The winners of the 19th edition of the Cyprian Kamil Norwid Award were announced on 24 September 2020 at 12.00 p.m. during an online conference.
The conference was attended by representatives of Masovian authorities and the chairman of the Norwid Chapter. In the "Music" category, nominations for the work or performance created in 2019 went to: Marta Boberska for the roles of Music and Eurydice in the premiere of Claudio Monteverdi's Orpheus (Polish Royal Opera), Paweł Łukaszewski for the work Ascensio Domini and Paweł Mykietyn.
In accordance with the decision of the Norwid Chapter, the Cyprian Kamil Norwid Award in the "Music" category went to the composer and clarinetist Paweł Mykietyn for Concerto No. 2 for cello and symphony orchestra. Let us recall that the composer received this Award for the first time in 2017 for the opera The Magic Mountain.
The Cyprian Kamil Norwid Award is awarded annually to artists working in Masovia in four categories: literature, music, fine arts and theater for an outstanding work or performance created in the preceding year. Since 2005, the Self-Government of the Masovian Voivodeship has also awarded "The Lifetime Achievement" award to artists who work in the Masovian Voivodeship.
