This Capella Cracoviensis concert will be sung a cappella. The ensemble combines Renaissance works by Mikołaj Gomółka with 20th-century compositions by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Arvo Pärt. The title of the concert comes from one of Pärt’s works expressing the content of the biblical scene: the story of the woman who poured precious ointment on Jesus’ head.

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.
