The 6th edition of the "Polish Music in Warmia and Żuławy" Festival will take place on 5-7 July 2019. The Elbląg Chamber Orchestra will give concert of Polish music in the Gothic churches of the region.
The festival will contribute to the celebration of the 200th birth anniversary of Stanisław Moniuszko, the father of Polish opera. As one of the Polish critics stated, "Moniuszko's work is a much colorful musical network, full of contrasts and paradoxes". This "network" covers not only the noble landscapes of the Haunted Manor, but also streets of medieval India from the opera Paria. The programme of the Festival will also include music of the outstanding violinist and composer Grażyna Bacewicz.
The Elbląg Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Marek Moś will perform with the invited soloists: Tomasz Mądzielewski, Maciej Magnuski, Mateusz Mosia, Mateusz Kołakowski, and Katarzyna Moś – Polish representative during the 62nd Eurovision Song Contest.
The project is co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage from the Culture Promotion Fund under the "Moniuszko 2019 – Promesa" programme, implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance. The concert is held under the patronage of the PWM Edition as part of the TUTTI.pl project promoting the performances of Polish music.
Media patronage: Polish Music Information Centre POLMIC.
