openARTed by Monika Mašanauskaitė – They came to see blood, they saw blood

A podcast exploring why making art can be more practical than we think. Creatives from all around the world share their artistic journeys and explore the impact it has on their everyday lives.


A conversation with polish pianist and influential thinker Anna Szałucka.

Have you ever been on stage and lost yourself completely? I think we all have, at least once. Anna had this experience too. “…I got this blackout, I just stopped. I looked at the audience and I said ‘I’m sorry, I don’t know what happened’. Everyone was dead silent”. Listen to the full story of what happened after Anna finished one of the most difficult piece from piano repertoire the Beethoven’s “Hammerklavier”.
