This is one of our few festivals which every time and again, change their formula, in search for a new repertoire, and, hence – for a new audience. This is quite a risky undertaking, as not everyone who followed the programme of the Sacrum Profanum in the past, comes to this festival today. Give and take. The recipients have changed (perhaps not entirely), yet what is most important is that their group is by no means smaller now. Quite contrary – there are more of them. And this is a success already – Jacek Hawryluk writes in the recent issue of Ruch Muzyczny [Muscial Current].Classic!Now cycle - watch a special documentary

The Kronos Quartet’s Residency, connected with the 40th anniversary of the group, is the essence of contemporary American music, where the academic nature resounds in harmony with the avant-garde.

Such a presentation couldn’t miss the fathers of minimalism: Terry Riley, Philip Glass, and Steve Reich. Watch a special documentary from Kronos Quartet Residency concerts.

The Krakow festival has never seen such a finale, reminiscent of a good old rave. On Sunday at dawn the 12th Sacrum Profanum came to an end at the Forum Przestrzenie club, with the event celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Warp label. (…) The New Sacrum Profanum triumphs with record-breaking audience attendance. The open box with surprises is deep. It overflows with a sea of music of your choice – you are free to combine, mix, process, revamp. This contemporary cultural remix offers a lot off opportunities. Its taste is up to the one who makes the compound – writes Jacek Hawryluk of the Polish Radio.

The very essence of the festival philosophy is well expressed by the Kronos Quartet which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. The group has revolutionised the sound and thinking about a string quartet and during its three-day residency at the Łaźnia Nowa it showed its diverse and complex nature.
