"Polskie Muzyczki": educational films on Polish composers

Polskie Muzyczki

The idea of ​​a new project "Polskie Muzyczki" ("Polish Women Musicians") is to create a series of educational films devoted to Polish composers, which will be posted on YouTube and Facebook. The premiere of the project will take place on1 August 2020 at 5.00 p.m.

The project was created in response to the needs of the audience participating in joint concerts of clarinetist Barbara Borowicz and pianist Anna Miernik, who promote Polish music and the achievements of Polish composers.

In times of uncertainty for culture, the winners of international competitions temporarily transferred some of their activities to the Internet. The artists want to pursue the idea of ​​"learning through play" –  their short film episodes will contain high-quality content presented in a light and pleasant form of a dialogue. Facts from the history of music will intertwine with funny anecdotes, which will make the materials accesible to an average audience and help to break the "artist-viewer" barrier. Each of the eight episodes will be devoted to a different Polish composer, including Piotr Rytel, Witold Friemann, Antoni Szałowski, Grzegorz Fitelberg, Marcel Chyrzyński, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki and Mikołaj Górecki. The composers themselves – Maciej Zimka, Ewa Fabiańska-Jelińska, Martyna Kosecka and Michał Papara – will take part in a few episodes. The aim of the project is to encourge listeners to participate in live concerts when it is fully possible.
