Strauss demanded that none of his sons pursue careers in music, despite their obvious talent. Johann II was meant to study banking, for his brother Josef a military career, and Eduard was expected to join the Austrian consulate. Defiantly, they all became musicians and Johann II’s success and popularity eclipsed his father’s. Without this family, the one and only in the history of music, our world would lack many beautiful marches, polkas and most of all – waltzes. We will hear some of them during the Kraków Philharmonic New Year’s Eve and New Year’s concerts. Let’s enter the new year Viennese style!

In programme: the Strauss family hits and famous choral opera parts

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.
