Gdańsk in Vilnius’ is an exchange concert of accordion students of Stanisław Moniuszko Academy of Music in Gdańsk (Poland). A collaboration of accordion classes of both institutions has been the long-standing tradition. Ewa Nizielska, Małgorzata Remiszewska, Wojciech Kowal, Paweł Wiśniewski and Albert Woelke will present a diverse repertoire from baroque to contemporary music, including pieces for accordion and electronics: Girolamo Frescobaldi, Enrique Granados, György Ligeti, Franck Angelis, Krzysztof Olczak, Jacek Grudzień, Mikołaj Majkusiak, Arkadiusz Czernysz. Krzysztof Olczak (b.1956), whose three pieces will be performed is an accordionist, a composer and a professor at the Academy of Music in Gdańsk, one of the most important figures in Polish accordion music since 1976. Mikołaj Majkusiak (b. 1983) represents a younger generation of Polish musicians. He is a prolific composer whose music is gaining an international acclaim and has been performed all over the world. The electroacoustic part of the repertoire is an aftermath of a project conducted at Stanisław Moniuszko Academy of Music in the past semestr which concluded with a competition for the best performance of accordion electronic music.

Programme: G. Frescobaldi, E. Granados, G. Ligeti, K. Olczak, J. Grudzień, F. Angelis, M. Majkusiak, A. Czernysz
