Mazurka of a Polish Soul

The mazurka has been danced by people since the Middle Ages and it is not an accident that the Polish national anthem is based on a mazur dance. The mazurka is considered a dance of the Polish soul and has been composed by many established composers worldwide.

In 2021 Anna Kijanowska commissioned over twenty mazurkas by internationally renowned artists with a special emphasis on female and under-appreciated composers. It is Anna’s vision that these newly commissioned works of the 21st century will become a musical legacy for future generations, and the „Dance of a Polish Soul“ will continue to strive.
