wawel at dusk.
i’d seen posters for concerts at wawel, but had never really been interesting in going. a few weekends ago, having not yet been up to wawel this summer, i decided to check out the summer "wawel at dusk" concert program.
the dafo string quartet were scheduled to play a concert of mozart, schulhoff, tchaikovsky, and penderecki. not wanting to pass that up, i bought a ticket and as the sun started to dip in the sky, i headed up to the castle. i don’t think i’ll ever tire of the views from up there.
it was a particularly nice time of day on a particularly pleasant evening. on my way to the batory courtyard for the concert, i took a minute to appreciate the sun setting on the wisla.
the concert itself was very good. the program certainly covered a lot of ground musically. the shift from mozart to tchaikovsky to early penderecki was pretty extreme! and the setting was, of course, lovely.
music at wawel…bringing together things i love for a wonderful saturday evening.
