Virtuoso’s precision, captivating charisma and seemingly effortless lightness of the execution ‒ Piotr Anderszewski’s performances are regularly applauded by the audiences of such esteemed venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall or London’s Wigmore Hall. We are extremely pleased to announce, that thanks to our intensified efforts the Polish artist, widely regarded as one of the most outstanding living pianists, will perform in the ICE Krakow Congress Centre on 29 November accompanied by the Sinfonietta Cracovia. Repertoire of the concert ‒ held as a part of the Stars with Sinfonietta and the KBF’s ICE Classic series ‒ will include outstanding works of Mozart and Haydn.


Anderszewski ‒ nicknamed ‘The Polish Sensation’ by the BBC Music Magazine ‒ is a truly extraordinary pianist, constantly enchanting his audiences not only with unmatched technical skills and stylistic elegance, but also with a unique stage personality, reminiscent both of the old cinematic stars’ glamour and the characteristic poise going hand in hand with a talent exceptionnel.

There is no doubt we do have a special evening ahead of us!

Sinfonietta Festival – Sinfonietta is a woman




For centuries underestimated, pushed to the margins of history and treated with a grain of salt in the male dominated world — yet there is no question that women have always been very much present in the world of music. This year’s edition of the Sinfonietta Festival, the Sinfonietta Cracovia’s five-day musical marathon, is dedicated to women: instrumentalists, composers, musicians; both the well-known and the widely appreciated, and those who are still waiting for their rightful place in the pantheon of the all-time musical greats.


The Women’s Rally, Woman is Fickle, Love, Death and the Maiden — these are just some of the intriguing titles of the festival’s concerts planned in truly unconventional formulas. The festival will take place from June 30th to July 4th, mostly in the beautiful gardens and interiors of the National Museum in Krakow, such as the Cloth Hall (Sukiennice) and the famous, mysterious Hotel Cracovia (!), which will open its doors especially for this occasion.

The Venezuelan conductor, also known as one of the most prominent alumnus of the famous El Sistema – alongside such outstanding talents and stage personalities as Gustavo Dudamel — has just accepted the position of a Honorary Guest Conductor of the Sinfonietta Cracovia. On 20 April the Orchestra will inaugurate its unique collaboration with Payare by joint performance at Krakow’s Philharmonic, which — not to anyone’s surprise! — is being held as the next installment of the widely acclaimed Stars with Sinfonietta concert series.

Royal orchestra of the city of Krakow SINFONIETTA CRACOVIA



Orchestra Sinfonietta Cracovia was awarded the ICMA in the Contemporary category for its album Oriental Trumpet Concertos, recorded in collaboration with Gábor Boldoczki under the baton of Jurek Dybał for the Sony Classical label.

Each year almost 500 records are nominated in 23 categories to one of the most prestigious distinction in the classical music world: the International Classic

Music Award, which is awarded annually by a jury, which consists of the representatives of the most influential industry media: critics, academics and journalists associated with such magazines as Andante, Crescendo, Das Orchester, Gramofon, ResMusica, Musik, Theater, Opera, Pizzicato, Rondo Classic or Scherzo.


It is a great privilege and extremely gratifying culmination of my three-year collaboration with the Sinfonietta — says Jurek Dybał, the director of the ensemble. Being awarded the ICMA is even more satisfying due to the fact, that the finalists in our category were artists such as Martin Grubinger or the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. I am delighted, that my long-time friendship with Gábor Boldoczki resulted in the creation of the work, which was highly appreciated by the critics and audiences around the world.


Boldoczki and Sinfonietta encourage listeners to take on a fascinating journey to the sources of music of the Orient by performing works written by four contemporary composers: Krzysztof Penderecki, Fazil Say, Alexander Arutiunian and Aram Khachaturian. In the center of the Oriental Trumpet Concertos musical landscape lies the new Concertino per tromba e orchestra: a truly unique piece dedicated to Boldoczki and co-commissioned by the Sinfonietta Cracovia constitutes a symbolic reference to the distant Armenian roots of the famous Polish composer.


The nearest concert of the Sinfonietta Cracovia is scheduled for Sunday, February 5, when the titled orchestra is to join on stage the Austrian violin virtuoso Benjamin Schmid while performing in the antique interiors of the Krakow’s Sukiennice. The concert with Schmid, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest 21 st centrury intrumentalists, will mark the triumphant return of the famous Viennese with Sinfonietta concert series, which continuously enjoys a great popularity among listeners.
