Chopin’s nocturnes, ballads and preludes clash with trumpet, saxophone, electric guitar, jazzy piano and violin. What will come out of this clash? Chopin’s brilliant compositions were taken on by Stanisław Słowinski, a Krakow-based violinist and a star of the European jazz and crossover scene. This is how the Słowiński X Chopin - Impressions project emerged, allowing the artist and his InfraArt Chamber Orchestra to showcase their original renditions of the Funeral March op. 72 and the Etude in C minor, op. 10 no. 12, better known as The Revolutionary Etude. These new renditions offer room for piano mastery (with Franciszek Raczkowski behind the keyboard), as well as orchestral sounds coupled with the expression and freedom of jazz improvisation. So... Słowiński X Chopin. Can they be combined? Of course!

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.
