On behalf of the Witold Lutosławski Society (Towarzystwo im. Witolda Lutosławskiego) in Warsaw, Sz. Pani Elżbieta Markowska donated the two-volume edition of Okupacyjne losy muzyków—Warszawa 1939-1945. This publication contains rarely seen material on major Polish musicians who endured unspeakable conditions and ravages of war and still managed to make music; a significant part of the book is unpublished texts and documents from the collection of the Warsaw Music Society.
From Agata Wolska,we recieved the book Wystawa Powszechna w Paryżu—Autografy Kompozytorów Polskich edited by Irena Poniatowska and published by the Mickiewicz Institute. The album is a very important musical documentary for Polish musical culture as it contains unique and previously unknown manuscripts and autographs of 27 Polish composers of the late nineteenth century. With texts in French, Polish and English, this publication was produced by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute (IAM) and the Fryderyk Chopin Institute (NIFC).
Many thanks, as always, to all of our generous donors and friends!
