The first concert that promoted the album ‘Ave Maria’ was given at the Lubomirski Castle in Nowy Wiśnicz, in the place where the record had been recorded. The programme of the concert covered the entire repertoire from the newly released CD. During the event three world premieres of the pieces composed especially for ‘Puellae Orantes’ to the album took place. These were the works of Paweł Łukaszewski, Marcel Chyrzyński, Miłosz Bembinow, Łukasz Farcinkiewicz and the Candian composer of Philippines origin –Louie Madrid Calleja.
