Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
We present to you the jubilee 20th edition of the Festival of Chamber Music “Arsenal Nights”, which takes place from 26 June to 10 July 2016.
Year by year our festival has been acclaimed as one of most charming musical events in Wroclaw. If you would like to take a rest from routine musical concert hall experiences, and face the works of greatest composers in open air with a subtle accompaniment of summer breeze and birds’ chatter, then consider Arsenal Nights a perfect opportunity. Our concerts are arranged in a beautiful scenery of the courtyard of 15th century City Arsenal, where we place a purpose-build stage and audience, thoughtfully protected from unexpected rain. It is not just a wonderful place to listen to music, but also to meet friends or spend a family night out.
You will be able to listen to performances of some acclaimed artists. You will find worthwhile to listen to Polish Cello Quartet (29 June) – it is a rare experience to hear the sound of four cellos. More unique features will come in concerts of a Polish flutist Agata Igras (6 July), harpist Malwina Lipiec (8 July) and a vibraphone player Thomas Dobler (9 July). In the finale we shall present to you a great violinist Roksana Kwaśnikowska. And please do not miss the joint performance of an excellent Polish singer Mietek Szcześniak together with the ensemble Krzysztof Herdzin Trio (3 July); and at their concert titled “Songs From Yesterday” we can expect some beautiful arrangements of greatest hits of The Beatles or The Rolling Stones.
Pop song, vibraphone, jazz trio, harp, oboe, violin, cellos are just a few of the highlights of this year Arsenal Nights. The repertoire is exceedingly rich. Masterpieces of Bach, Haendel, Haydn, Boccherini, Mozart, Schubert, Brahms, Borodin, Elgar, Mahler, Karłowicz, Massenet, Bacewicz or Piazzolla will make it possible for everyone to find their favourite sounds.
Please accept our sincere invitation. See you at the festival events!!
