The programme of the 45th Karol Szymanowski Music Days taking place between the 24th and 31st of July in Zakopane will be dominated by the patron's music: in 2022 he would celebrate his 140th birthday.
Szymanowski's music is always present in the Festival programme, as well as the works of the composer's contemporaries. The programme of this year's Days will include the works of Szymanowski's peer, Romanian composer born a year earlier, George Enescu (1881). We will also hear works by Grażyna Bacewicz, Marcin Błażewicz, Sławomir Czarnecki, Jerzy Fitelberg, Witold Friemann, Wojciech Kilar, Szymon Laks, Krzysztof Penderecki and Mieczysław Wajnberg.
Co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage from the Culture Promotion Fund as part of the ‘Music’ and ‘Composers’ Commissions’ programmes, implemented by the National Institute of Music and Dance.
