Dear friends, by purchasing tickets, you agree to сomply with our rules for concertgoers.
Not every country has a composer whose name has become a synonym for music. Chopin’s heritage is mostly for piano, but its energy would be enough for a whole orchestra. Few of us know that Chopin loved to play the organ, but during his lifetime this instrument was out of fashion. Who knows how his heritage would look like if he lived till Cavaillé-Coll’s superb romantic organs appeared?
Two cathedral organs present Chopin’s immortal waltzes, mazurkas and polonaises. Helping to create a truly Polish atmosphere, poems of another great son of Poland will be recited: Karol Wojtyła, better known as John Paul II.
