Występ zespołu polskiego "Klavitarre".

Duet Klavitarre, który tworzą Jolanta (fortepian) i Maciej (gitara) Ziemscy, istnieje od 5 lat. Oboje artyści ukończyli tą samą, łódzką Akademię Muzyczną. To właśnie w Łodzi odkryli w sobie pasję wspólnego interpretowania muzyki. Ciekawe zestawienie dwóch instrumentów - gitary klasycznej i fortepianu - tworzy bogatą paletę brzmień. Zaskakujące aranżacje są zapowiedzią niezapomnianych doznań artystycznych. Repertuar duetu Klavitarre obejmuje utwory od baroku po utwory pisane przez współcześnie żyjących kompozytorów. Ich własne opracowania utworów A. Piazzoliego, R. Dyensa, F. Chopina, M. Moszkowskiego, A. Tansmana, I. Albeniza i in. kompozytorów są swoistą nowością na rynku muzycznym. Artyści koncertowali w wielu krajach, m.in. w Niemczech (gdzie obecnie mieszkają), we Francji, Włoszech, Hiszpanii, Rumunii, a także w USA.

Kuchnia bedzie otwarta od 17:30.
