Concert of the 6th International Cello Academy celebrating the 70th birth anniversary and 50th anniversary of work of Piotr Moss will take place in the National Forum of Music in Wrocław on 21 July 2019 at 6:00 p.m.

International Cello Academy (ICA) is one of the few events in Europe directed at cellists from around the world. As part of ICA, seven concerts are organized with a very wide repertoire – from Baroque to jazz and contemporary music. During the workshops, the Cello Academy Orchestra comprising a few dozen musicians is formed, involving all participants, lecturers and guests of the ICA. This year, this unique ensemble of cellists will perform at a special concert at the National Forum of Music in Wrocław.

The Cello Academy Orchestra and the Octet of lecturers of the International Cello Academy will perform under the baton of Piotr Moss, who celebrates this year 70th birthday and the 50th anniversary of artistic work. The musicians will present works by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Giovanni Sollimy, and above all Piotr Moss himself, including the wold premiere of Suite Elegiaque for cello octet, commissioned by the International Cello Academy.

The founder and organiser of the International Cello Academy is the Polish Cello Quartet bringing together prominent Polish cellists: Tomasz Daroch, Krzysztof Karpeta, Adam Krzeszowiec and Wojciech Fudala.
