Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra - Press:

Die Welt

"All musicians, to the last desk demonstrated an incredible precision of intonation, mastery of string playing and a sound full of brightness and expressive power."

The Washington Post

"Wojciech Rajski conducted without score and without podium. He uses a fantastic, wide range of movement and causes each instrumentalist to give his best."

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

"With this concert the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra has joined the ranks of chamber orchestras of the highest calibre. I heard this Serenade many times, but never before did I hear such a moving, well thought-out and polished interpretation of the piece. Everything was perfect: tempo, dynamics, and the sound, which was simply wonderful."

Stuttgarter Zeitung

"The hallmarks of their playing are nobleness and nimbleness of sound which manifested itself in the subtle dynamic shading."

The Atlantic Constitution

"Here is actually a completely different chamber orchestra, different to the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-fields, although the cast is the same. Where the Academy shows the will to be the best and conscientious, here the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Wojciech Rajski displayed astounding clarity. Whereas the Academy sounded like every note had been tested and calculated down to the detail, the Polish orchestra displayed spontaneity. The listener has the feeling that the next performance by the Academy is a copy of the previous, whereas the next performance by the Polish orchestra is an adventure."


"The Polish Chamber Philharmonic under Wojciech Rajski confirmed its position as an ensemble of the highest interpretative and stylistic level. A clear tone, enchanting interpretation, true fireworks in the tempos, and the freshness of innovating effects all made a great impression."

Nordbayerischer Kurier

"Wojciech Rajski has a phenomenal orchestra. What a perfect sound production apparatus! An intensity of sound! What a perfect rapport between orchestra, conductor, and soloist, in which not a single gesture is needed. This orchestra must certainly make another visit to Bayreuth."

Die Rhein-Pfalz

"Fantastic ensemble discipline, musical culture of the highest calibre, sheer joy of making music, a perfect feel for every detail, elegance, imagination, sensuous spirit and timbral diversity – these are the features that struck listeners from the first note to the last."

Rubinstein Trio

The RUBINSTEIN TRIO was formed in Lodz, Poland, in honour of the world famous pianist Arthur Rubinstein, a native of Lodz.

Since its founding, the Trio has had great success with the public and the international press. This is made possible by the high qualifications of the individual members.

The pianist Anna Wesolowska (studies in Vienna and Lodz), the violinist Adam Kostecki and the cellist Stanislaw Firlej (studies in Moscow with David Oistrach and Mstislav Rostropovich respectively) have individually concertized in America and most of Western Europe to rave reviews and also made several records.

Stanislaw Firlej, Anna Wesolowska and Adam Kostecki are professors at the Music Conservatory in Lodz or Hannover (Germany).

The RUBINSTEIN TRIO has concertized in Germany, Holland, France, Belgium, Spain, and Scandinavia. The complete trios of Schubert and Chopin have been recorded for the French firm "Le Chant du Monde".

Important music festivals such as Warsaw Fall, Holland Festival and La Chaise Dieu Festival (France) have engaged the RUBINSTEIN TRIO.

Paganini Duo

In 1984 Adam Kostecki and Carsten Petermann founded the PAGANINI DUO with the intention of making unjustly neglected works by Paganini for Violin and Guitar known to a wider public.

Their repertoire also includes other works originally written for this combination as well as transcriptions ranging from baroque to modern works (Wiener, Stepanek, Piazzolla).

Since 1985 the PAGANINI DUO has been performing regularly throughout Germany and Europe and have appeared at several music festivals (France, Austria, Spain, Luxembourg, Israel, Turkey).

Their recordings and CD productions show their high technical standard and musicality.

Unique in its artistic continuity it is the only Duo of its kind which over a period of of more than fifteen years has consistently performed with great success throughout Europe.
