The Association of Polish Chamber Musicians – Kraków Branch, as part of the "Culture on the web" programme of the National Centre for Cultre, has implemented an innovative project "Children's chamber music online and at home" covering about 1100 minutes of recordings of Polish chamber music. Starting from 14 October 2020, the materials will be available in the new con.sol.la mobile application and on the YouTube channel of PWM Edition, which is a partner of the project.
"Children's chamber music online and at home" includes recordings of individual parts of children's instrumental duets published by PWM Edition, enabling ensemble playing at home, remote learning and social isolation. The project consists of over 375 audio and audio-video recordings of duet pieces.
Among them there are compositions by outstanding contemporary composers, such as Hanna Kulenty, Grażyna Bacewicz, Janina Garścia and Romuald Twardowski. For each work, recordings of individual parts were prepared in two different tempos to enable ensemble playing by students of various education levels, and to encourage amateur musicians. Model versions were also prepared for each piece.
The recordings at BBrecords Studio were performed by excellent musicians: Ravel Piano Duo, Anna Maria Staśkiewicz (violin), Joanna Konarzewska (violin), Julia Samojło (piano), Piotr Gach (cello), Michał Panasiuk (cello), Maria Sławek (violin) and Anna Kuk (violin).
