Events for Chamber Music

Polish Music Spring: Młoda Polska (Young Poland)

As part of Poland's 2018 Centennial Celebration, the Polish Music Center presents a spring concert of music by composers of the Młoda Polska (Young Poland) generation, whose works are typified by the modernist and neo-romantic aesthetic of pre-war occupied Poland. Composers on the program will include such luminaries as Noskowski, Paderewski, Stojowski, Szymanowski, Zarębski and Żeleński. The performers—violinist Maria Sławek and pianists Grzegorz Mania and Piotr Różański—are members of the Polish Society of Chamber Musicians, an active group of excellent young musicians who perform and educate around the world.
