Welcome Words

During the many decades of my compositional and conducting activities, I have repeatedly experienced the importance of the encouragement of young musicians throughout the whole world. All existing cooperation projects between classical music institutions – our opera houses, concert halls and symphony orchestras – and schools, conservatories and universities will not only generate our audiences of the future, but also encourage an ever growing number of young people to become highly qualified instrumentalists.

I have however always regretted the relative rarity of opportunities for international exchange within the framework of these cooperative projects and am all the more proud that the European Krzysztof Penderecki Music Center has now been in the process of development for 6 years in such close vicinity to my own residence and place of work. Thanks to the pioneering decision on the part of my country’s government, the foundations have been laid 2006 for an institution with a central location between East and West which will become a meeting point for young musicians from Poland and also from the whole world who will benefit from the advantages of special training.

Further initiatives are still necessary for the comprehensive implementation of this large-scale project; instruments, musical material and scholarships are required to transform the initial ideas of the founders of this institution to ensure that this concept expands into a living organism: I have also taken every possible opportunity to provide my own personal support. For this reason, I am particularly grateful to my music-loving friends who have gathered together under the motto “music connects” to lend their support to the European Krzysztof Penderecki Music Center and thereby make their contribution to the preservation of my lifetime achievement. I am looking forward to the harmonious cooperation between many friends and wish MUSIC UNITES and myself an ever-increasing number of magical musical moments in Luslawice.

About us

uberuns

The composer, conductor, teacher and patron of young musicians Krzysztof Penderecki is considered not only as one of the most distinguished personalities on the international classical music scene, but also as one of the most influential cultural ambassadors for his native country of Poland.
His oeuvre containing more than 100 works reflects a wide spectrum of genres, types and styles of European musical traditions and has additionally provided decisive impulses with its original approaches towards the avantgarde. His most successful major works such as the "St Luke Passion", "The Devils of Loudon", the "Polish Requiem" and the "Seven Gates of Jerusalem" now stand as a representation of Penderecki"s individual compositional style: an amalgam of deeply personal tonal visions and existing forms, styles and harmony.
