The Music of Abel Korzeniowski
Special guest: Abel Korzeniowski
Beethoven Academy Orchestra
Abel Korzeniowski – conductor
Abel Korzeniowski is one of the few Polish composers for whom the American Dream of Hollywood has come true. He has worked with such artists as Tom Ford (A Single Man) and Madonna (W.E.), and received Golden Globe nominations for both soundtracks. His latest projects – the series Penny Dreadful and Tom Ford's latest film, Nocturnal Animals (BAFTA 2016 nomination) have aroused admiration worldwide. Abel Korzeniowski accepted the invitation to the Krakow FMF for the second time, this time with a monographic presentation of his work during the opening concert of the anniversary edition of the FMF. The selection of the composer is admirable also because of his Krakow roots – he was born and raised here, and studied composition under Krzysztof Penderecki. Abel Korzeniowski will not only be the guest of honour at the concert, but he will also conduct the entirety of the programme he has prepared for the festival.
