65th International Festival of Contemporary Music Warsaw Autumn
16-24 September 2022
This event is recommended by the Polish Cultural Institute New York.
CONNECTIONS – is the watchword of this year’s, 65th edition of the ‘Warsaw Autumn’. We work as a team, bringing together the efforts of performers, programmers, and organisers. Connections are constructive, in defiance of the engineering of social divisions. We are with Ukraine and its artists. We present music that is not indifferent to the struggle with life’s hardships and solitude, brought about both by large-scale processes and by everyday life.
Warsaw Autumn (Warszawska Jesień) is a festival with a long tradition and a true witness to music history. It is the only contemporary music festival in Poland on an international scale and with an international status. For many years, it was the only event of this kind in Central and Eastern Europe. Nonetheless, it remains a living organism: it thrives as much as Polish cultural funding and the general condition of music allow. The Festival is organised by the Polish Composers’ Union. The Repertoire Committee, an independent body appointed by the Union’s Board, determines the program of each edition of the festival. Warsaw Autumn is, therefore, an international and nonprofit festival of a nongovernmental association.
