Details of Warsaw Philharmonic and the Ticket Luck value
Warsaw Philharmonic ? The National Orchestra and Choir of Poland is Europe's one of the earliest musical foundations. It opened in 1901 on the proposal of an assemblage of Polish musicians, such as Ludwik Grossman and Emil Mlynarski among others, along with aristocrats and financiers like Natalia, Stefan and Stanislaw Lubomirski and more. The venue served as the venue for several international events, including the Chopin Piano competition. The architect behind this one of its kind building was Karol Kozlowski, who had designed the structure according to the Viennese Secession style. However, the building was rebuilt in a new style overall after the obliteration of the Second World War.
The first event to be held at the Warsaw Philharmonic was a concert, on 5th November, 1901, presenting the music of Polish musicians. The first orchestra was conducted by Emil Mlynarski, who was also the co-founder, musical director and principal conductor of Warsaw Philharmonic. During 1901 to 1939, the venue has been host to many events, and earned itself a title as one of the pioneering venues of the era. The first three Chopin International Piano Competitions, along with the first Wieniawski International Violin Competition and the first Universal Festival of Polish Art were held at the Warsaw Philharmonic. However, with the occurrence of the World War II the Philharmonic's activity got interrupted, as the building got destroyed and about half of the musicians perished. It reopened for the 1947-1948 season, and finally got rebuilt by 1955. It soon got the title of the National Orchestra of Poland, whereas, a proficient choir was also created, and the founder of this choir was Zbigniew Soja.
Today, the building comprises two halls ? main concert hall, featuring 1072 seats, and the chamber music hall, featuring 378 seats. These halls also play host to events like Gala concerts, congresses, symposia, presentations and meetings. A lot of other structural changes were also made to the newly constructed building. Currently, the Warsaw Philharmonic - National Orchestra and Choir of Poland comprises 112 professional composers and 100 choral singers. The choir and the orchestra travel around the world giving their marvelous performances. They have been invited by top-notch venues to give their performance, including Carnegie Hall, Chicago Symphony Hall, Berliner Philharmonie, and many others. The orchestra also takes a regular part in its hometown's International Festival of Contemporary Music, known as Warsaw Autumn, along with performing in the final rounds of the Chopin International Piano Competitions.
The Warsaw Philharmonic has made various recordings for Polish and foreign record companies, including Polskie Nagrania, and CD Accord, which had resulted in earning the orchestra countless awards, along with many distinctions.
