The Polish Society for Contemporary Music invites you to the concert of the laureates of the 13th Competition of 20th and 21st Century Music for Young Performers, which will be held online on 19 November 2020 at 7.00 p.m.
The copetition was open to all instrumentalists and vocalists (regardless of citizenship) as well as Polish citizens who study abroad. The competition under the honorary patronage of the Polish Composers' Union aimed at presenting music of the 20th and 21st centuries. The programme had to include at least one piece by a Polish composer. The jury was composed of Dariusz Przybylski, Anna Dorota Władyczka and Maciej Żółtowski. The organizers appreciated the huge work and role of teachers in preparing the competition programme. For this reason, each statury prize was divided in half between the winner and his teacher. Extra-statutory material prizes were provided by PWM Edition.
During the final concert, the winners of the competition – cellist Hanxiang Chen (Complex of Silesian International Schools), percussionist Tomasz Herisz (Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice), flautists Maciej Kasperek (Zenon Brzewski Secondary Music School in Warsaw) and Jagoda Krzemińska (Royal Academy of Music in London), saxophonists Kacper Puczko (Zenon Brzewski Secondary Music School in Warsaw), Wojciech Chałupka and Łukasz Dyczko (Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw) – will perform works by Witold Lutosławski, Mikołaj Majkusiak, Bogusław Schaeffer and Wojciech Chałupka.
