'Adventure continues': Andrzej Kosendiak about the new season

NFM 23 24How the city's musical life was transformed: Andrzej Kosendiak, the director of the National Forum of Music, talks about the educational mission and the artists who will be guests in the new season.

The beginning of a new artistic season at the National Forum of Music is approaching. At the opening of the NFM, the Wrocław Philharmonic will perform the European premiere of the Triple Concerto by Stanisław Skrowaczewski - a famous conductor and an important figure for Wrocław. However, the Philharmonic begins the season without an artistic director.

We have invited many different conductors to cooperate with the Philharmonic in the upcoming season, and it will be a time of searching for a new director. During its inaugural concert, the orchestra will be conducted by Pinchas Steinberg, who has performed at the Vienna State Opera. It will also be managed by, among others, Joel Sandelson, Pascal Rophé and Ainārs Rubiķis. The NFM Orchestra Leopoldinum has already chosen its management. Its artistic director will be the outstanding violinist Alexander Sitkovetsky - an artist recognized all over the world, and extremely interested in promoting our ensemble. Leopoldinum will perform with cellists Mischa Maisky and Daniel Müller-Schott, as well as violinist Alena Baeva. At the New Year's Gala, the orchestra will perform together with the Janoska Ensemble. Also in January, together with the musicians of L.U.C. & Rebel Babel Orchestra, will perform music from the film Chłopi.
