Classical Music Workshops

Article's tools:

A host of young musicians and classical music teachers from across Europe are expected to come to Warsaw in the second half of August for the annual Maciej Paderewski Warsaw International Master Classes that will be held for the seventh time at the Wilanów Culture Center, 26 Wiertnicza St., Aug. 16-24.

This year’s workshops will be conducted by a number of outstanding soloists and chamber musicians doubling as music teachers. These include pianists Katarzyna Popowa-Zydroń, Alberto Nose and Maja Nosowska; violinists Bartosz Bryła and Mariusz Patyra; and saxophonist Paweł Gusnar. Jerzy Marchwiński will conduct a seminar on “Partnership in Music;” Włodzimierz Zalewski will be teaching vocals, and Krzysztof Herdzin will provide an introduction to composition and teach a course on improvisation. On Sunday, Aug. 18, at 7 p.m., course teachers will give a special gala concert at Wilanów Palace.

The Warsaw International Master Classes were held for the first time in 2006 at the Karol Szymanowski State Music School Complex No. 4 in Warsaw. The originator and artistic director of the event was Maciej Paderewski, a distinguished pianist and chamber musician who was also a professor at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw and the Karol Szymanowski State Music School Complex No. 4.

From 2006 to 2009 the courses were attended by hundreds of young musicians from Poland as well as Lithuania, Ukraine, Japan, China and Korea. The courses were accompanied by concerts by teachers and students.

After Paderewski’s death in 2010, the organizers decided to continue on with the project, and the event was named after its originator. The 2011 and 2012 courses attracted over 100 participants. They were accompanied by music concerts by course teachers and students. Last year, performers included Ewa Iżykowska—soprano, Mariusz Patyra—violin, and Alberto Nose—piano.
