8th International Sfogato Music & Arts Festival

sThe 8th International Sfogato Music & Arts Festival will take place between September 28 and December 6, 2017. It is the only regular festival event in Krakow, for which the music and the creative personality of Frederic Chopin is the main inspiration.

This symbolized the name of the event – "Sfogato" – the Italian word used for the first time by Frederic Chopin as a musical term to describe one epizode of his Barcarolle in F sharp major, Op. 60. Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz interpreted sfogato epizode, definited by Chopin with an adjective dolce, as a moment that brings catharsis, ecstasy and purification. By using this parallel he referred to the function, which art, and music, served in ancient times. The aim of the festival is to present the multifaceted role of music and art in human life.

This year's edition will be inaugurated by „Chopin Soirée” at 6 p.m. at Villa Decius (17a 28 Lipca 1943 Street). On October 22 at St. Adalbert's Church there will be a recital performed by violinist Marek Polanski and organist Michal Bialko. The programme also includes Piano Workshops organized with MARTATELIER.CO, International Sfogato Ringtone & Signal Composition Competition and Scientific Conference: Psychology. Music – Art – Media.
