5th "TRZY-CZTE-RY. Contexts. Contrasts. Confrontations" Music Festival


The Przypływ Kultury Foundation and artistic director Maciej Grzybowski invite you to the 5th "TRZY-CZTE-RY. Contexts. Contrasts. Confrontations" Music Festival, composed of 13 concerts broadcast live on the Internet between 3 and 26 July 2020.

"TRZY-CZTE-RY. Contexts. Contrasts. Confrontations" Music Festival is a unique event that combines elements of timelessness and contemporaneity. Presented works are sometimes contrasted with each other, but the main idea is to confront listeners with new artistic visions and open their perception to new contexts.

This year's Festival is dedicated to one of the greatest musical geniuses, Ludwig van Beethoven, whose 250th birth anniversary falls in 2020. We will also hear works by 20th-century composers, Béla Bartók and Anton Webern, whose 75th death anniversaries fall the same year. Sinfonia Varsovia will perform with well-known Polish violinist Jakub Jakowicz.

The real confrontations will be four piano recitals by top Polish young pianists, inluding Aleksandra Świgut, the 1st prize winner in the International Chopin Piano Competition on Historical Instruments (2018), and Jan Krzysztof Broja. The festival will also feature violilnist Anna Maria Staśkiewicz, winner of the 13th Henryk Wieniawski International Competition for Young Violinists (2006), as well as leading Polish string quartets and AUKSO chamber orchestra conducted by Marek Moś. The last-mentioned will present works by such Polish composers as Fryderyk Chopin, Karol Szymanowski, Mieczysław Weinberg, Krzysztof Penderecki, Andrzej Panufnik, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, Hanna Kulenty, Paweł Szymański, Cezary Duchnowski and Andrzej Karałow.

The project was co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage from the Culture Promotion Fund under the "Music" programme run by the Institute of Music and Dance.
