Final Concert of the 5th "TRZY-CZTE-RY. Contexts. Contrasts. Confrontations" Music Festival


The final concert of the 5th "TRZY-CZTE-RY. Contexts. Contrasts. Confrontations" Music Festival will take place on 26 July 2020 at 7:00 p.m. and will be broadcast live on the Internet.

"TRZY-CZTE-RY. Contexts. Contrasts. Confrontations" is a unique event that combines elements of timelessness and contemporaneity. Presented works are sometimes contrasted with each other, but the main idea is to confront listeners with new artistic visions and new contexts. This year's edition featured music by such Polish composers as Karol Szymanowski, Mieczysław Wajnberg, Krzysztof Penderecki, Andrzej Panufnik, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, Hanna Kulenty, Paweł Szymański, Cezary Duchnowski and Andrzej Karałow.

During the final concert Jan Krzysztof Broja, a laureate of the international piano competitions in Hanau (1989), Brunswick (1991), Bucharest (1995), Vilnius (1999) and Pasadena – Los Angeles (2002), will perform works by Fryderyk Chopin and Ludwig van Beethoven, to which the fifth edition of the Festival is devoted. We will hear Beethoven's 32 Variations in C minor WoO 80 and Sonata No. 12 in A flat major, Op. 26 and Fryderyk Chopin's mazurkas and nocturnes. As Marcin Majchrowski points out, 'Chopin had no equal in bringing simple forms and genres to the limits of sublimation. This is evidenced by two late opuses – the Mazurkas, Op. 59 and the last Nocturnes, Op. 62 – sophisticated essays on musical beauty ”.
