CONSTELLATIONS. POLISH MUSIC 1918-2018
Gallery »

Constellations ‒ a kind of map in which unrelated points intersect across a geometric plane. Currents and concepts in Polish music of the last century form just such a network. Constellations in the Fryderyk Chopin Museum is a commentary, written through almost 70 different works, on the approaches of composers towards history, tradition and modernity.

Temporary exhibition: 9.11.2018 ‒ 3.03.2019

 

Accompanying events:

13 November, 6 pm

Introductory lecture by Prof. Iwona Lindstedt

What links and what separates the work of Polish composers of the past century? How was the Constellations map constructed? This talk about the process of creating the exhibition will be, at the same time, an opportunity to take a look at the achievements of Polish artists.

 

11 December, 6 pm

Panel discussion:  What is Polish music today?

Guide: Jan Topolski

Panel members: Hanna Kulenty, Dr Katarzyna Naliwajek-Mazurek, Prof. Szábolcs Esztényi, Piotr Peszat

Musicologists, music theorists, composers of the older and younger generations, both those born in Poland and those who have chosen Poland as their country of artistic activity. Representatives of each of these groups will sit down at the same table to consider the question of what Polish music is today.
