Agnieszka Budzińska-Bennett will be the guest of the next, eighth broadcast from the series "House Party with Dwójka". The concert from her home in Switzerland will be held at 7 p.m. on 6 June 2020.
Every weekend, Polish Radio Channel 2 (Dwójka) invites you to concerts taking place in the homes of artists who want to share their music with listeners and Internet users in these difficult times of isolation. This Saturday, Agnieszka Budzińska-Bennett will perform with Elizabeth Rumsey – an instrumentalist who specializes in performing 15th- and 16th-century music.
Their concert programme will include medieval and Renaissance motets, psalms and songs, some in instrumental versions, as well as works by composers of the turn of the 20th century – Ignacy Jan Paderewski and Karol Szymanowski. During the concert, you'll be able to hear several historical instruments, such as the gothic harp, viola d'arco and lirone. There will be also a surprise for listeners – Agnieszka Budzińska-Bennett, who is also a pianist by education, will play the piano in public for the first time since graduation.
