In November the Kraków Philharmonic will be livening up the monotony of late autumn with the Organ and Harpsichord Music Days (18-22 November) , organised in cooperation with the Academy of Music in Kraków.

Accompanying organ virtuoso, Andrzej Białko, during his performance of works by Franz Liszt and the contemporary German composers, Hans Schanderl and Heinrich Poos, will be the Kraków Philharmonic Choir ( 18 November). Arkadiusz Balic, winner of one of the most prestigious organ competitions in the world in Chartres, will be presenting works by 20th century French composers ( 22 November), while during the concert Bach – semper magnificus – in Jazz and Classical music, we shall hear – in accordance with its title – works exclusively by the Baroque genius ( 19 November). Playing them will be the organist Julian Gembalski, professor at the Academy of Music in Katowice and founder of the first organ museum in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as Adam Makowicz, the outstanding jazz pianist who has lived in the United States for many years. The latter defines jazz as “a world of freedom and improvisation”. Will the frenzy of jazz creep into the mathematically organised works of a master of polyphony and counterpoint?

The harpsichord concerts ( 20 and 21 November) have been dedicated to the marvellous pianist, musical theorist and composer, Wanda Landowska, who died 60 years ago. Her largest service to posterity, however, was her returning of the harpsichord, supplanted in the 18th century by the piano, to favour. Thanks to Landowska’s recitals at the beginning of the 20th century, recital halls once again opened their doors to this instrument and it again aroused the interest of composers. Proof of the re-blossoming of the harpsichord is the programme being played in the Kraków Philharmonic Hall, composed almost entirely of works which came into being in the last century. We shall hear the works of F. Poulenc, K. Moszumańska-Nazar, H.M. Górecki and K. Penderecki, performed by Elżbieta Stefańska, Elżbieta Chojnacka and Władysław Kłosiewicz.
