The script of the Paderewski to Chopin exhibition presents selected topics from the life of the composer, pianist and politician, as well as his great service in the popularization of Chopin’s legacy. Among the 40 mementos presented at the exhibition are such items as Paderewski’s suitcase, his calling card, valuable musical autographs and a collection of portraits of the pianist.

It will be possible to see the exhibition in the Museum’s Temporary Exhibition Room from 9 November 2018 to 13 January 2019. It will be accompanied by a series of museum lessons, as well as a guided tour combined with a concert by Michał Szymanowski on 8 January.

The second of the exhibitions, Constellations: Polish Music 1918‒2018, is a commentary devoted to the attitudes of Polish composers from the past century toward history, tradition and modernity, ‘written out’ in nearly 70 works. The multimedia exhibition in installation form will be presented from 9 November 2018 to 3 March 2019. The event will be accompanied by Constellations: An Introductory Lecture, which will take place on 13 November, as well as by a panel discussion on 11 December. Together, its participants will attempt to answer the question ‘What is Polish music today?’

The Paderewski to Chopin and Constellations: Polish Music 1918–2018 exhibitions are being carried out as part of celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Poland’s regaining of independence, as well as of the Polish Music Heritage program.
