10/10: The Polish Music Center presents the 2021 Paderewski Lecture-Recital

Sunday, Oct. 10, 7:00 pm

Jeanette MacDonald Recital Hall + Livestream

(Event starts at 6:20) The USC Polish Music Center presents the annual Paderewski Lecture-Recital, honoring the 25th death anniversary of Mieczysław Weinberg (1919- 1996)—an exceptionally prolific Polish-Jewish composer whose recognition, both during his lifetime and today, has been overshadowed by the turbulent times in which he lived. The event will feature a lecture by Weinberg expert and author, Danuta Gwizdalanka, followed by a program of his selected solo piano works and Sonata No. 2 for Cello and Piano. The recital will be performed by pianists Grzegorz Mania and Piotr Różanski and cellist Bartosz Koziak, of the Society of Polish Chamber Musicians.
