Individual activities offered in the Music Space in August

Treat yourself to an unforgettable experience of learning the art of playing 88 keys with 4 hands or, to put it simply, sharing the same instrument with another player. Or maybe you are looking for a place to relax and unwind? Our Music Space can be booked for 1-hour sessions of meditation, quiet time and relaxation accompanied by soothing music. All of our friends who love music are welcome to register for the activities held at the National Library during the month of August.

88 keys, 4 hands

You will get a chance to familiarize yourself with ten music scores ranging from simple ensembles for beginners to piano duet music by such composers as L. van Beethoven, J. S. Bach, M. Reger, etc. Depending on their mood, taste and level of fluency, everyone will be able to try out and learn to play a folk dance tune, a classical play, a laid-back ragtime or a passionate tango piece...

Piano four hands is a deep-rooted parlour tradition. The first works for piano duets emerged in Germany in Austria in the 18th century; later they gained popularity in the rest of Europe. In the first half of the 20th century this genre was undeservedly abandoned. The period after the Second World War saw revived interest in the Baroque and chamber music. Today playing an instrument at home or in concert venues where two players share a single instrument is again a very popular performance technique. Invite your friends, siblings, children, parents, pupils or teachers to join you for this unforgettable music session. Experience the wonderful feeling of sharing the same instrument with someone else in a four-hands piano piece.

An hour of relaxation enjoying music

Sometimes we want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city life and enjoy a few quiet moments of relaxation. We usually think of the library as a silent and peaceful place. Aside from the public, educational and art events and concerts we also offer individual spaces meant for a variety of activities. You can now spend your time in a cosy environment and enjoy background music that you can choose from the constantly updated play list. Everyone will find their favourite music here – from nature sounds, birds chirping, sound of the sea, calm classical, electronic or ambient music or otherworldly music or sounds as if coming from a nearby countryside. Enjoy ethnic music from around the globe, specially compiled sound meditations or other music records of your choice.

Dive into the world of music. Summer is a perfect time for music immersion.
