Project “Forgotten Composers”

 

Paweł Albiński is author of project "Forgotten Composers" which main goal is to spread knowledge about life and work of forgotten composers. Those are artists represent different music periods and styles. Not only come those composers from Europe (France, Belgium, Ukraine, Latvia, Hungary, Poland, Russia) but also from USA or Asia. The idea of the whole project is to develop music art by searching for, unknown today, pieces of works and broadening the world’s repertoire with new and additional names. Additional mission is to build awareness of a great value of those unperformed works which in many cases are much more complicated that some of the popular works.

During Paweł’s recitals you may hear unpopular scores. It allows audience to familiarize themselves with not yet discovered areas of music. Apart from the concerts during his performance there are also lectures dedicated to biography and work of unknown musicians. Every meeting is dedicated to one musician and information about his life, artistic activity and music style is enriched with presentation of the most interesting and representative works.
