The Academy of Music (Akademia Muzyczna im. Krzysztofa Pendereckiego) was founded in 1888. It is regarded as equivalent to a university and gained its current name and status in 1979. Krzysztof Penderecki is a former Rector of the Academy. There are three faculties: • Faculty of Composition, Interpretation and Music Education; • Instrumental Faculty; • Faculty of Vocal Music and Drama. There are also Institutes of Church Music, and Music Analysis and Interpretation. The library is organising a collection of the manuscripts of Polish composers of the past 200 years. Concerts are held in the Bronislaw Rutkowski Hall (the ‘Florianka’) at the Academy. An academic journal 'Vive' is published regularly. Facilities include a state-of-the-art electronic music and recording studio.
