Idea of the Festival
Every year since 2004 the Książ Castle holds the Ensemble International Festival. Mission of the Festival is to promote the little known art of chamber music and drama. There are two movements of art in the scope of the Festival. There are music masterclasses and theatre workshops which offer participants of the Festival opportunity to work with outstanding academics on performance of selected art pieces. All work is presented during six concerts and three theatre shows opened to the public. The Festival operates under a unique formula. Each chamber team is composed of professors and students. It encourages partnership between acknowledged musicians and newcomers. It also allows discussion about creative interpretation of art by people with different experience, or coming from a different cultural background. Young actors work in small groups guided by recognized artists. Festival is held at an exquisite venue, in one of the most magnificent castles in Poland. All rehearsals, concerts and shows take place in the impressive interiors of Książ Castle.
We would like to invite students and graduates of music universities from Poland and abroad, as well as students from Polish acting schools, to participate in our workshops.
