WYSPIAŃSKI ACCORDING TO KONIECZNY
Orchestra of the Royal Capital City of Krakow is a high profile ensemble, which is famous for its precision and flexibility of a chamber orchestra also in the symphonic set. The beginnings of the Sinfonietta Cracovia are closely related to the creation of the ensemble Young Kraków Chamber Musicians. Remarkable skills, musician’s engagement, and original interpretations resulted in being bestowed the status of a city orchestra and the new name in 1994: the Orchestra of the Royal Capital City of Kraków Sinfonietta Cracovia, under which it has been operating until today. The ensemble is supported by Elżbieta and Krzysztof Penderecki. The Sinfonietta has worked with a number of excellent artists from all over the world. It is worth mentioning that the ensemble organizes original concert series such as the experimental Music without applause or very popular Sinfonietka, dedicated to the youngest music lovers. Recently, the Orchestra has extended its concert activity, e.g., by increasing the number of performances abroad. The ensemble has given concerts in, e.g., China, the Netherlands, Finland, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Austria. One of the most recent achievements of the Sinfonietta Cracovia has been the recording of the Polish premiere of Krzysztof Penderecki’s new Trumpet Concerto in the series of the world premieres with the participation of Gabor Boldoczki and the recording of the CD Oriental Trumpet Concertos (Sony Classical) in cooperation with the Hungarian trumpet player. In January 2017 the aforementioned album won the International Classical Music Award in the Contemporary category. In April 2017 the Orchestra welcomed the brilliant, world-renowned Rafael Payare as its new Honorary Guest Conductor.
