For half a century the International Festival Wratislavia Cantans has been the most important festival of classical music in this part of Europe. From September 6-19, 2015, the festival will celebrate its 50th anniversary in the of chilly pews of Wrocław churches.
An extraordinary attraction of the 50th Wratislavia Cantans will be revivals of some concerts of the first edition in 1966. The concert conducted by Tadeusz Strugała will bring together three important anniversaries: Strugała’s 80th anniversary, 60 years of his artistic activities, and the NFM Orchestra’s 70th anniversary. This year’s opening concert repeats the programme which began the Wratislavia Cantans history. The festival will also reveal great musical treasures of Wrocław University Library – two concert-cum-exhibition events feature, among others, works whose scores were published in Venice in the 17th century and uniquely preserved in Wrocław.
