With a truly International and diverse audience attended by Councillor Daryl Brown, Mayoress of Hammersmith and Fulham with her consort Benito Brown, and Mr Jerzy Uklanski the Polish Consul, Tadashi Imai’s piano recital of Polish composers was outstanding. His background description on each piece captured the history and mood of the time and of the composers lives adding a dimension of empathy to the passionate music created during Poland’s partitioning and strong desire for independence.
Congratulations to the Polish Heritage Society UK on the successful and well attended 6th Conference hosted by the Polish Embassy in London. The presentations about Poland restoring her independence in November 1918 after 123 years of partitioning, together with the mood in the international arena at the time were very interesting. Our Institute was proud to participate with Anna Stefanicka giving an outstanding portrayal about the important contribution of women in Pilsudski's little known about "secret army".
