Chamber music concerts of the organizers and lecturers of the 7th International Cello Academy – members of the Polish Cello Quartet – will be held on 19-24 July 2020 in the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Nysa, the National Forum of Music in Wrocław and in the courtyard of the Bishop's Court in Nysa.
Members of the Polish Cello Quartet, graduates of Polish and foreign Academies, have come up with a new proposal of music courses. As a cello group, they are willing to share their knowledge and experience with all the young musicians who wish to develop their talents and skills. The International Cello Academy (ICA) has the form of music workshops for students of second level Music Schools preparing for any entrance exams to Music Academies and for those who already are Music Academy students. The main idea behind the project, is to give young musicians an opportunity to work with distinguished foreign professors as well as the members of the Polish Cello Quartet, which is made up of outstanding, young Polish cellists. ICA aims at promoting playing chamber cello music among young artists.
By promoting this kind of music in Poland, the Polish Cello Quartet wishes to show the young cello musicians the richness of the cello chamber music and encourage them to reach more frequently for this unique, although not easy, chamber music literature. During the concerts we will hear works by Fryderyk Chopin, Karol Szymanowski, Ludomir Różycki, Witold Szalonek, Artur Zagajewski, as well as jazz arrangements of popular melodies and original compositions written by the performers.
Co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage from the Culture Promotion Fund under the "Music" programme operated by the Institute of Music and Dance.
