The Second Praga Festival of Chamber and Church Organ Music continues in Warsaw until Oct. 4. Festival concerts are held every Saturday and Sunday at the oldest historic religious building in the eastern part of Warsaw, the Church of Our Lady of Loreto at 5a Ratuszowa St.

Program

Sept. 19, 7 p.m.
Concert Inspired by Works by Krzysztof Komeda
Paweł Gusnar (sax), Jan Bokszczanin (organ)
An intriguing combination of the saxophone and church organ in an unusual set of compositions. Not entirely jazz and not entirely classical music, works by Krzysztof Komeda will be played in new arrangements, alongside compositions dedicated to the memory of Komeda. This will be the first public performance of some of them.

Sept. 20, 7 p.m.
La musique des femmes
Izabella Kłosińska (soprano), Joanna Łukaszewska (mezzo-soprano) and Ewa B±k (church organ) from Bielsko-Biała.
The concert will feature opera diva Kłosińska performing sacral pieces.

Sept. 26, 7 p.m.
Duets for Flute and Organs
Duo Consonantes: Joanna Woszczuk-Garbacz (flute) and Jakub Garbacz from ŁódĽ
Music in arrangements for the flute and church organ, instruments which form a perfect harmony together.

Sept. 27, 7 p.m.
Handel/Haydn/Mendelssohn
Prima Vista Quartet and Jarosław Ciecierski (church organ) from Olsztyn.
The concert will mark three anniversaries: 250 years since the death of George Frideric Handel and 200 years since the death of Joseph Haydn and Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy.

Oct. 3, 7 p.m.
Janusz Strobel Trio: Janusz Strobel (guitar), Mariusz Bohdanowicz (double bass), Piotr Biskupski (drums)
Strobel is one of Poland's greatest jazz guitarists. Together with his band, he will play music specially selected for a church setting.

Oct. 4, 7 p.m.
Early Music-Viola da Gamba and Harpsichord
Paolo Pandolfo (viola da gamba) from Rome, and Alina Ratkowska (harpsichord) from Gdańsk.
Pandolfo is one of the finest virtuosos of the almost forgotten instrument that is the viol (also called the viola da gamba). Pandolfo has for many years worked with the brilliant Jordi Savall and he also teams up with the best early music performers to play a number of projects he has written.
