Now known as the Orchestra of the Stanisław Moniuszko Grand Theatre in Poznań, it first played at the Grand Theatre’s inaugural spectacle (Moniuszko’s Halka) on 31st August 1919. In 1925 Pietro Mascagni conducted his Cavalleria Rusticana at this theatre.
Founded in 2007, the Lutosławski Quartet was named after one of Poland’s most eminent 20th-century composers. It is one of the ensembles-in-residence at Wrocław’s National Forum of Music. Its members are: Roksana Kwaśnikowska (1st violin; previously – Bartosz Woroch), Marcin Markowicz (2nd violin), Artur Rozmysłowicz (viola), and Maciej Młodawski (cello). Their repertoire comprises primarily 20th- and 21st-century Polish works, particularly those of Witold Lutosławski, Karol Szymanowski, and Paweł Mykietyn.
One of the most active and versatile wind ensembles in Poland. Founded in 2013 to mark Witold Lutosławski’s birth centenary, LutosAir Quintet is one of the ensembles-in-residence at Wrocław’s National Forum of Music. Its members are soloists of NFM Wrocław Philharmonic and NOSPR: Jan Krzeszowiec (flute), Karolina Stalmachowska (oboe; previously - Wojciech Merena), Maciej Dobosz (clarinet), Alicja Kieruzalska (bassoon), Mateusz Feliński (horn). The quintet focuses especially on most recent music, such as the works of Paweł Hendrich (including a CD under the DUX label), Marcin Stańczyk, Rafał Augustyn, and Nikolet Burzyńska.
Adam Bałdych’s band consists, apart from its leader, of Marek Konarski (tenor saxophone), Łukasz Ojdana (piano), Michał Barański (bass), and Dawid Fortuna (drums).
The Quintet develops Bałdych’s concept of music balancing between genres and focusing in particular on the borderline area between jazz and classical music. This borderland is for the violinist a space of experimentation and of constructing his own, highly personal instrumental language.
