Amongst images – that’s the focus of the Cracovian prologue of the 21st Ludwig van Beethoven Easter Festival; although the event decamped to Warsaw thirteen years ago, it makes a regular return to its roots. This year’s theme, “Beethoven and the Fine Arts”, focuses on musical works inspired by painting. We will hear the orchestral version of Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, resounding at the Kraków Philharmonic on 28 March. The star of the concert will be the Storioni Trio from the Netherlands, accompanied by Sinfonietta Cracovia. The Dutch guests also perform on 29 March at the Gallery of the 19th-century Polish Art in Sukiennice, presenting piano trios by Beethoven, Schumann and Dvořák. A traditional exhibition of music manuscripts at the Jagiellonian Library opens at noon on 27 March. The inauguration is accompanied by a piano recital by Łukasz Krupiński, who performs again at Sukiennice in the evening. (Barbara Skowrońska)
