Wold-class artists – Cameron Carpenter, Rafael Payare, Jerzy Stuhr – will take part in the 7th Krzysztof Penderecki International Festival – level 320 in Zabrze on September 14-19, 2019.
The Festival will be inaugurated by Maestro Penderecki himself. He will conduct his Adagio from the Symphony No.3 for string orchestra and Mazur from Moniuszko's opera The Haunted Manor, in the year of the celebrations of the composer's 200th birth anniversary. Rafael Payare, director of the famous San Diego Symphony Orchestra, together with Sinfonietta Cracovia – who celebrates 25th anniversary this year – will interpret Penderecki's Symphony No. 4 'Adagio' and Schuman's Symphony No. 4.
The concert on 15 September will feature Cameron Carpenter, whom the American press described as "one of the rare musicians who changes the game of his instrument". The artist will present his renditions of Bach, Poulenc and Penderecki, playing on specially constructed organs that he will bring to Zabrze. The Festival will end on 19 September with a famous interpretation of The double bass play by Patrick Süskind, directed and acted by Jerzy Stuhr. All events will take place 320 meters underground in the Guido Mine.
