Yehudi Menuhin: „Working with them has given me more satisfaction than working with any other orchestra in the world [...]”
Martha Argerich: „… they are wonderful, they are one of the best in the business, not just in Poland. Top shelf.”
Sinfonia Varsovia is Poland’s national good. Krzysztof Penderecki, a renowned Polish composer, has been its artistic director since 2003, while Marc Minkowski, the world-famous French conductor, has been responsible for the music side since 2008. The official website of the orchestra lists some of the most prestigious concert halls visited by Sinfonia to date: New York’s Carnegie Hall, Théatre des Champs Elysées in Paris, London’s Barbican Centre, Vienna’s Musikverein, Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, Tokio’s Suntory and Munich’s Herkulessaal, to name but a few. The Orchestra has performed at festivals in Salzburg, Gstaad (The Yehudi Menuhin Festival), Aix-en-Provence, Montreux, La Roque d’Anthéron, Schleswig-Holstein, Würzburg, The Pablo Casalsa festival, Alte Oper (Frankfurt am Main), Beethoven festival in Bonn and many others.
Sinfonia Varsovia takes great pride in its policy of promoting the most talented Polish musicians of young generation. With respect to this year’s Solidarity of Arts, one can hardly think of a better promotion for young artists than standing on one stage with Marcus Miller at a show as big as Marcus+ promises to be.
