11.00 – 12.30 Panel discussion: 'Piotr Janowski in Memoriam'    Chair: Renata Suchowiejko

Piotr Janowski (1951-2008), recognized violinist, 1st Prize Winner of the 5th International Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition, Irena Dubiska and Jascha Heifetz’s student and prized pedagogue. He left an indelible mark in the memory of listeners thanks to his magnificent interpretations and original artistic personality. His recordings are a living testimony to his great musical talent and musical sensitivity, which became a basis of his performing practice – developed for years through concert activity in Europe and the United States.
Memorial of Piotr Janowski, supplemented by recordings and artist statements, will be the starting point for further discussions on modern violin performing practice in the context of 19th-century virtuosity tradition. These considerations will take into account three issues: 1. Performing practice; 2. Virtuoso Repertoire; 3. Didactics.

Following musicologists and violinists participated in the panel discussion: Bartosz Bryła (Poznań), Michał Grabarczyk (Poznań),  Józef Kolinek (Warszawa), Jan Stanienda (Wrocław), Adam Wagner (Katowice). Mrs. Joanna Maklakiewicz was a guest of the panel discussion.
