Katowice | Silesian Tribune of Composers

Śląska Trybuna Kompozytorów

The next edition of the "Silesian Composers' Tribune" festival will take place in Katowice on 4-15 November 2019.

The "Silesian Composers' Tribune" is a Katowice festival with a long, over 40-year tradition and great importance for the Silesian music culture. It aims to present the significant achievements of Silesian musicians and to familiarize the audience with the work of outstanding 20th- and 21st-century music composers. This year's edition includes diverse events taking place at the Katowice Academy of Music, the M. Karłowicz State Music School and the Academy of Fine Arts.

The inauguration concert will premiere Wojciech Stępień's chamber opera The Black Mirrow – a mystery in 12 scenes with a prologue and epilogue, which was written as part of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage "Composing Commissions" programme, implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance. On 12 November we will listen to another work created within the programme – Przemysław Szczotka's Dissociatio performed by Piotr and Agnieszka Kopińscy. The festival will also feature world premieres of works by Sonia Brauhoff, Przemysław Scheller, Piotr Ceglarek and Tomasz Bauc as well as meetings with composers and a lecture by PhD Przemysław Scheller Xenharmonia – irregular temperaments on systems that go beyond the commonly used twelve-tone equal temperament.

Free admission to all events!
