Philharmonia Quintet

Philharmonia Quintet (wind quintet), now under the auspices of the Horizon Art Society, is an ensemble established by first-desk players of the Krakow Philharmonic Orchestra. Among them, Janusz Antonik, Mirosław Płoski, and Wojciech Turek are also teachers at the Academy of Music in Cracow.  
The repertoire of Philharmonia Quintet covers a wide range of musical literature from the Classical era to the 20th and 21st century. The ensemble focuses especially on Polish contemporary music, often performing less known works, such as Dry Pieces of Marcel Chyrzyński (a work dedicated to Philharmonia Quintet). One of the important aspects of the ensemble’s activity are chamber music performances combining strings, winds and piano. Such projects were realized in cooperation with the Horizon Ensemble, Amar Corde String Quartet and with eminent pianists: Waldemar Malicki, Arkadi Zenziper, Rafał Łuszczewski, Mirosław Herbowski and Mariola Cieniawa. 
The instrumentalists of the Philharmonia Quintet have taken part in such festivals and musical events as the Krakow Chamber Music Festival (the following editions: 20th Century Classics and Avant-garde, Musical Europe, Romanticism),  the Days of Grażyna Bacewicz, the Days of Cracovian Composers, Musical Autumn in Przemyśl, Tyniec Organ Recitals, the Cracow Radio Summer Concert Series, and finally – the prestigious Usedomer Musikfestival (including a live broadcast through Deutschland Radio Berlin) and Schubertiaden Schnackenburg (Germany).  
The last recorded CD Jewish Roots: Music for Wind Quintet (2006) showcases works from the classical repertoire written by Jewish-born composers and composers influenced by Jewish culture. The album, released by the Medialogic Company in Krakow, features works by such well-known artists as Darius Milhaud and Samuel Barber (recorded in Poland for the first time), Czech composer Štěpan Lucky (Polish premiere) and the prominent American composer Robert Paterson (world premiere recording).
