This year, the Sinfonietta Cracovia orchestra in collaboration with the London Sinfonietta launches a brand new concert cycle Sinfonietta Nova which aims at exploring new fields of music. Three Sinfonietta Nova 2024 concerts brings meetings with soloists from the British ensemble and some thrilling repertoire of music by British and American composers and the trance sounds of the strings.

In the first concert of the cycle entitled London Calling featuring Jonathan Morton, the concertmaster of the London Sinfonietta, we will hear works by Krzysztof Penderecki, excerpts from the monumental soundtrack to the Oscar-winning film There Will Be Blood and the world premiere of Zygmunt Ktauze's new work with the composer himself playing the piano.

The curator of the Sinfonietta Nova cycle in 2024 is Andrew Burke, the chief executive and artistic director of the London Sinfonietta.
