Aleksander Lasoń – composer, conductor, pianist. Aesthete. June’s COMPOSER OF THE MONTH.
Websites offer facts relating to the artist’s creative path. Yet one would seek in vain information relating to his private life. The composer keeps his world strictly to himself. At our request, however, he has lifted the veil of secrecy. In his own inimitable way, Aleksander Lasoń speaks about the things most important to him. In the form of a compositional A to Z, the like of which we have yet to see on the PWM website!
Marcin Stańczyk will again be representing Poland in the second edition of the 16+1 cooperation programme between China and the countries of Central-Eastern Europe, which will take place in 2018–2019.

Young, innovative, ambitious, unconventional, surprising, bold.
Those words describe our COMPOSER OF THE MONTH for May – Andrzej Kwieciński.
Intriguing, inspiring, moving…
The A to Z of Zygmunt Krauze, April’s COMPOSER OF THE MONTH, will be nothing if not stimulating. Not wishing to drop any hints, we leave you the pleasure of following the paths set out by the composer.
‘If we had to burn all of Shakespeare’s plays but one […] I’d choose Antony and Cleopatra’, wrote the British poet and writer W. H. Auden. This work, of outstanding poetical and theatrical qualities, could not have found a better interpreter than the composer and singer Agata Zubel, who has linked her artistic path almost entirely with words. Invoking original excerpts from Shakespeare’s work, Zubel does not tell the ancient queen’s story, but in her music she expresses Cleopatra’s love, anger, fear, sorrow, courage and pride. She shows the truth about the woman-goddess beset by contradictory passions.
The winners of the 10th International Stanisław Moniuszko Vocal Competition have been announced. The first prize goes to Maria Motolygina from Russia, while Alina Adamski won the PWM Edition Prize for the best performance of a Polish 20th/21st-century song.

PWM Edition is not just about sheet music and books. We are also involved in all kinds of educational activities, aiming to promote and support music education in both general and music schools. In this way we fulfil Plato’s postulate that “children ought to be taught music, physics and philosophy; but music in particular, because it contains models and all the skills that are crucial to learning”.
Since the first quarter of 2019 is already behind us, let us sum up PWM Edition’s educational enterprises in that period.
The world premiere of the most recent work by the highly regarded Polish composer Agata Zubel is to take place on 9th April 2019 at the Auditorium Marcel Landowski in Paris.

The concert is part of the cycle “It Is a Woman’s World (Too)”.
“A three-day festival of new music; seven concerts, two installations, nearly fifteen hours of music – only the most recent works.
