Musica Polonica Nova

The festival has been taking place for over half a century (every two years), and its co-organizer is the Polish Composers' Union. The programme abounding in premieres presents the latest trends in music and compositions important for the development of Polish music in the 20th and 21st centuries. The festival, whose Artistic Director is Paweł Hendrich, refers to the reality that surrounds us, redefines what music is, and sets new paths for creative work .
