Tryb koncertowy

The Orchestra of the Capital Royal City of Krakow Sinfonietta Cracovia is one of the leading chamber ensembles in Poland. The character of the Orchestra is defined by the performance versatility, precision and flexibility which is successfully transferred to a symphonic ensemble. Sinfonietta Cracovia is praised for its performances of contemporary music in its various forms (from avant-garde to film music). In search for new forms, it becomes involved in numerous projects promoting new music and works of Polish composers. It is famous for its interpretations of the works of Krzysztof Penderecki, the mentor and patron of many of the Orchestra’s projects.

As a municipal cultural institution, Sinfonietta Cracovia daily participates in creating the cultural offer for Krakow residents and visitors from outside the city. At the same time, it builds its prestige and artistic potential through cooperation with international festivals, and by inviting the stars of the most important musical centres to joint collaborative projects. The Orchestra regularly participates in international concert tours, promoting Polish music abroad (from China, to Europe, to the United States), in phonographic projects and recordings for film and television.
