In online format. Watch our recent productions:
Pieces for 4 hands by Ferdinand Ries (pupil of Beethoven who wrote maybe the most brilliant polonaises before Chopin), Ogiński (in my new arrangement), Elsner, Dussek (the great sonata op. 48) and Piazzola. And a piano contest with two participants - Erard and Pleyel. The obligatory piece is also by Dussek (the sonata for 2 pianos in F Major). Wonderful instruments, great experience for us.
Baroque and classical music performed with my friends and chamber music partners: Łukasz Długosz and Agata Kielar Długosz.

Two wonderful alternative (to Mozart and Pergolesi) settings of Stabat Mater and Requiem.
Heinrich Biber's Requiem in the most unusual tonality of F Minor is an amazing and touching piece. Just to say that the 1st violin part is written above the vocal parts ...
And Caldara'a Stabat Mater is an equally interesting alternative to well known Pergolesi's masterwork.
The pieces will be presented twice - in Strzegom (August, 28th) and Cracow (September, 3rd).
Not easy to survive for any performing musician as performing musician during the lockdown. In order to stay sane I started to record short films. You’ll find several playlists exploring different aspects of early keyboard music and historical keyboards like: „Exploring Scheidemann with Marek Toporowski”, „Music Lesson with Marek Toporowski” or „Klein aber fein” („Those charming small keyboards”). Don’t hesitate to pop in!
