A series of WarszeMuzik chamber concerts will be held for the fifth time in the backyards of Warsaw tenement houses and in the extraordinary space of the Umschlagplatz Monument. From August 1-29, 2021, the festival organizers invite you to 11 micro-concerts and 3 walking tours in the former Northern District led by Agnieszka Kuś, co-author of the guide Weinberg’s Warsaw, which is scheduled to premiere at the beginning of September.
The festival will present a very diverse repertoire corresponding with the space of preserved buildings: from classical music, among others by the patron of the festival, Mieczysław Weinberg, and Andrzej Czajkowski, through improvisations to poetry by Irena Klepfisz and the imaginary sounds of the Syrena Rekord studio, to the works of contemporary music composers.
