American Power of Attraction!

This year’s La Folle Journée Festival ended late on Sunday, 28 September! The Festival has been held in Poland since 2010, drawing an ever larger audience, proving that music which is usually associated with the rigid atmosphere of the concert hall can be served in a very attractive way.

Jazz and the Avant-garde Concert Madness

La Folle Journée is a festival intended for audiences who have encountered classical music only a few times in their lives, or not at all. To show the widest possible spectrum of American music, the organisers have enhanced the festival programme to include jazz played by great performers of improvised music.

In the 20th century, America became a second homeland to artists from all over the world. Highly original and diverse works created by the immigrants became a valued element of United States’ national legacy. The best-known American composers are George Gershwin, Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein.

Musicals, film, jazz, great symphonic composers and minimalists: programme of the 5th edition of the La Folle Journée Festival

Freedom, modernity, optimism, multiculturalism – these are traits that may be associated with America and, undoubtedly, such are the traits of American music. Enormous variety is what the organisers of the La Folle Journée Festival are giving the audience, proposing a look at American musical culture from many different angles.
