About the festival
The International Music Festival of Central-Eastern Europe Eufonie is organized by the National Centre for Culture with resources of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
The Eufonie International Music Festival of Central-Eastern Europe is organized by the National Centre for Culture with funds of the Ministry of Culture, National Heritage and Sport. The idea of the festival is to popularize the cultural heritage of most countries known today as Central and Eastern Europe: from the Balkans, through Romania and Austria, the Visegrad Group countries, Ukraine and Belarus, to the Baltic States. This area is an extremely interesting melting pot whose complexity can be discovered through the variety of the presented compositions and artists. The unique features of the Eufonie Festival are, on the one hand, drawing from tradition and, on the other hand, presenting completely new, previously undiscovered sounds. The Eufonie Festival features music of different eras and styles.

The name of the festival comes from the word euphonia (from the Greek ευφωνία, euphonia), describing concordantly juxtaposed elements, harmoniously selected sounds. The festival’s identification is a combination of the letter ‘f’ from the name and the sound hole of a violin, cello or double bass.

Nazwa festiwalu pochodzi od słowa eufonia (z języka greckiego ευφωνία, euphonia), określającego zgodnie zestawione ze sobą elementy, harmonijnie dobrane dźwięki. Identyfikacja festiwalu jest połączeniem litery „f” z nazwy oraz otworu rezonansowego skrzypiec, wiolonczeli czy kontrabasu.

Romanticism as the leitmotif of the 3rd edition of the festival
This year’s edition of the festival will focus on the Romantic period, in which, in addition to new forms and genres, it was the composers’ interest in native folklore that was of utmost importance. The focus on the heritage of individual countries’ traditional culture was most evident in the output of the representatives of the so-called national schools. They were composers whose music reflected the national identity through references to historical events or folk themes.

One of the leading composers of this trend was the Czech composer Antonín Dvořák, whose works will be performed at festival concerts. His pieces are an original combination of top-notch symphonic music with native folklore. Chamber music, on the other hand, is another, very important, facet of the 19th-century music. Composers would contribute to this genre of music with great pleasure, writing quartets, quintets and songs.

The nine festival days will be filled with fourteen events, and the stage will be given to such outstanding performers as Veriko Tchumburidze, Janusz Wawrowski, Anastasia Kobekina, Olga Pasiecznik, Adam Bałdych, Urszula Kryger, Anu Tali, Zsolt Nagy, Olari Elts or Oval.
