Chamber music works for wind instruments plus strings, piano and voice in a wealth of musical contexts and masterful performances. This is the idea behind the Warsaw Winds + Festival – a new event on the cultural map of Warsaw that will take place from 28 November to 1 December 2019.
This musical venture will change the perception of wind instruments among a wide audience. Everyone will find something for themselves in the festival program – from the popular songs of Stanisław Moniuszko in new arrangements, through the classical repertoire for string quartet and wind quintet, the premiere works of young generation composers – Mikołaj Majkusiak and Paweł Pudło, to improvisations on early music themes by Bastarda Trio.
For the initiators of the Warsaw Winds + Festival – the Warsaw sextet Gruppo di Tempera – chamber music is not only the most important career path, but also the greatest passion. Their goal is to present chamber music at the highest world level, which they have made one of the festival's leitmotifs. This idea connects all this year's artists, including: Bastarda Trio, Lutosławski Quartet, the mentioned sextet Gruppo di Tempera, as well as singers Urszula Kryger and Szymon Komasa. The Festival will feature Polish music – classical and contemporary, popular and less known, juxtaposed with works from the world canon.
Co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage from the Culture Promotion Fund as part of the "Music" programme implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance.
Media patronage: Polish Music Information Centre POLMIC.
