The Festival Chopiniana 2013, organized by Fundación Chopiniana de Buenos Aires, will consist of a series of piano recitals that will take place between August and October 2013 at Palacio Paz, Av. Santa Fe 750. The Festival is sponsored by the Embassy of Poland, as well as by diverse private companies.

During the course of the Festival Chopiniana 2013, an exhibition dedicated to celebrate the 100th birthday of Witold Lutoslawski will  be open to the public. Considered as the most important Polish composer after Frederic Chopin, Lutoslawski is one of the most relevant European authors of the 20th century. The exhibition features photographs, texts, notes, scores, among other objects related to the composer. It will be open during the Festival from 10 am to 6 pm, at the Art Hall of Palacio Paz (Santa Fe 750). On concert days it can be visited before and after the performance.
The exhibition has been co-organized and co-financed by the Association Witold Lutoslawski and the Music and Dance Institute of Poland.
