Virtuosos in the making

Young classical musicians aspiring to be virtuosos will get an opportunity to learn from prominent teachers during the eighth Maciej Paderewski Warsaw International Masterclasses at the Wilanów Culture Center Aug. 16-24.

This year’s classes will be conducted by a select group of soloists and chamber musicians who teach at music academies and include Katarzyna Popowa-Zydroń (piano), Maja Nosowska (chamber pianist), Paweł Gusnar (saxophone), and Krzysztof Herdzin (impromptu pianist).

Some of the instructors, including Popowa-Zydroń and Herdzin, will join forces with course participants to perform a concert together Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. at Warsaw’s Wilanów Palace.

The Warsaw masterclasses were first held in 2006 under an initiative launched by Prof. Maciej Paderewski, a great pianist, chamber musician and a teacher at the Frederic Chopin University of Music in Warsaw. The courses were held for four consecutive years until 2009, attended by several hundred young musicians from Poland, Russia, Latvia, Moldova, France, Italy and Japan. When Paderewski died, the organizers decided to keep his legacy alive and the classes have been since named after him.

In their seventh year, the masterclasses were moved to the Wilanów Culture Center.

Concerts and recitals performed by the students and their instructors have been part of the event since 2006.
