    THE 20TH AND 21ST CENTURY MUSIC CONTEST FOR YOUNG PERFORMERS (ORGANIZED SINCE 1992)

    The Music Competition of the 20th and 21st Century for Young Performers takes place in two age categories: students of music schools and students of music academies. The aim of the competition is to introduce into the curricula of 20th and 21st century music and thus popularize it. The participants perform the most valuable works representing various styles and techniques of composition, and a special emphasis is placed on the music created after 1970. In addition, the Competition creates an opportunity to find and promote young, talented musicians and to direct their interests and promotion. It enjoys great interest of schools and universities. Important and valued element of the project is autonomy of the Jury from the pedagogical environment.

    The project was carried out by the PTMW Office - 5 people were directly involved:

    1. IwonaKisiel - secretary of the competition jury,
    2. Anita Gąska - producer of competition auditions,
    3. RadosławKról - director of the competition,
    4.Alina Domurat - task coordinator,
    5.Maria Gronek - financial coordinator

    Organizationally PTMW was supported by specialized staff of partner institutions: support for the House of Creative Work of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage - the Palace in Radziejowice. WitoldLustosławki Concert Hall of the Polish Radio in Warsaw. The competition took place in three stages: the first were qualifications in schools and music universities in the whole country (until 20 April 2018), the second - semi-final auditions in Radziejowicein days, and the third - final auditions.
    The number of direct participants in the Competition was determined by its program specificity (the time of auditions in semi-finals and finals is about 25 hours) and the substantive and logistics facilities (number of beds with necessary facilities to organize rehearsals and auditions).
    Let us add that in the first stage of the competition (hearings in schools and universities) several hundred people worked in the committees of the whole country. In addition, the competition auditions were open to the public, and the laureates' concert was held in the Radio Concert Hall, which attracted several hundred listeners. Concert was available to thousands of listeners of the Polish Radio, in which the laureates' concert was played (also offered for recreation in over 40 national broadcasters associated in the European Radio Union). With the participation of Polish Radio, there was also a radio advertisement of the Competition. In addition, the Contest was featured on the internet (PTMW websites and other music sites, e.g. the Polish Music Information Center), in the daily press (through press releases), and this happened independently of traditional methods: information contained in the Competition regulations was distributed a few months before the finals and posters, invitations and program of the Laureates' Concert. In addition, interested participants and pedagogues could use the brochure List of musical literature containing programs of all previous competitions divided into individual instruments.

    WYPOMINKI IN KAMEDULSKIE UNDERGROUND
    1.11.2018, 8pm, Warsaw

    Performers:
    Ks. WojciechDrozdowicz–speach
    UlianaHorbaczewska (Ukraine) – vocal
    SzabolcsEsztenyi– piano
    RyszardLatecki – trumpet, synthesizer
    Hubert Zemler– percussion

    The music that will accompany the ceremony
    is Byzantine songs - Irmos and Ukrainian and Lemko folk folk songs - Psalms and contemporary instrumental improvisations.
    IRMOLOGY SONG is traditional sacred singing. This music
    she came to Ukraine from Byzantium. Over the centuries she absorbed
    she had a melody and Ukrainian aesthetics, she gained new ones
    music and language. New forms were created ...
    In the 17th century, music began to displace this song from
    churches. It was during this time that most of the melody remained
    recorded by the monks, thanks to which they survived and
    they have survived to this day.
    PSALMA is a folk song with a religious content. It has nothing
    in common with the Psalms of the Holy Bible. It is rather folk
    interpretation of Christianity, variations on the topic of life
    saints ... On the one hand, the psalms are close to music
    church, on the other are related to folk songs.

    The creators treat the Vernow journey as a metaphor of an expedition into the depths of human memory, through the layers of perceiving reality. Thanks to the computer-based instrumentation of Marek Chołoniewski, a specific "neurophysiology of travel" is expressed through the sound shaped by the brain waves. The visual material consists of recordings of public life events, photographs from childhood of performers, photos from Amiens (places of Verne's life) and unique vivid activities carried out live.
    The work was created thanks to the IMIT program "Composite Orders". The performance took place as part of the 32nd Warsaw Music Encounters and the Museum Night.
