The 59th "Warsaw Autumn" was held between 16th and 24th September 2016 and focused among others on the theme of contemporary opera. This fact encouraged us to produce for the first time in the history of the Chronicle series the Multimedia Chronicle which includes 5 audio CDs and 2 DVDs with selection of four operas presented at the Festival.
Since great Italian composer Salvatore Sciarrino was the featured composer of this year’s Festival, two discs – one CD and one DVD – were devoted especially to his works.
Similarly to the previous issues, one CD within the series (CD No. 5) was dedicated to very young composers. It contains six compositions presented during two concerts organised by the Youth Circle of the Polish Composers’ Union as fringe events of the Festival.
