Beethoven’s symphonies, Handel’s English oratorios, Verdi’s operas – if we were to add Arcangelo Corelli to this list, his name would be followed by concerto grosso. The Italian master’s cycle of twelve Concerti grossi Op. 6 creates a canonical standard of the genre: a Baroque instrumental concerto for small group of soloists and full orchestra. We will hear his masterpieces performed by Capella Cracoviensis during three concerts at Cricoteka, featuring almost the entire cycle (with the exception of No. 8). Corelli’s compositions are intertwined with works by Bach (2 November), Vivaldi and Leo (9 November) and Valentini and Graupner (16 November).

Cricoteka Centre for Documentation of the Art of Tadeusz Kantor

ul. Nadwiślańska 2

Successive rounds of the permanent exhibition in the former power plant present the ideas central to the work of Tadeusz Kantor.

Tadeusz Kantor (1915–90) – one of the most important theatrical artists and reformers of the 20th century – chose Kraków as the place both to work and live in. Although the premieres of the legendary Cricot 2 Theatre were held in various European cities and the productions travelled the whole world, their director always returned to the city in the shadow of Wawel. Conscious of the significance of his artistic legacy, he set up “a living archive” here: the Cricoteka. After the death of the artist, the operations of the Cricot 2 might have been suspended, yet the Cricoteka continues to organise exhibitions, symposia, performances, workshops, and meetings, at the same time publishing materials devoted to Kantor’s art. Its home is the former power plant of Podgórze “wrapped” in a modern construction. The exhibition halls are suspended over the roof of the historical building, and the café situated on the top floor commands a panorama of the city, extending over the other side of the Vistula. One by one, the mutations of the permanent exhibition present the crucial ideas in the art of Tadeusz Kantor. Objects used in the theatre, props, sketches, photographs from the Cricoteka collection, and videos and recordings of productions accompanying them portray the successive stages in the development of his theatre. The temporary exhibitions of contemporary art organised here are references to the artist’s oeuvre.

The Gallery – Studio of Tadeusz Kantor at ul. Sienna 7, where the artist spent the last years of his life, is also part of Cricoteka. Visitors are welcome to the room that the artist made his home and place of work, and a gallery presenting the cycles of his drawings.
