Our stage is not often visited by the masters of two unusual instruments: the vibraphone – Bernard Maseli
, and the accordion – Marcin Wyrostek
. This evening we will hear them in the unique project Schaeffer's Era (Era Schaeffera), which has been aiming to popularize Bogusław Schaeffer's music for years.

It will be an evening with Scheffer's achievements that fall outside all classification and a meeting with virtuosos who will try to prove that the boundaries between music, theatre, dance and painting do not really exist.
