Sacral music in three instalments. Choral concerts by Dmitry Bortniansky, composer, singer and conductor critical to the musical history of both Ukraine and Russia, with both nations claiming him as their own, represent the top form of the Russian Orthodox Church music of the 18th century. Charles Villiers Stanford’s Magnificat and Te Deum recall the greatest composer of sacral music since Purcell. And to round things up: Requiem in D minor by Anton Bruckner, a devoutly religious man, and composer of numerous sacred works. His Requiem of 1849 is the earliest work Bruckner himself considered worthy of preservation. Three composers and three instalments of sacral music – interpreted by Capella Cracoviensis and Kraków Philharmonic Choir under the baton of Piotr Piwko in the frames of the Musical Bridges project.

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.
