Katarzyna Popowa-Zydroń (piano), and a final concert performed by Maria Sławek (violin), Marcin Zdunik (cello), Anna Maria Staśkiewicz (violin) and Marcin Dońc (viola).

The Academy has long been heading towards expanding the didactic repertoire of Polish composers. On 12 October at 3 p.m., there will be a premiere of Kaleidoscope.
