The primary objective of the International Stanisław Moniuszko Competition of Polish Music is to promote Polish music worldwide and disseminate the wonderful legacy of Stanisław Moniuszko and other excellent Polish composers amongst a wide spectrum of listeners.
The Competition promotes Polish music written in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, especially newly discovered works that can be restored to concert practice by the participants of the event. The Competition is dedicated to professional musicians, regardless of their age or citizenship.
It aims to disseminate the featured compositions amongst a wide spectrum of international recipients and provide the legacy of the successive generations of Polish composers with appropriate analyses and new editions. The Competition equally endeavours to promote talented musicians who are willing to include lesser-known works written by Polish composers in the repertoire they regularly perform. It was also established to promote Poland as a meeting place of the international public during artistic events.
