We’ve inaugurated our new offices and opened ourselves to the city. At the end of May, the NInA offices have become a hub of cultural activity: concerts, shows, plays, discussions, and workshops. Additionally, we’ve celebrated our 10th birthday — and there’s plenty of reasons to celebrate!
The biggest collection of works by Poland’s three masters: Witold Lutosławski, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, and Krzysztof Penderecki. It comprises both widely known pieces and works that are nearly forgotten: grand performances and pieces of stage music, as well as scores written for movies, plays, and radio, even some popular tunes — totalling over 320 recordings and 380 descriptions.
The online project highlights the richness of European contemporary music by tracing the stories of four eminent composers: Louis Andriessen, Pierre Boulez, Arvo Pärt and Kazimierz Serocki. Through accessible themes, quizzes and, most importantly, a wealth of music, MiM reaches out to a broad audience in a new and engaging way. At the same time users with a background in music will be able to discover interesting storylines as well as delightful footage.
The NInA Archives consist of thousands of analog and digital media holding important masterpieces of Polish culture, including films by Krzysztof Kieślowski, theater plays by Krystian Lupa, and Krzysztof Penderecki’s concerts.
Forget about YouTube and bittorrent. NINATEKA is a collection of over five thousand films, theater performances, concerts, radio programs and news programs available legally and for free wherever there’s an internet connection.
