Camille Thomas is the first female cellist to have signed a deal with Deutsche Grammophon and the first cello virtuoso for over forty years joining the acclaimed label. This is testament of the young French/Belgian artist’s extraordinary talent. She appears on 20 and 21 April at the Kraków Philharmonic, performing Richard Strauss’ symphonic poem Don Quixote in which cello represents the main protagonist with viola, tuba and bass clarinet creating a musical vision of the loyal Sancho Pansa. The tale of the knight-errant is accompanied by Vivaldi’s captivating Gloria. The soloists and Orchestra and Choir of the Kraków Philharmonic are led by Charles Olivieri-Munroe.

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.
