In honor of Paderewski, the four-day Festival will be held this year from November 5-8, 2015 at various venues around Paso Robles. Audiences will hear historical works by Paderewski, Karol Szymanowski and Tadeusz Kosciuszko, as well as contemporary masterpieces by Witold Lutosławski, Wojciech Kilar, Krzysztof Penderecki and Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, reinterpreted.
