With standing ovation, Kraków’s audience parted with the Kraków Philharmonic Orchestra at the end of the 70th jubilee artistic season.
On Saturday, June 20, 2015, the Kraków Philharmonic officially finished the 2014/2015 artistic season. The final concert, conducted by maestro Antoni Wit, honorary conductor, featured fragments of the world’s famous opera repertoire: The Huntsmen’s Chorus from Der Freischütz by Weber, the chorus from Don Pasquale by Donizetti, the final scene of Gounod’s Faust, mazurkas from The Hounted Manor by Moniuszko, Polovtsian dances from Prince Igor by Borodin and all-time favourites – waltzes from The Gypsy Baron by Johannes Strauss II.
The music evening was preceded by the presentation of the patrons, sponsors and partners of the Kraków Philharmonic, which have supported this institution in its jubilee 70th artistic season. NEWAG S.A. – the patron of the Kraków Philharmonic, received a commemorative statuette designed especially for this occasion by Barbara Berniak of the Kraków Academy of Fine Arts.
