We can still recall the piano sounds of Szymon Nehring’s recital at the Kraków Philharmonic in January, and March have some more for us in store! The young outstanding Polish pianist returns to the same venue with a symphonic repertoire. The programme of the concert is overtaken by Polish composers: Nehring will perform in Chopin’s and Lutosławski’s pieces, whereas the accompanying Kraków Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Charles Olivieri-Munroe will play also works by Penderecki and Szymanowski.

Karol Szymanowski Concert Overture in E major Op. 12
Witold Lutosławski Variations on a Theme of Paganini
Fryderyk Chopin Grande fantaisie sur des airs polonais in A major Op. 13
Krzysztof Penderecki Symphony No. 2

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.
