The music repertoire will include compositions celebrating the life and achievements of Nicolaus Copernicus, composed especially for the anniversary of his birth, works expressing admiration for the incomprehensible life of galaxies, full of secrets, and timeless pieces focusing on the inner universe of human emotionality.
