The Cracow Golden Quintet – 2nd prize winners of the Stanisław Moniuszko International Competition of Polish Music in Rzeszów, organised by the National Institute of Music and Dance – will perform on 15 November 2021 at 7.30 p.m. in the NOSPR series "Youth's Stage".
The "Youth's Stage" pulsates with energy and enthusiasm of debutants, for whom the performance at the NOSPR is an important moment on their way to a great career – these are concerts for everyone who prefer musical discoveries and sprouting talents to established names.
The Cracow Golden Quintet's repertoire covers both classical and popular music ranging from the classical era all the way to the contemporary. The group specialise in performing and promoting the musical output of Poland. That particular repertoire consists of pieces by Grażyna Bacewicz, Wojciech Kilar, Michał Spisak, and Tadeusz Szeligowski, among others, and is continually extended, especially to include music which has been forgotten and rarely performed onstage. Another field of Cracow Golden Quintet’s activity is premiering and recording 20th and 21st-century works. Acclaimed both domestically and internationally, the group have earned several awards and has performed at prestigious concert halls all over the world. In 2020, DUX released the ensemble’s first album, featuring works by Polish composers which was nominated for the 'Fryderyk' 2021 phonographic awards in the 'Chamber Music Album of the Year' category.
The programme of the upcoming concert will include Wojciech Kilar's Quintet for wind instruments, Józef Świder's Mini-Quintetto, as well as Jacques Ibert's Trois pièces brèves, Malcolm Arnold's Three Shanties and Júlia Medaglia's Belle epoque en Sud-America.
