The FCUM Cham­ber Orchestra


Pho­to Rafał Cho­j­nac­ki

Attempts to cre­ate a cham­ber music ensem­ble which would only train spe­cif­ic music skills with­in the group of string instru­ments have been made a few times at Warsaw’s uni­ver­si­ty of music. In
1991 Cam­er­a­ta Acad­e­mia was found­ed – it was an orches­tra with a fixed line-up, per­form­ing under the baton of Włodz­imierz Szy­mańs­ki and spe­cial­iz­ing in ear­ly music, main­ly ora­to­rio pieces. Four years lat­er stu­dent orches­tra Con­certi­no under Michał Klauza had its debut. And final­ly, in 1995, at the ini­tia­tive of Prof. Błażej Sroczyńs­ki, the Chopin Acad­e­mia Orches­tra under the man­age­ment of an out­stand­ing vio­lin­ist Jan Stanien­da was estab­lished, and since then it has gone down in our university’s his­to­ry thanks to many con­certs with out­stand­ing artists. Cur­rent­ly the ensem­ble is known as the FCUM Cham­ber Orches­tra, and the young peo­ple it con­sists of coop­er­ates with anoth­er string instru­ment play­er spe­cial­iz­ing in work with this type of ensem­bles.
