Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote his Requiem in D minor in 1791, however he didn’t manage to finish it before his death; the others finished it for him. The mystery surrounding the anonymous commission from an “unknown, gray stranger” and the claims that Mozart came to believe that he was writing the requiem for his own funeral make this wonderful piece all the more fascinating and emotionally stirring.
Just before the All Saints’ Day, the Kraków Philharmonic presents Mozart’s masterpiece, one of the most beautiful mourning masses in the history of music.
The soloists and Kraków Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir will be led by Benjamin Lévy Gabriel Feltz, Generalmusikdirektor of the Dortmund Opera and Chiefconductor of the Dortmund Philharmonic Orchestra.

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.
