Summer Piano Master Courses in Poland

Some photos, starting from the year 2002...

The photos below could give you only an approximate image of our Course, its atmosphere & spirit...

Attention, please! Our Summer Piano Master Courses have experienced quite a remarkable change: we have found the new place on the Earth for this very special artistic & educational project. Starting from the year 2008 we invite our Participants to the City of Rzeszow, which is very famous for its hospitality and the exceptional love for music!

You are very kindly Welcome to the forthcoming Classes, too!

The City of Olsztyn: a general view of its oldest part.


This is how the new building of the Olsztyn Music Center and its Concert Hall will look alike after the two or three years...

GwennaŰl arrived from Guadeloupe and Phu arrived from Salzburg (Mozarteum); still Olsztyn could to them both be one of the most important Cities in the World…

The 1st Part of the Chopin’s op. 11 and at the piano Mss. Julia Kociuban from Cracow (13 years old…!). Julia has been honored by the scholarship ‘Prof. Janina Butor in Memoriam’, 2005.

Piotr Lukaszczyk in 2005 brilliantly performed the 1st Scherzo of Chopin; in 2007 he played the Mephisto-Waltz of Liszt, but in 2011 – the 1st Part of the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto op. 23.

In 2006 our traditional Symphonic Gala Concert took place at the Town Hall of the City of Olsztyn.

In 2006 we went to experience the beautiful nature of Warmia region.

Yulia Talyzina from Lviv (Ukraine) had so brilliantly performed a one of the most joyful piano concertos of Mozart, KV 450 in B flat Major; she studies under Prof. Rapita.

Joanna Kacperek (Warsaw) belongs to the rather large group of the "new faces" on artistic horizons of our Courses...

Marcin & Grzegorz arrived from Kielce; here – after brilliant performance of one Part of the Sketches for the Piano of V. Gavrilin

Improvising jazz? From the left: Michal, Julia... From the right: Pawel. But in the real center of the photo? Wow! Their beloved tutor – Ms Kasia Stankowska!

Lukasz arrived from Kielce, too; here – just a while after performing the Prelude in B flat Major op. 23 No 2 of Rachmaninoff; a new, creative and the really vital artistic personality is actually being born... In 2012 he is a winner of truly many competitions of the piano...

Marcin & Monika (Katowice, Rybnik/Wrocław) have got much joy playing the   Scaramouche of Milhaud!

The 2nd & 3rd  Parts of the Piano Concerto op. 58 of Beethoven, played by Tomasz Kaczmarek (Wroclaw), have got the longest applause of the entire 2007-Course...

Mrs. Iwona Zajac and THEIR Son, Tomek (Jerzy, the Father, could not come this time) – are living in Gdynia, a one of the most tourist-friendly Polish Cities. Year by year they are strongly going toward the very comprehensible goal: better & better understanding of essentials of the Life and Art... Tomek is a prize-winner of very many piano competitions of the international level.

All the photos put on this Page have been done by Mr. Bogdan – the definitively BEST bass-guitarist among the Polish entrepreneurs, ever!

In any case, even the actual building of the Olsztyn College of Music, sharing a seat with the Philharmonic Orchestra, looks very well!   

The City Hall of Olsztyn is always beautiful, but in the nights... - wow!
