Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra

Founded in 1901; its first music director and conductor was Emil Młynarski. Over the years, it has been directed by the best Polish conductors, such as Witold Rowicki, Bohdan Wodiczko, Tadeusz Strugała, and Kazimierz Kord, who all significantly contributed to the Orchestra’s standards and repertoire. Under Antoni Wit (the Orchestra’s director in 2002–2013), the Warsaw Philharmonic ensembles recorded more than fifty frequently awarded albums, including two Grammy-winning CDs. Under Jacek Kaspszyk, the Orchestra’s artistic director in 2013–2019, three CDs were released: Mieczysław Wajnberg’s music for Warner Classics (2014), Arnold Schönberg’s orchestral versions of works by Brahms and Bach (2015), and a Chopin album with pianist Ingolf Wunder (for Deutsche Grammophon, 2015).

Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra has made more than 140 tours on five continents, as well as appearing at numerous prestigious festivals and competitions, including regular performances at the Chopin International Piano Competitions in Warsaw, the Warsaw Autumn, Chopin and His Europe, and the Ludwig van Beethoven Easter Festival.
