Unmatched energy and exceptional understanding of music regardless of the epoch it originates from – these features make Aleksandra Świgut an outstanding musician, who plays on both modern and early instruments with the same ease. "A sensitive and mature musician" – this is how Dariusz Marciniszyn characterised Jakub Kuszlik in one of the recital reviews. Just before the young pianists start their race in the 18th Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition we can hear them play at the Kraków Philharmonic performing works of Polish greatest composer.

Kraków Philharmonic Hall

ul. Zwierzyniecka 1

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.
