"Turn on the duo" is a series of innovative concerts and online meetings performed by Lutosławski Piano Duo. The project involves online presentation of seven concerts of the duo which will be released periodically on Facebook beetwen 19-25 October 2020.
The highest quality of perfomance, an appropriate selection of repertoire for 4 hands and for 2 pianos (including Chopin, Lutosławski, Górecki, Sikorski, Reich, Ravel, Debussy), the combination of music with the artists' talk about their work, as well as the modern form of recordings make the project valuable not only in artistic, but also in educational terms. It is a response to the expectations of listeners who want to take a closer look at the musicians while playing, but also while working on the repertoire. Special camera shots make it possible.
Emilia Karolina Sitarz and Bartłomiej Wąsik, who has performed as Lutosławski Piano Duo for over 20 years and also play in the Kwadrofonik quartet, are versatile pianists who successfully find themselves in classical, folk and contemporary music. Each meeting will be recorded in a studio on several cameras, and then made available online for free on the project website. The visual implementation of the project is managed by TVP Kultura's journalist Eliza Orzechowska, who has experience in broadcasting the Chopin Piano Competitions, the Classic Stage of TVP Kultura or the premieres of the Teatr Wielki – National Opera.
