On the last weekend of March, Katowice will once again become the capital of New Music!
For 24-26 March 2017, the NOSPR has scheduled a special event: The Festival of Premieres Polish Modern Music.
This year’s seventh edition of the festival will present premiere performances of nearly 30 works by Polish composers of various generations, from young novices to doyens of Polish art of composition.
Organised by the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, the festival will host some foremost Polish ensembles, such as the AUKSO, the Camerata, Silesian String Quartet, and the New Music Orchestra, as well as soloists: Daniel Costello, Barbara Kinga Majewska, Alina Mleczko, Piotr Orzechowski, Geneviève Strosser, and Hannah Weisbach.
The Festival of Premieres, a biennial festival of Polish modern music, has been organised in Katowice since 2005. Its originator was Joanna Wnuk-Nazarowa, Director General of the NOSPR. The event owes its unique character primarily to the main idea of the programme – only works which have never been performed or which so far have not had their Polish premiere can be presented during the festival concerts.
During the seven concerts of this year’s edition of the festival, the audience will hear the works of eminent Polish composers, such as Rafał Augustyn, Zbigniew Bargielski, Ryszard Gabryś, Zygmunt Krauze, Hanna Kulenty-Majoor, Krzysztof Meyer, and Piotr Moss.
Tickets available in the box office of NOSPR and online!
