ti­tion in Łódź (2001) and Gdańsk (2003). Our Chair also super­vis­es pri­ma­ry and sec­ondary music schools.

The two most recent heads of the Chair of Cham­ber Music were Pro­fes­sor Roman Siwek, Pro­fes­sor Paweł Łosakiewicz and Pro­fes­sor Marek Szwarc. Com­menc­ing from the aca­d­e­m­ic year 2016/2020 the Chair will be head­ed by Pro­fes­sor Ryszard Duź.
