New Year's Eve Concert at the Warsaw Philharmonic

FNThe Warsaw Philharmonic invites you on 31 December 2020 at 8.00 p.m. to the New Year's Eve Concert, which will be broadcast online.

Fans of the Warsaw Philharmonic surely need no persuading that this is one of the best venues to spend a pleasant and memorable evening on New Year’s Eve. Let us bid farewell to 2020, which has been a truly traumatic and tragic year in so many ways, and let beautiful music fill us with hope and optimism for the coming twelve months.

The programme will feature lighter but unfailingly ambitious music, many surprises and amazing arrangements. Alongside works by Antonin Dvořák and Johannes Brahms we will hear music be a number of Polish composers, including Stanisław Moniuszko, Henryk Pachulski and Władysław Szpilman. Of special interest will be the first ever contemporary performance of Roman Statkowski’s Polonaise in B flat Major, Op. 20, dedicated to Emil Młynarski and his wife. In this way the Warsaw Philharmonic will pay tribute to one of its founders and its first director, the 150th anniversary of whose birth was celebrated in 2020.
