London Concert to Promote National Edition of Chopin's Works

Jan Krzysztof Broja

The concert at Westminster Cathedral Hall was held to promote the new National Edition of the works of Fryderyk Chopin, featuring accomplished Polish musicians such as Jakub Jakowicz, Andrzej Bauer and Jan Krzysztof Broja

The National Edition of the Works of Fryderyk Chopin is a unique, complete collection of the Polish composer's works that may become a primary resource for both sudents and teachers as well as music enthusiasts.

The National Edition, put together by Professor Jan Ekier covers a 50 year period and was released to coincide with the "International Chopin Year 2010".

Poland's spectacular cultural accomplishment was promoted during a seminar on the "Role of the Text in Contemporary Artist's Practise", led by co-editor Paweł Kamiński, as well as a series of concerts presenting all of Chopin's chamber works performed by acclaimed Polish musicians Andrzej Bauer, Jakub Jakowicz and Jan Krzysztof Broja.

The London event's invited guests included members of the Chopin Society UK and other music fans affiliated with the Royal Academy of Music and Royal College of Music, as well as distribution representatives of the National Edition in Great Britain. The promotion of the National Edition was coordinated by the Polish Cultural Institute in London, the Chopin Society UK and 'Polskie Wydawnictwo Muzyczne' / 'PMW Edition'.

F. Chopin Concert Programme:

Introduction and Polonaise C Major, Op. 3 for piano and violoncello

Sonata g-moll op. 65 for piano and violoncello

Grand Duo Concertant Db Op. 16 for piano and violoncello

Trio g-moll op. 8 for piano, violin and violoncello

The project's aim is to reach the widest audience of music lovers, especially various music societies in England- from music professors to piano students, musicologists and music publishers and distributers. The National Edition is the first complete edition of the works of Chopin, based on all available sources of the composer's work, left by the composer himself, as well as his students and original publishers.

The new edition also includes commentary from publishers and original sources. Concerts in the same series will also take place in Paris and Madrid.
