An event with 17 years of tradition, the Ogrody Muzyczne [Music Gardens] Festival will be held this year from July 1-26, 2017 in Warsaw’s Royal Castle.
For the last 10 years, the main guest of the festival has been the country that annually assumes the leadership of the Council of the European Union on July 1. This year that country is Estonia, which also celebrates its 100 anniversary of gaining independence in 2017. Concerts and other events of the festival are going to be held under the auspices of Estonian Embassy, and an official celebration program called #Estonia100. This year, guest performers from Estonia will include: the Estonian Piano Orchestra (8 pianists on 4 pianos), the Vox Clamantis Choir (2013 Grammy Award winners) and Sven Grünberg (a leader of Estonian electronic music and progressive rock).
The festival also will not miss Polish performers. In the final concert titled “Paganini Tour”, violinist Marcin Patyra and the Sinfonia Viva ensemble dir. by Tomasz Radiwonowicz will perform a program including the Concerto for Orchestra by Grażyna Bacewicz. Popular artists such as Stanisław Janicki (July 13) and Jolanta and Włodek Pawlik (July 7) will also be special guests.
