Krzysztof Penderecki

Honorary Patron Of The Competition


Dear Sirs,

It is with great joy that, for the eighth time already, I have become the honorary patron of the International Flute Competition in Kraków.

Every edition of this Competition is a proof that one can create a place where mutual respect, understanding and happiness reign, a place where big emotions, from passion, enthusiasm and satisfaction to the bitterness of defeat, meet. It is  a very human experience.

I wish all the participants to play their best in the Competition, I wish the Jury to make wise choices while evaluating the high artistic level of the performances.

I wish the Organizer to be successful and satisfied and the audience to be delighted by the art of flute playing.

I am happy to invite you to Florianka Concert Hall, the hospitable walls of the Academy of Music in Kraków.


Wishing you once again an unforgettable artistic experience.



Krzysztof Penderecki
