Adam Mickiewicz Insitute announces digital tribute to Penderecki9:52, 20th May 2020
The Adam Mickiewicz Institute (AMI) has announced Penderecki’s Garden, a digital project celebrating the life and legacy of Penderecki.
The project, which launches on 23 November 2020, the anniversary of the composer’s birthday, will be continually updated and aims to pay tribute to Penderecki’s memory.
The tribute takes the form of a virtual interactive garden, referring to Penderecki’s interest in gardening and horticulture. Users will be able to ‘walk’ in the garden, immersing themselves in pieces inspired by Penderecki or written as tributes to him.
Barbara Schabowska, acting director of AMI said: ‘Gardening was one of Krzysztof Penderecki’s greatest passions. Through this project, we are paying tribute to him as a composer and a great humanist. It won’t be just another information database.
‘PendereckisGarden.pl is going to be a virtual place of leisure, where visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the Polish composer, to play a music memory game, to compose their own mini-piece, or to listen to a live concert while sitting under a virtual tree.’
