The Institute of Musicology of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The programme of the celebrations includes a scientific conference, gala concerts, a visit to the Institute’s new premises on the Morasko Campus and the presentation of a jubilee exhibition.
Alongside Musicology at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow (founded in 1911) and Musicology at the Jan Kazimierz University in Lwów (1912), the Institute of Musicology at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań is one of the oldest university institutions of this kind in Poland.
The genesis of Poznan Musicology almost symbolically coincides with the restoration of Polish statehood after the long period of partitions. The serious impulse for its establishment in the newly revived Republic (1919/1920) was given by Father Dr Wacław Gieburowski, a well-known conductor of choral ensembles and music theoretician, who conducted a series of lectures on historical-musical topics at the then University of Poznań.
