March 4, 2020

Dear All,

Due to the substantial threat of infections and spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, in order to minimize the effects of potential appearance of the virus, His Magnificence Rector of the Academy of Music in Kraków, Prof. Dr. Hab. Stanisław Krawczyński has made a decision to change the date of the 8th International Flute Competition Kraków 2020.

We are incredibly sorry about this but health of all our guests and employees is of supreme value to us.

8th International Flute Competition Kraków 2020 will take place from 8th to 15th November 2020.










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
