For the second time in the history of the Misteria Paschalia Festival we had the opportunity to hear George Frideric Handel’s grand oratorio La Resurrezione. Four years ago it was performed by Il Giardino Armonico under the baton of Giovanni Antonini. On Easter Monday, the oratorio concluded this year’s Festival. It was performed by Le Cercle de l’Harmonie under the baton of René Jacobs, his first time in the role of conductor in Poland.Cantatas of the Leipzig Cantor

Traditionally, Holy Saturday’s grand concerts of the Misteria Paschalia Festival are held in St Kinga’s Chapel, some 101 m below ground at the Wieliczka Salt Mine. The concerts have their very special, intimate character. In addition to the unique, charming venue with perfect acoustics, the concerts are noteworthy for the choice of music repertoire and performing artists. This time we had the opportunity to enjoy a concert by the Mala Punica ensemble, who were performing for the first time in Krakow.Musical meditation by candlelight

The Good Friday concert of Le Poème Harmonique and Capella Cracoviensis under the baton of Vincent Dumestre will become a historical event for several reasons, not only for the Misteria Paschalia. One reason is that the French ensemble specialising in Baroque music, performed for a Polish audience for the first time, along with the Capella Cracoviensis.
