Invitation from the Recotor of University of Warsaw
Ladies and gentlemen,
It gives me a great pleasure to welcome you to a truly special event linked to the celebrations of 200 years of the University of Warsaw. This event is a cycle of Chopin concerts given by outstanding piano masters from various countries.
Our cycle fits in well with the international trend of organising classical music concerts at the best universities in the world. In 2016 we will host five exceptional pianists, who will give recitals at the Auditorium Maximum. They will be Eugen Indjic (United States), Markus Groh (Germany), Ingolf Wunder (Austria), Daniil Trifonov (Russia) and Benjamin Grosvenor (United Kingdom).
It is worth noting that the University of Warsaw campus was a special place in Fryderyk Chopin’s life. The composer not only lived for ten years (1817–1827) on the University’s premises, in the so-called “rector house”, with his parents and sisters, but also graduated from the Music School, part of the University’s Faculty of Fine Arts and Sciences.
I am very happy that Fryderyk Chopin’s music will be heard at the University of Warsaw during our jubilee year in some of the best interpretations in the world.
Let me wish you many marvellous musical moments and please come and enjoy other concerts.
Rector of the University of Warsaw
