„SAY THANKS TO KOLBERG FOR HIS TIRELESS WORK”. OSKAR KOLBERG: ETHNOGRAPHER, MUSICIAN, MUSICOGRAPHER AND CHOPINOLOGIST.

Preview of the exhibition ‘Say thanks to Kolberg for his tireless work’. Oskar Kolberg: ethnographer, musician, musicographer and Chopinologist.

The exhibition ‘Say thanks to Kolberg for his tireless work’. Oskar Kolberg: ethnographer, musician, musicographer and Chopinologist consists of two modules: boards presenting Kolberg’s life and work and a  narrative covering the permanent display of the Chopin Museum. The boards will subsequently serve as a touring exhibition, showing the results of the tireless work undertaken by the father of Polish ethnography. The other module will remain in the Museum and will act as a ‘guide’ to the permanent display. We trust that the beautiful Polish of Kolberg’s notes will encourage visitors to take a fresh look at Chopin’s art.
