Orchestra and Choir of the Karol Szymanowski Philharmonic in Kraków will open the new season at Cavatina Hall in a repertoire of the Romantic era. The programme includes Beethoven and Mendelssohn – works by the most important composers of all time performed by the Kraków Philharmonic on 3 September 2022 in the main hall of Cavatina Hall.
The Karol Szymanowski Philharmonic Orchestra began its activity in February 1945, as the first Polish symphony orchestra after the end of World War II. In the years 1988-90, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic was Krzysztof Penderecki, who from 1993 held the position of Honorary Artistic Director.
Currently, Alexander Humala serves as Artistic Director. He graduated in choral conducting at the Belarusian State Academy of Music in Minsk and symphonic conducting at the Rotterdam Conservatory and is a winner of many competitions.
The Choir of the Karol Szymanowski Philharmonic has been appreciated by the audience, reviewers and collaborating conductors, and its foreign tours have earned it the opinion of an “ambassador of Polish culture”.
The choir has participated in many international celebrations, such as the concert in the Vatican on the 10th anniversary of John Paul II’s pontificate, in Berlin in 1990 on the occasion of German reunification, or in 1995 in Oświęcim during the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
