 Artis­tic Man­ag­er — Rafał Jani­ak

Pho­to Rafał Cho­j­nac­ki

The ensem­ble was found­ed in 2017, ini­ti­at­ed by Pro­fes­sor Klaudiusz Baran, Rec­tor of Warsaw’s uni­ver­si­ty of music, who entrust­ed its artis­tic super­vi­sion to con­duc­tor Rafał Jani­ak. The idea which stood behind the cre­ation of the orches­tra was to care­ful­ly select musi­cians so that the ensem­ble could present very diverse, often inno­v­a­tive, pro­gramme not just at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Music but also out­side of it, all that in order to pro­mote the high artis­tic lev­el of the FCUM. Mem­bers of the orches­tra are out­stand­ing stu­dents select­ed in mul­ti-stage audi­tions. The core of the ensem­ble are the strings but – depend­ing on needs – there is an option to col­lab­o­rate with almost any tal­ent­ed instru­men­tal­ist con­nect­ed with the FCUM. The ensemble’s way of func­tion­ing is a nov­el­ty among sim­i­lar groups at artis­tic uni­ver­si­ties which, as intend­ed by its founders, should be reflect­ed in the high artis­tic lev­el of the orches­tra and add a unique val­ue to music events fea­tur­ing it.
