How to combine Norwegian folk melodies, a tale of a snowman (extremely popular in the beginnings of the 20th century), a monumental tone poem bas on Nietsche’s writings and a jubilee of an outstanding Polish composer? It’s easy – play it all on organ! During the Organ Music Days at the Kraków Philharmonic, we will hear Petra Bjørkhaug, organist of the Gothic Nidaros Cathedral in far-away Norway, Michał Białko playing in Richard Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra, and Daniel Strządała who joins forces with the Kraków Philharmonic Choir in sacral songs by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki (the beginning of December marks the 90th birth anniversary of the great Polish composer of the 30th century).
