NFM Salon Orchestra
The NFM Salon Orchestra was created thanks to the kindness of the NFM Director Andrzej Kosendiak, the initiative of the concertmaster of the NFM Wroclaw Philharmonic, Marcin Danilewski and Jacek Sosna – the Orchestra’s personnel manager and talented organiser. The ensemble, according to the old tradition, is led by the first violinist who plays-directs. This role was taken by Marcin Danilewski, who has been running Salonorchester St Moritz in Switzerland and decided to share his experiences with the Wrocław audience.
The orchestra continues the nineteenth-century tradition of salon concerts. It consists of NFM Wrocław Philharmonic musicians playing string and wind instruments. An indispensable element in the salon orchestra is also the piano, which complements the sound of the ensemble. The wide repertoire of the group includes salon, opera and operetta music as well as classical works.
