Apart from the Gala-Concert, we have given another truly great public, so called – Chamber Concert, which included tens of the solo productions. At the photo above (at the left side): Ms Hanna Pankova before the 1st Part of the very big Sonata in b flat of S. Rachmaninov. On the right: the very intensive work at the classes yet, is the most real core of our Course-work. Here on the photo: Ms Joanna Sobota working on the Ballad in g of F. Chopin.


Honest friendship and smile could easily be interpreted the as most significant marks of our Courses, as are the real artistic professionalism and a sincere passion for the music making.
