2nd Competition

Second All-Polish
Ignacy Jan Paderewski Piano Competition
Bydgoszcz, October 16 – 26, 1986

There were people among the music society of Bydgoszcz for whom Paderewski’s oeuvre was live and worthwhile popularization. Jerzy Sulikowski, Professor of the Academy of Music in Bydgoszcz and Gdańsk and Henryk Martenka, the journalist of “Ilustrowany Kurier Polski” both undertook to reintroduce the competition. The Ministry of Culture and the Arts, the Feliks Nowowiejski Academy of Music, the I. J. Paderewski Pomeranian Philharmonic and the Voivodeship Office and the City Office in Bydgoszcz all undertook to organize and finance the competition, which took place from 16 to 26 October, 1986 in the concert hall of the Pomeranian Philharmonic.

Twenty seven candidates, representing all important academic centers (Warsaw, Gdańsk, Poznań, Katowice, Wrocław, Bydgoszcz) entered the competition and 19 participants competed during the eliminations.
