This year's Festival, which will be held from 14 to 16 October, is devoted to the work of Witold Lutosławski and marks the tenth anniversary of his death.
The Ninth Polish Composers' Festival, under the honorary chairmanship of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, will take place in Bielsko-Biała between 14 and 16 October. During this year's Festival, which is devoted to the work of Witold Lutosławski and commemorates the tenth annivesary of his death, it will be possible to hear, among other works, the Cello Concerto, the Double Concerto for Oboe, Harp and Chamber Orchestra, the Partita, the String Quartet, the Piano Concerto and the Concerto for Orchestra as well as popular songs that the composer wrote under the pseudonym Derwid.

A seminar devoted to the life and work of W. Lutosławski will take place at the State Music School on 16 October, with the participation of H. M. Górecki.
The State Music School at Bielsko-Biała is taking an active part in the organisation of the Festival: a piano competition and a general knowledge competition about Witold Lutosławski for music school students have been held as events associated with the Festival.
The Festival will feature the exhibition ‘Witold Lutosławski and His Musical Ideas’ prepared by PWM Edition.
PWM Edition has launched a campaign and an international educational project, which brings the works by Polish composers closer to the audiences worldwide. ‘Music from Chopin’s Land’ encompasses more than just pieces by Chopin – it also means Paderewski, Szymanowska, Moniuszko, Kilar, Kurpiński and many other composers.
On 30 September, the call for applications for the International Composition Contest for Wind Orchestra Warsaw Wind Ensemble Composition Contest 2020 was closed. From almost 50 applications, the jury selected seven laureates and distinguished five compositions.
In the year of the exceptional jubilee, the composer's 90 birthday, a unique album is published in the ANAKLASIS catalogue, devoted to the chamber vocal and instrumental works of Twardowski. They are performed by the world-famous bass-baritone, Tomasz Konieczny, and an outstanding pianist, Lech Napierała.
The songs of Stanisław Moniuszko and Romuald Twardowski are widely known and appreciated both by the public and the musical world. But what if we could get to know these pieces from the inside out? Two world-class musicians invite you to a unique master class experience – delivered straight to your doorstep! The acclaimed bass-baritone Tomasz Konieczny and the ingenious pianist Lech Napierała will be the guides to those who are curious about the most beautiful Polish songs. The online Song Master Class program is launching now.
PWM Edition and Warsaw Wind Music Association invite to take part in the International Composition Contest for Wind Orchestra - Warsaw Wind Ensemble Composition Contest 2020. This is the first edition of the international competition for composers, the subject of which is to write a premiere composition for a concert wind orchestra.
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.
On May 5th, the bicentenary of Stanisław Moniuszko’s birth will be celebrated throughout Poland. PWM Edition has already begun its celebrations earlier, and announced Stanisław Moniuszko our May COMPOSER OF THE MONTH.
More than 20 new sheet music publications, books and CD albums; nearly 90 reissues; performance materials for orchestras and opera houses; more than a hundred digital publications available worldwide; 7,000 pages of free access digitalised materials; more than a thousand unique graphics and photos; nearly 30 events for adult and young audiences – all these are part of PWM Edition’s celebrations programme prepared for the bicentenary of Stanisław Moniuszko’s birth.
We are very happy to inform that Tomasz Knittel’s film Mieczysław Karłowicz. Samotna wędrówka [Mieczysław Karłowicz. A Lone Journey], co-produced by PWM Edition and TVP (Polish state television broadcaster), won the Silver Pegasus during the gala of the 22nd Zakopane Festival of Films about Art held on 14th April.
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.
