The Power of Voices

Following the series of virtuoso concerts featuring outstanding instrumentalists, the Kraków Philharmonic presents distinguished music perfect for contemplation and meditation. The focus is on polyphonic singing. On 3 and 4 March, the Kraków Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, under the baton of Gabriel Chmura, perform the dazzling Ein deutsches Requiem, Johannes Brahms’s unique composition combining theatrical impetus with lyrical meditation. The solo parts are sung by the soprano Małgorzata Olejniczak-Worobiej and the baritone Michał Partyka. On 18 March, the Kraków Philharmonic Choir performs a cappella with a concert of Nordic music. Under the baton of the world-famous choir director Jan Łukaszewski, we will hear works including Edvard Grieg’s Psalms.

Kraków Philharmonic Hall

ul. Zwierzyniecka 1

Besides their weekly symphony concerts, the Kraków Philharmonic also organises master recitals and educational concerts for children and young people.

The Karol Szymanowski Philharmonic Hall in Kraków was the first philharmonic to open in Poland after the Second World War. Besides the weekly symphony concerts, it organises master recitals and educational concerts for children and young people, while the summer meetings with music assume the form of chamber concerts of slightly lighter character. A hallmark of the Kraków Philharmonic repertoire is its programme of oratorios, which the Philharmonic can present thanks to its extensive and varied lineup: the orchestra, mixed choir, and boys choir. The Kraków Philharmonic has become recognised for its promotion of the works of Karol Szymanowski in Poland and abroad.

The Philharmonic Hall frequently hosts concerts by special guests, for example, at major festivals.
