Dear pianists, dear guests of the Academy,
We are very happy to welcome you to the first edition of the Bacewicz International Summer Music Academy in Łódź! The creation of BISMA is an exciting and ambitious project that we have been nurturing for a long time before its realisation. We have tried to use our own experiences as participants of many masterclasses around the world to create a perfect environment for every participant of our academy. We are honoured to have two of the greatest piano professors in the world as part of our teaching faculty as well as two young musicians, who despite their age, have started a successful teaching career at some of the most renowned Music Conservatoires in Europe.
We encourage pianists from all over the world to apply for the first edition of the Bacewicz International Summer Music Academy in Łódź and we are certain it will have a great positive impact on the cultural life of the city of Łódź and Poland. We are looking forward to welcoming all of you!

RECTOR OF THE GRAZYNA AND KIEJSTUT BACEWICZ ACADEMY OF MUSIC IN ŁÓDŹ
Dear musicians, ladies and gentlemen!
It is my great pleasure to invite all pianists who desire to perfect their performance technique under the guidance of extraordinary artists and professors to participate in the Bacewicz International Summer Music Academy (BISMA). The Grażyna and Kiejstut Bacewicz Academy of Music in Łódź is an Art Universtity where tradition and history meet innovation. The classic, carefully restored interiors of Izrael Poznański's Palace and the remaining two modern buildings (the Concert Hall and the educational building) are home to several dozen new grand pianos from almost every renowned international piano manufacturer. It brings me joy that the participants of BISMA shall benefit of such immense historical and musical surroundings.
I hope the combination of the extraordinary professors and the unique atmosphere of the rich interiors combined with state-of-the-art instruments allow our participants to feel inspired and greatly refine their musicianship and leave them with a memorable impression of their stay at our Academy and in the city of Łódź.
