The International Conference "Trombone in the 20th and 21st Century Polish Music – Inspirations and Perspectives" will take place at the Academy of Music in Łódź on 9-10 April 2021. All lectures, concerts and master classes with foreign guests will be held online; the recordings will be made available on the Academy's YouTube channel.
The conference was initiated by two teachers from the Academy of Music in Łódź: Robert Żelazko and Dariusz Sprawka. The guests of the conference will be world-class trombonists from Sweden, Germany and Poland: Hakan Björkman (Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Yamaha Artist), Tomer Maschkowski (Deutsche Symphony Orchestra Berlin, Yamaha Artist), Maciej Łakomy (I.J. Paderewski Academy of Music in Poznań), Tomasz Hajda (K. Lipiński Academy of Music in Wrocław, NOSPR in Katowice), Dariusz Sprawka (G. and K. Bacewicz Academy of Music in Łódź) and Robert Żelazko (the G. and K. Bacewicz Academy of Music in Łódź ).
The conference programme includes workshops, lectures, concerts and online master classes, which are currently very popular among students who are not able to attend foreign courses. The event is devoted to the 20th and 21st century Polish music for trombone. The topic will be widely discussed during panel discussions and lectures and the 20th- and 21st-century trombone pieces will be performed during a conference concert. The programme will include compositions for both solo trombone and trombone ensembles. Each teacher, apart from the lecture, will give open master classes, during which one will learn more about the performance technique, ways of self-improvement, psychological aspects of playing an instrument and dealing with stress.
