Since the founding of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, classical music has been one of the most important areas of its cultural activities. The purpose of the Institute’s music projects is to increase the presence of Polish pieces in the repertoire of international professional musicians, both Polish and foreign. For this purpose, the Institute pursues collaboration with international musical institutes and festivals, and supports the international presences of Polish institutions and performers.
The Institute’s activities encompass both the newest music as well as the field that can be described as musical heritage, i.e. music and musical phenomena that belong to the past.
In its operations, the Institute works with Polish and foreign performers and partners, supports selected concerts and production of albums, and ensures the presence of musicians at top-level international events. The Institute also supports young musicians through various residency programmes and makes it possible for them to work with renowned ensembles from around the world.
Key projects in 2017 will include an international conference on Polish Radio’s Experimental Studio and the organisation of Poland’s stand at Classical:Next in Rotterdam, one of the most important musical trade fairs.
