THE NEW YEAR CONCERT – SINFONIETTA CRACOVIA
The Viennese charm and devilish brilliance during the New Year Concert by Sinfonietta Cracovia. The famous New Year concert of the Vienna Philharmonic is known worldwide. Now it’s Krakow’s time to shine! On the 6th of January Sinfonietta Cracovia will play the long-awaited New Year Concert at the ICE Kraków Congress Centre. The charming Viennese classical music will mix with the unprecedented brilliance of Janoska Ensemble, and Jurek Dybał – director of Sinfonietta Cracovia – will reveal some of the secrets and behind the scenes of the famous musical event.
“It will be an exceptional concert, combining the Viennese charm with precision and quality characteristic of the best interpretations of Strauss’ masterpieces. I hope that it will be the first step to break with the perception of carnival concerts, usually associated with poor performances and lack of any stylistic awareness. Everyone who would like to experience the Viennese New Year should come to Krakow”, said Jurek Dybał, who will conduct the concert and share some behind the scenes stories from the most famous event in the world of classical music. The director of Sinfonietta Cracovia is also one of the musicians in the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, therefore he has a first-hand experience and knowledge of all the secrets of the original Viennese performances. It will be a perfect opportunity to listen to the refined interpretations, mindful of the traditions.
The performances by the invited guests – the exceptional Janoska Ensemble, a quartet combining their Roma origins with devilish brilliance and ease of interpretation, characteristic of jazz musicians – will be a strong accent. Their meeting at the stage will create an explosive combination of charismatic personalities, talent, excellent skills and defiance, characteristic of their origin. The unique sound of the band is already called the “Janoska style”. Every performance by the Janoska Ensemble is a sensation: the brilliant csárdáses, jazz and blues pieces, and even Paganini’s caprices performed by the ensemble make the stage light up and outshine even the New Year’s Eve fireworks.
The combination of sublime classical music and passionate standards – will the tradition of New Year Concerts be successful in Krakow?
