The International Music Centre at Żelazowa Wola is intended to complement the design of Prof. Franciszek Krzywda-Polkowski and the team of designers behind the memorial park at Żelazowa Wola (see: History of the site), originally meant as a magnet for Chopin devotees, but also as a centre for international artistic, popularising and educational activities. The Centre will make it possible to expand and intensify the daily artistic work, including concerts aimed at visiting tourists, as well as general educational activities and workshops, and also to organise special concerts of the highest artistic standard, including selected concerts in the festival ‘Chopin and his Europe’ and the qualifying round of the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition. Thanks to the excellent proposed acoustic conditions of the concert hall and the fully functional recording facilities, of the highest available technological standard, the Centre will make it possible to record special artistic performances, inspired by the unique atmosphere of the venue: the birthplace of one of the greatest musical geniuses of all time. The investment will allow us to organise masterclass courses, including for pianists, and also artistic workshops, including for youth orchestras. The conference area will hold academic conferences and congresses, art education workshops, thematic symposia and meetings of music associations. Thanks to the universal infrastructure, wide-ranging programme and connection with the Birthplace of Chopin, the Centre should become an active centre radiating around the world, with a harmonious synthesis between the greatest artistry, scholarly knowledge and educational and popularising work, taking account of needs on the international, national, regional and local levels.
