Kraków | 3rd Kraków Music Salon: Moniuszko – Żeleński


The Association of Polish Chamber Musicians invites you to the 3rd Festival "Krakow Music Salon: Moniuszko – Żeleński", which will take place betwwen 24 October and 23 November 2019.

To this day the festival is the largest regular event promoting the work of Władysław Żeleński. This year's edition will be devoted not only to Żeleński, but also to Stanisław Moniuszko on the occasion of his 200th birth anniversary. Both composers highly contributed to the development of Polish songwriting, which is why the festival programme will include three vocal recitals, as well as an orchestra concert with arrangements of Moniuszko's songs, recitals of piano duo, reed trio and string quartet, lectures on the songs of Moniuszko and Żeleński, and Polish songwriting in the 20th century.

The list of performers includes the Messages Quartet, LLLeggiero Woodwind Trio, Ravel Piano Duo, Urszula Kryger, Krzysztof Urbaniak and many others. This year's festival will also promote two CDs: on 17 November Ravel Piano Duo will promote their Polish Kaleidoskope No. 4, while on 21 November soprano Magdalena Molendowska and pianist Julia Samojło will promote the first, complete recording of Zygmunt Stojowski's songs.

Admission to all events is free.
