Ladies and Gentlemen,

for many years we have been watching the dynamic development of music competitions in Poland and in Europe. Their increased popularity is certainly a quality typical of the lifestyle nowadays. An urge to win a prize, to achieve a success facilitating the start and access to the difficult and demanding musical market, and consequently, a greater artistic potential, make young people actively attend the competitions. Do, however, only the laureates benefit from the rivalry? Certainly not, although winning the title of a laureate is an obvious success. Participation in the competition is, first of all, an opportunity to meet young people, musicians from a lot of national and foreign centres, to make new contacts, to attentively listen and analyse other participants’ performance.


The Competition in Dąbrowa Górnicza – associated with Michał Spisak, who was born in this city – certainly is an important national initiative. The works of Spisak – one of the most important 20th century Polish composers, an outstanding creator of neo-classicism – are still rarely found in the repertoire of Polish orchestras, ensembles and soloists. Therefore, the creation of the competition is a significant achievement of all those who decided to build a musical monument for him in his hometown. Having completed the Conservatory in Katowice, Michał Spisak left for Paris, where he continued learning. He spent his whole mature artistic life there, creating and promoting Poland in one of the most important music centres of Europe. Today, young musicians come to the city of birth of this great Polish creator in order to acquire new experiences here, to broaden their mind and to face the noble rivalry.


This year’s, tenth competition focuses on the art of playing the flute, trumpet and cello. We believe that it will be fruitful not only to the laureates, but also all the participants and listeners, and to the city and region it will be the confirmation of its meaning in the musical culture of the country.
