As Bartłomiej Kominek, artistic director of the Festival, points out: "This year's 5th edition of the Duettissimo Festival, due to the epidemic threat, is held in a limited form. This year, instead of 19 concerts, workshops and courses, there will be 7 events. As artistic life in concert halls has almost completely died down, Duettissimo will also hit the internet. From 1 June, you will be able to hear all this year's performers on the website www.amuz.krakow.pl/akademiawsieci and on the Festival's YouTube channel. Among them: Lutosławski Piano Duo, Chopin Piano Duo, Novi Piano Duo, Maciej Pikulski and Lech Napierała, and others.
The programme of the 5th Duettissimo is extremely interesting. Apart from outstanding and well-known works for piano duo by Bach, Mozart, Debussy and Lutosławski, you will be able to hear equally beautiful, although less known and rarely performed pieces. We will hear works by Gershwin, Zarębski, and Johannes Brahms' Liebeslieder performed in the Redoubt Rooms of the Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera. The icing on the cake will be the Concerto for two pianos by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, performed at the Krakow Philharmonic by Michał Dziad and Agnieszka Przemyk-Bryła with the Symphony Orchestra of the Krzysztof Penderecki Academy of Music in Krakow."
