The 48th edition of the International Festival of Contemporary Music ‘Poznań Music Spring’ will take place from May 24-28, 2023. Over the course of five festival days, many recognized artists will perform on the stages of Poznań, presenting works by both Polish and foreign composers.

This year, Festival events were preceded in March by a symphonic concert at the Poznań Philharmonic, featuring compositions by Katarzyna Kwiecień-Długosz, Kazimierz Serocki and Krzysztof Meyer. The May edition will consist of nine concerts showcasing various facets of chamber music. The key criterion for selecting the repertoire for this year was compositions with non-standard instrumentation.

The concerts will include premieres of compositions by Katarzyna Kwiecień-Długosz (Aequinoctium for symphony orchestra), Katarzyna Arnhold (Civitas Terrena-Civitas Dei for oboe and electronics), Aleksandra (Ola) Bilińska (#2020…Scream for Aleksandra P. for solo oboe and electronics), Michał Janocha (Trzy Tempa for oboe and electronics), Katarzyna Taborowska (Diffusion for oboe and electronics), Barbara Kaszuba (Face-to-face), Jaromir Gajewski (DUO for piano and percussion), Andrzej Dziadek (A due per vibrafono e pianoforte), Tadeusz Dixa (Impression for percussion and piano), and Artur Żuchowski (He Was and There for mezzo-soprano and piano). The festival program also includes events initiated by the youngest generation of composers.

A special event called the ‘Atelier Meeting’ will be dedicated to two prominent composers, who were creators of the ‘Poznańs Music Spring’ and who have made a lasting contribution to the cultural heritage of Poznań and the Wielkopolska region. The ‘Atelier’ will be an opportunity to commemorate the memory of Tadeusz Szeligowski on the 60th anniversary of his death and Florian Dąbrowski on the 110th anniversary of his birth.
