Paweł Majewski, Ada Arendt, Marcin Bogucki, Kornelia Sobczak-12%
Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego
The book presents the history of the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition narrated from the anthropological-cultural perspective and based on extensive source material, which enabled the authors to explore the less known aspects of one of the most important music competitions in the world. It is worthy of note that the authors use extensive source material: quotations from press releases (dailies, weeklies, music magazines) and official speeches, excerpts from critical and musicological texts, reviews, memoirs, diaries, official reports, foreign press reports, materials from the Polish Film Chronicle, documentaries, private and official correspondence, advertisements, radio announcements and internet forums. The work undertaken to reach and use the sources and the quotes reflects great credit on the authors (Professor Waldemar Kuligowski). The book is a pioneering project in many respects. Although there is an extensive factual literature on the Chopin Competition, and numerous anecdotal sources, valuable for analysis, have been published, the history of the Chopin Competition has not been explored from the cultural history perspective and no attempts have been made to present it as a cultural phenomenon sensu stricto, adopting methodological approaches of modern humanities. It is such an attempt that the authors have made in this case (Professor Krzysztof Moraczewski). ********* Chopinowskie igrzysko. Historia Międzynarodowego Konkursu Pianistycznego im. Fryderyka Chopina 1927-2015 Książka prezentuje historię Konkursu Chopinowskiego opowiedzianą z perspektywy antropologiczno-kulturoznawczej i opartą na obszernym materiale źródłowym. Dzięki temu autorki i autorzy mogli opisać mało dotychczas znane aspekty dziejów najważniejszego w Polsce i jednego z najważniejszych na świecie konkursów muzycznych. Zwraca uwagę korzystanie z bardzo szerokiej gamy źródeł. Mamy bowiem w pracy cytaty z relacji prasowych (gazety codzienne, tygodniki, czasopisma muzyczne), fragmenty oficjalnych wystąpień, wyimki z tekstów krytycznych i muzykologicznych, fachowe recenzje, wspomnienia, dzienniki, raporty urzędnicze, zagraniczne doniesienia agencyjne, Polską Kronikę Filmową, dokumenty filmowe, prywatną i oficjalną korespondencję, anonse prasowe, radiowe zapowiedzi, a także fora internetowe. Zasługą autorów jest wykonana w dotarciu do tych źródeł praca, ale też umiejętne z nich korzystanie i rozsądne dawkowanie cytowań (Z recenzji prof. Waldemara Kuligowskiego). Książka stanowi przedsięwzięcie pod wieloma względami pionierskie. Chociaż na temat Konkursu Chopinowskiego istnieje literatura faktograficzna, a także opublikowano wiele źródeł o charakterze anegdotycznym, czasem bardzo wartościowych jako materiał do analiz, nie było dotąd próby rozważenia dziejów tego konkursu z perspektywy historii kulturowej, ukazania go jako zjawiska kulturowego w ścisłym sensie z wykorzystaniem podejść badawczych i propozycji metodologicznych przyjętych we współczesnej humanistyce. Z taką właśnie próbą mamy do czynienia w tym wypadku (Z recenzji prof. Krzysztofa Moraczewskiego).

Tsar Peter (927-969), the book’s protagonist, is all too frequently presented in modern scholarship as a weak ruler, devoid of any grander political aspirations, focused on religious matters, indeed - pious, but neglecting the vital interests of his subjects. It was said that during his reign both his court and state became Byzantinised, that the central authority was completely helpless in the face of Hungarian raids...
