Music by Elżbieta Sikora and Ewa Fabiańska-Jelińska at the ISCM World Music Days in South Korea
"Five Miniatures" for orchestra by Elżbieta Sikora and "Three Polish Dances (Mazur, Kujawiak, Oberek)" for brass quintet and organ by Ewa Fabiańska-Jelińska have been selected for the ISCM World Music Days Festival in South Korea. The prestigeous festival will be held between 29 March and 3 April 2016.
The prestigeous festival will be held between 29 March and 3 April 2016. Apart from the music by Elżbieta Sikora and Ewa Fabiańska-Jelińska, "Sakubel Osil" for soprano, flute, clarinet, violin and cello by Tomasz Skweres will also be presented at the festival.
"Five Miniatures" for orchestra is a piece that Elżbieta Sikora composed in 2013 upon commission of the Polish Radio Programme 2. Ewa Cichoń wrote that it is "a composition that is fresh in its sound, internally contrastive and using various techniques. Although referring to tradition, for instance by introducing the famous b-a-c-h motive, and to Sikora's previous works, it does not seem to have stopped in the past. Elżbieta Sikora must be one of those artists who remain open to new possibilities, irrespective of the intricacies of her career.
While composing "Three Polish Dances" for brass quintet, Ewa Fabiańska-Jelińska drew inspiration from Polish folklore: "This area of art abounds with variety of colours, sounds, shapes and contrasts. Many elements representing folk art, which may seem simple or usual at first, can reach the mystical level. Composers make an attempt to rediscover and restore the memory about folk art, they try to grasp its meaning and depth by making artistic references. Three Polish Dances is a three-movement piece of different expression and character: I. Mazur, II. Kujawiak, III. Oberek."

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. Thirty composers, more than half of whom are associated with PWM Edition – all this has made me happy, and I am leaving Katowice one hundred per cent satisfied,” said Daniel Cichy PhD, Director and Editor-in-Chief of PWM Edition, summing up the 8th Festival of Premieres in Katowice, which came to its close last Sunday.
