It is already the fifth edition of the Strefa Ciszy [Sphere of Silence] Festival, a special concert series organized in one of the most beautiful gardens of Warsaw. For five consecutive Saturdays in July, on five open-air stages, listeners will hear various genres of music, from classical music and jazz to folk. Concerts for the youngest music lovers will take place throughout the day, in the morning and in the afternoon.
The Sphere of Silence is organized in the Royal Łazienki Museum for the fourth time. Ryszard Kubiak, director and originator of the festival, says he could not think of any better place: “The concept of the festival was connected from the beginning with the Royal Łazienki Museum” he explains. “That place is our oasis of peace, beauty and nature in the middle of the rushing city. The Royal Łazienki Museum is the eponymous sphere of silence, that is, a zone where one may hear sounds inaudible and unnoticed in other places.”
The Sphere of Silence Festival is addressed not only to consummate music lovers. The organizers focus on quality and count on a universal message: “If I were to describe the artistic message of the Sphere of Silence in the shortest possible way, I would say: uncompromising quality in a nice friendly atmosphere” Tomasz Pokrzywiński explains. “We made the assumption that we will host only the best musicians and bands, and their performances will not be distorted by any sound amplification system, so our concerts will definitely satisfy [a] demanding audience. On the other hand, the atmosphere, and in some part also the repertoire, will tempt even the most chance passers-by.”
