The Kraków branch of the Association of Polish Chamber Musicians (SPMK) is presenting a unique concert series. The “Intergenerational Academy of Music: Kraków / Dobczyce” will be held from 13 September – 14 December 2020 at the Villa Decius in Kraków and the Mayor M. Pawlak Regional Educational and Sports Centre in Dobczyce.

The project involves a series of four artistic and educational meetings in each town, including recitals, lectures and meetings with artists. The idea of ​​the project is to present chamber music that derives from the tradition of home and salon music making. In addition, the concept of the series refers to the tradition of musical societies. The assumption is that the repertoire should be both ambitious and attractive, engaging for a multigenerational audience (grandparents and grandchildren), and presented by the best performers, who will also meet with the listeners and talk about their interpretations of musical works.

The list of performers in this series include outstanding Polish artists: pianists Julia Samojło, Monika Gardoń-Preinl, Wioletta Fluda-Tkaczyk; violinist Maria Sławek; clarinetist Piotr Lato; and the Extra Sounds Ensemble led by Alicja Śmietana. Audiences will hear pieces by Roman Ryterband, Stefan Kisielewski, Ignacy Feliks Dobrzyński, Mieczysław Weinberg, and Ludwig van Beethoven.
