Poland Now – this thought seems to be the guideline of the concert series Polish Music Stage, co-organised by the National Institute of Music and Dance, and philharmonic institutions across Poland. We will hear Polish artists interpreting oeuvre by Polish composers, with emphasis on rarely performed works.

Therefore, the repertoires bring a broad spectrum of Polish music to the Kraków Philharmonic: from Baroque music by Jarzębski to giants of the second half of the 20th century: Penderecki, Górecki and Lutosławski, from those who left Poland for various reasons (Weinberg, Tansman), to those who at various points of their lives chose it as their home (Subissati, Luparini).

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.
