Warsaw Philharmonic is an internationally renowned cultural institution
The Warsaw Philharmonic - The National Orchestra and Choir of Poland, celebrating its 120 years jubilee in 2021, is one of the oldest musical institutions in Europe.
It was created thanks to the initiative of a group of Polish aristocrats and financiers: Natalia, Stefan and Stanisław Lubomirski, Maurycy and Tomasz Zamoyski, Władysław Tyszkiewicz, Leopold Julian Kronenberg (son of the founder of the Bank of Commerce) and, from the musical world: Ludwik Grossman, Emil Młynarski, Aleksander Rajchman, Marian Sokołowski, and others.
The architect Karol Kozłowski designed the building in the Viennese Secession style, modelling it on the Paris Opera.
