Following the basic and successful ideas of Leo Festival we invite you to four new great venues this year.
You can buy your tickets for the 2014 Wratislavia Cantans beginning immediately on March 27, 2014. From that date on you can buy your Festival tickets online, with the unique opportunity to check the sightlines of your selected seat. Tickets available in https://bilety.nfm.wroclaw.pl/
We recommend you buy tickets from official sources only. By purchasing a ticket outside the official outlet network, you risk to buy a forged ticket and therefore may not be admitted to the event.
We are very happy to announce that the recording of War Reguiem by Benjamin Britten conducted by Paul McCreesh and featuring, among others, the Wrocław Philharmonic Choir, released by the Winged Lion and the International Festival Wratislavia Cantans won the prestigious BBC Music Magazine Award 2014. The award ceremony was held on 8 April 2014 in London.
Musica Polonica Nova – a feast of Polish Music – this time invites performers from Denmark: the excellent Ensemble Nordlys. The musicians of the Danish quartet are famous for their versatility making them feel comfortable in the repertoire of various epochs, from Baroque to contemporary.

The concert features the superb Kwartludium: Dagna Sadkowska – violin, Michał Górczyński – clarinet, Paweł Nowicki – percussion, and Piotr Nowicki – piano, this time joined by Dariusz Przybylski on Hammond organ and Mikołaj Pałosz on cello.
The main part is played by the Hammmond organ, featured in Pattern by South American composer Eunho Chango, The tiger left me unsatisfied by Mikołaj Laskowski, Abrenuntio by Dariusz Przybylski, 28 Days of the Moon by Mateusz Ryczek and Steam Punk Gear by Aleksander Kościów.
