The competition's programme formula presents harpsichord literature in two trends: old (the obligatory piece by J. S. Bach) and new. The primary goal of the project is to popularize the performance of harpsichord music of the 20th and 21st centuries, including works by Polish composers (mandatory repertoire), and instruments - historical and contemporary.
