In Krzyżowa we can experience the idea of Europe where it originated. Inspired, we will explore, question and probe this strength of Europe over and over again at the hightest possible musical level. We will take the inspiration and new impulses we have discovered and share them with audiences in Krzyżowa, in Poland and all over Europe.

An inspiring place
Here in Krzyżowa, formerly Kreisau, on the estate of Freya and Helmuth James von Moltke, a civilian resistance group planned 1942–1943 a peaceful and democratic Europe without borders. They had been inspired by the creative and inclusive teachings of the educational reformer and philanthropist, Eugenie Schwarzwald, and her Vienna circle. It was in Krzyżowa that Germany and Poland celebrated their Mass of Reconciliation in November 1989, a starting point for Europe to grow closer together.
The people behind Krzyżowa-Music
The idea for Krzyżowa-Music evolved into the chamber music festival; what started as two people with a common vision has now grown into an experienced team.
