Paderewski and World Politics -

a lecture by Marek Zebrowski


This lecture focuses on Paderewski's political activities between 1910 and 1922, his role in the "Front Morges" political formation in Switzerland in the 1930s, and on his last year of life, when Paderewski became a World War I refugee in America. Rare photographs from the Paderewski Paso Robles Collection held at the Polish Music Center, USC, will illustrate the lecture.
