From 14 July to 11 August 2018, piano recitals will take place in Katowice as part of a new local initiative – Piano Tężnia Festival.
The opening of a graduation tower in Zadole Park in April this year became an inspiration for the foundation of Piano Tężnia Festival. The originator of the construction of the object itself, which was supported by as many as 15,000 inhabitants within the participatory budgeting, was a resident of Ligota Adam Łęski. In July and August, this unique place will attract people not only by its microclimate, but also by piano music performed by Silesian pianists. Piotr Banasik, Zbigniew Raubo, Tymoteusz Bies, Joanna Domańska and Magdalena Lisak will play the Steinway pianos rented especially for the recitals.
Outstanding pianists and a rich repertoire of their performances, including compositions by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Fryderyk Chopin, Franz Schubert, Ignacy Jan Paderewski, Karol Szymanowski, Mieczysław Karłowicz, as well as expert comments given by well-known music theoreticians from Katowice will undoubtedly satisfy demanding music lovers.
Admission to all concerts in free.
