This will be concert of astronomical dimensions! We will hear Dance of Celestial Spheres, composed by Adam Wesołowski – the director of the Silesian Philharmonic to celebrate 550th anniversary of birth of Nicolaus Copernicus, and the Angels Songs penned by the same author. The latter piece lasts as long as it takes the light to travel from the Sun to the Earth. The second part of the concert will be taken by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki’s vocal and instrumental Symphony No. 2 “Copernican” written on the famous astronomer’s 500th birth anniversary and containing excerpts from De revolutionibus orbium coelestium.

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.
