In the beginning of this year Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra was presented one of the most prestigious music awards in the world – ICMA 2018 (International Classical Music Awards). We received it for the recording of Feliks Nowowiejski’s “Quo Vadis” oratorio, performed by soloists (Wioletta Chodowicz, Robert Gierlach and Wojciech Gierlach), Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic Choir prepared by Violetta Bielecka and Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra led by Łukasz Borowicz.

On Friday, the 23rd of November, the nominations for ICMA 2019 were announced. We are extremely happy to inform, that once again we have received a nomination for this prestigious award. The recordings of Feliks Nowowiejski’s Symphonies No. 2 and 3, performed by Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Łukasz Borowicz and prepared by DUX record label, were put on the list of albums nominated for ICMA 2019 in the category of symphonic music. Other works nominated in the category include the album featuring Leonard Bernstein’s Symphony No. 2 by Berliner Philharmoniker and Krystian Zimmerman, led by Simon Rattle, or Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphonies No. 4 and 11 performed by Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andris Nelsons.

It is worth highlighting that the album with Nowowiejski’s symphonies was a world phonographic premiere. In 2018 it received the Supersonic Pizzicato Award given by Luxembourgian Pizzicato music magazine. Remy Franck described it this way: Łukasz Borowicz handles the musical details very accurately, so that the music becomes very rhetorical. That’s why the recordings are important not only as phonographic premieres, but also because they show Nowowiejski’s music in a better light, almost enhancing the incomprehensible question: why has it taken both of these works so long to become a part of the repertoire? DUX album is a notable contribution in the evocation and revival of 20th century symphonic music.


Due to a number of events happening in the afternoon and in the evening of the 11th of November in the vicinity of University Concert Hall, the nearby streets will be closed for vehicle traffic. We kindly ask those coming to the “Celebrating the Centenary of Poland’s Independence” concert, which starts at 6 p.m. in the Poznan Philharmonic, to arrive to the venue earlier, at 5:45 p.m. at the very latest.

As the concert is associated with the event “100 for 100. Musical decades of freedom”, the first part will be recorded – the rebroadcast is scheduled to go on air of Polish Radio Program II on the 13th of November 2018 about 8:30 p.m.

On the 27th of October Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra performed in Auditorium di Milano – the headquarters of the Giuseppe Verdi Symphony Orchestra of Milan, which in the capital of the Lombardy region serves also as a Philharmonic. During the concert entitled “With Chopin at Verdi’s” the PP Orchestra presented Polish repertoire: from Karol Kurpiński, through Henryk Wieniawski and Krzysztof Penderecki to Frédéric Chopin.

The concert of the Poznan orchestra – led by Łukasz Borowicz and with the participation of pianist Yulianna Avdeewa and violinist Bomsori Kim, received a warm welcome from the international audience; both of the soloists, as well as the orchestra, had to encore.

Among the listeners there were a hundred members of the Poznań Philharmonic Friends’ Club.

26 october 2018Bastille „conquered”… by Łukasz Borowicz

Łukasz Borowicz, Chief Guest Conductor of Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra, on the 24th of October made his debut in Opéra Bastille and… won the hearts of the French audience. He is the first Polish conductor to have led a performance in the Parisian opera.

Borowicz conducted the recent production of Giacomo Meyerbeer’s “Les Huguenots”, which opened the jubilee, 350. artistic season of the Parisian opera in September. The performance, lasting almost 5 hours and requiring about 250 participants, is an immense work. Łukasz Borowicz dealt with it in a marvelous way, which resulted in receiving a thunderous ovation.

On behalf of the management and staff of Poznan Philharmonic we congratulate Łukasz Borowicz his success in Paris!

In the newest issue of Angora magazine Sławomir Pietras also writes extensively about our conductor’s success:

 (…) From the first bars he conducted freely and emotionally, influencing the musicians in a friendly way, though at the same time being consequent in executing all the details of the score. During the performance of this immense work I noted that Borowicz knew it by heart, only once in a while glancing at the sheet music lying on the music stand. (…) A week ago Łukasz Borowicz was spoken of with admiration only in the backstage of Opéra Bastille – now he is on the lips of the whole Parisian opera circle. (…) Before the second act the audience invited Łukasz Borowicz, entering the stage, with an applause. After the performance he received another, this time a standing ovation accompanied with cries of admiration. All the soloist and a choir of over a hundred singers gathered on the stage applauded.(…)

Andrzej Boreyko, one of the most valued conductors in the world with Polish roots (his father was a Professor at Adam Mickiewicz University, and his son spent the first six years of his life in Poznan), will become the artistic director of Warsaw National Philharmonic from 2019/2020 season.

In the years 1992-1995 Andrzej Boreyko was the artistic director of Poznan Philharmonic. Then he led several German orchestras (including Hamburger Symphoniker and Duesseldorfer Symphoniker), as well as the National Orchestra of Belgium. Currently he holds the post of an artistic director in Naples Philharmonic (Florida) and is the first guest conductor of a few European orchestras.

After an over 20-year-long break Andrzej Boreyko returned to Poznan Philharmonic, where in 2016-2017 he conducted three concerts, and everything suggests that – despite his new duties – he will continue to perform in the subsequent seasons.

We congratulate the magnificent artist and wish luck and a lot of success while working with the next orchestra he has been entrusted with!

03 september 2018Śrem – the first!


A year ago regional authorities of Śrem, as the first of the cities and communes in Wielkopolska Voivodeship, started a cooperation with Poznan Philharmonic. On the strength of the agreement signed by Mayor Adam Lewandowski and Managing Director of Poznan Philharmonic Wojciech Nentwig, in the past artistic season a few hundred inhabitants of this beautiful city took part in ten concerts held in our institution. The transits for these events were co-financed by local authorities. Satisfaction and delight of the trips’ participants were so great, that a few days ago the aforementioned signatories made a new agreement for the successive 2018/2019 season. This time the event took place in the Śrem Town Hall, as Adrian Wartecki captured on a photograph. We are truly happy about this contract. Which local authority in the voivodeship will follow in the footsteps of Śrem?
