The UW Polish Studies Endowment Committee joins the celebration of Witold Lutosławski's centenary and presents the life and music of the great Polish composer. Lutosławski, a pre-eminent European artist of the 20th century, will be shown in a documentary made recently by two international experts on his music, Esa-Pekka Salonen and Steven Stucky, who took a trip to Poland to explore aspects of the artist's life. After the film, the rich Partita for Violin and Piano will be performed by School of Music students Allion Abraham Salvador and Josh Archibald-Seiffer. Finally, acclaimed pianists Dr. Ivona Kaminska and Dr. Christopher Bowlby will perform a perennial favorite - Lutosławski's Variations on a Theme by Paganini for Two Pianos.
