The 9th Emanacje Festival will be held on 4 July – 29 August 2021 at the Krzysztof Penderecki European Centre for Music in Lusławice. The three strands of this year's edition, with works performed by the outstanding artists invited to participate in the Festival, will create extraordinary contexts and interesting repertoire compilations.
The Amadeus Chamber Orchestra of Polish Radio under the baton of Agnieszka Duczmal and the Aukso Orchestra conducted by Marek Moś will inaugurate the Festival. The main events of this year's edition will be performed by leading Polish string orchestras, among others, the New Music Orchestra, Primuz Chamber Orchestra and Penderecki Youth Orchestra. We will hear Krzysztof Penderecki's compositions alongside works by Grażyna Bacewicz, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, Wojciech Kilar, Eugeniusz Knapik, Andrzej Krzanowski, Aleksander Lasoń, Wojciech Lemański, Piotr Moss, and Karol Szymanowski.
The second axis of the festival consists of piano recitals of young, outstanding Polish pianists – participants of the qualifying rounds of the 18th International Chopin Piano Competition. The list of performers includes Adam Kałduński, Zuzanna Pietrzak, Piotr Aleksewicz, Andrzej Wierciński, Jakub Kuszlik, Aleksandra Świgut and Marcin Wieczorek. The festival programme will be complemented by interesting accompanying events of a slightly "lighter" nature: jazz concerts as part of the Seifert Jazz Days, a recital by Adam Makowicz, and a concert by participants of Adam Sztaba's workshops.
The Festival is also a good occasion to visit a permanent multimedia exhibition "Krzysztof Penderecki – the heritage of Polish music of the 20th and 21st centuries" and take a walk in the famous Penderecki's Arboretum.
