The cellist Andrzej Bauer is one of the artists to perform in the Sunday concert from the "Paweł Mykietyn zaprasza" series at the Warsaw Philharmonic

Taking example from some of the leading music institutions in the world, Warsaw's National Philharmonic introduced a concept of a series of concerts dedicated to one selected artist (a kind of composer-in-residence). And in 2010/2011 it is Paweł Mykietyn. The idea which came from the National Philharmonic's director Antoni Wit, includes a series of concerts featuring the works of the composer along with pieces of other composers. Paweł Mykietyn is also responsible for the selection of contemporary music presented at the concerts.

The programme for the latest concert in the "Paweł Mykietyn zaprasza" series includes pieces by Anton Webern, Olivier Messiaen, Steve Reich, Jonathan Harvey, Arvo Pärt and Paweł Mykietyn. The performing artists are: Andrzej Bauer - cello, Bartosz Wąsik - piano, sampler, Cezary Duchnowski - computer (sound projection) and Ewa Guziołek-Tubelewicz - sound-engineer.

The concert has been prepared in collaboration with Nowy Teatr in Warsaw.

The concert will take place on Sunday (December 5, 2010) at 7:00 PM.
