A rendez-vous with Polish composers will mark the next Ghent Festival

Polish composer Zbigniew Preisner will be the guest of honor in the next edition of the International Flemish Cinema Festival which makes Ghent the world's capital city of film music, year by year. Festival organizers have already announced that there will be a special concert on October the 20th to rend honor to Polish composers.

The work of Preisner will be revisited through this concert, together with the music of Jan A.P. Kaczmarek and Wojciech Kilar, who have also been invited to attend the meeting.

The Festival's concert will be played at the Flemish Opera of Ghent, where Dirk Brossé and Krzysztof Herdziny will conduct the National Orchestra of Belgium. The first part of the program will include a suite with film images, and the second part will tribute Preisner's music.
