Eufonie – Classical
11 concerts during 9 days in 5 concert halls. World-famous soloists and European orchestras.
"Eufonie" is a new music festival, referring to the tradition of the regional community of most countries today referred to as Central and Eastern Europe, stretching from the Balkans, through Romania and Austria, the Visegrad Group countries, the Ukraine and Belarus, to the Baltic countries, sometimes extended to Scandinavia. This area is a fascinating melting pot of influences from the East and the West, boiling with cultural energy which often determined the identity of nations deprived of their own countries.
During this year's edition of the Festival - organized in the special year of the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining its independence - we had a chance to hear, among others, works by Karol Szymanowski, Béla Bartók, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, Antonín Dvořák and Arvo Pärt.
