Sinfonietta Cracovia, one of the premiere chamber orchestras of Europe, will present their flagship project combining film music and concert music of two great composers: Wojciech Kilar and Philip Glass, as part of the international tour Kilar 90.

The portrait that emerges, that of a composer’s voice, as applied to both realms of concert as well as commercial music reveals each composer’s musical identity.

The concert will feature performances with the young Polish pianist and composer Aleksander Dębicz, and the orchestra’s principal conductor, Katarzyna Tomala-Jedynak.

Philip Glass – Suite from The Hours (2002)
Philip Glass – Suite from Dracula (1931)
Wojciech Kilar – Orawa (1986)
Wojciech Kilar – Certain Light from The Portrait of a Lady (1996)
Wojciech Kilar – The Brides from Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)
Aleksander Dębicz – Sideways

Partners and patrons of the tour:

The tour is co-organized by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute within the “Programme of events accompanying the celebration of Wojciech Kilar’s 90th birthday (2022) and the 10th anniversary of his death (2023)” As well as the Polish Cultural Institute New York, PWM Edition, Supertrain Records and the City of Krakow.

Heavy traffic should be considered when planning your travel time. Take I-95 North out of Boston to Exit 45, then route 128 North to Exit 14. Turn right onto Route 133 to the very end of that highway, and with the ocean directly in front of you turn right onto Route 127. Approximately 3/4 of a mile from that intersection the road will begin to narrow. Look for a blue and white sign on your left for the castle, and turn onto Hesperus Avenue. The castle is just a few blocks down Hesperus Avenue on your left. Park in the lot off the street, and take the walkway and stairs down to the entrance.

Hammond Castle Museum is also accessible by Cape Ann Transportation Authority (CATA). To learn more, visit
