6th Days of Ukrainian Music in Warsaw
DAYS OF UKRAINIAN MUSIC
The 6th Days of Ukrainian Music in Warsaw.
This is the sixth time we have presented Ukrainian music in Warsaw. Once again, we are financially supported by the City of Warsaw as part of a three-year grant, ZAiKS, the MAGOVOX Company, and friends of the Foundation Bohdan Batruch and Aleksandra Petryga. The previous festival took place last year and since then we have made a firm resolution to have Ukrainian music resounding in Warsaw at the beginning of September every year.
This year we are cooperating with the National Philharmonic Orchestra, the Union of Ukrainians in Poland and the “Our Choice” Foundation. We received media patronage from the daily newspaper Rzeczpospolita, the Ukrainian weekly Our Word, TVP Kultura and Radio TOK FM.
Our sincere thanks to all our benefactors!

The concert presented music by mid-generation Ukrainian composers, scholarship holders of the MKiDN ‘Gaude Polonia’ Programme. The works were commissioned by the Polish Institute in Kiev and performed as part of the project ‘Between Word and Sound’ – between Polish poetic word and sound by Ukrainian composers. The works use poetry by Marta Podgórnik, Karol Wojtyła and Halina Poświatowska in the vocal part, while the instrumental pieces were inspired by poems by Czesław Miłosz, Wisława Szymborska and Bohdan Zadura.
