CONCERT BY CANDLELIGHT | ROBERT SKIERA
In the beautiful interior of the Fryderyk Concert Hall, lit only by candlelight, we will listen to Fryderyk Chopin's performed by extraordinary artists - outstanding musicians of our time.
In addition to Fryderyk Chopin's compositions, the concert program will also include works by other composers, those who inspired Fryderyk Chopin (including Jan Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven), composers from the circle of European romantic music (including Ferenc Liszt, Joseph Elsner, Stanisław Moniuszko), as well as later artists.
The concerts are two-part recitals lasting approximately 60 minutes, based on the idea of salon musical meetings popular in the 19th century.
During the concert break, we will offer you a glass of sparkling wine.
Please arrive 15 minutes before the concert.
