The Warsaw National Philharmonic Orchestra is one of Poland's oldest musical establishments and is one of the cities' best loved organisations to date, boasting some of the brightest musical talent in the industry.
Organised by a group of aristocrats, financiers and musicians in 1901, the Warsaw Philharmonic has been blessed by the talents of many famous musicians like Grieg, Leoncavallo, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, Richard Strauss, and Stravinsky in its time and for visiting music lovers, it's a dream come true.
Visit the Warsaw Philharmonic
Like much of the city, the Warsaw Philharmonic suffered greatly in World War II, losing half its members to the war as well as the building in which they rehearsed and played their concerts.
The Warsaw Philharmonic was destroyed during a German air raid in 1939 but was rebuilt after the war and reclaimed as The National Orchestra of Poland. Conductor Witold Rowicki was responsible for the modernisation of the orchestra ensuring the cultivation of Polish music using the works of Chopin, Gorecki and other Polish treasures.
Just a short walk from the city centre, guests to the area can visit the newly rebuilt Warsaw Philharmonic and appreciate the beauty of its architecture.
