Amadeus Chamber Orchestra of Polish Radio was founded in Poznań in 1968 by Agnieszka Duczmal. Initially, it existed under the patronage of “Jeunesses Musicales”, and later of the Poznań Music Society. The winning of the Herbert von Karajan silver medal at the International Young Orchestra Meeting in West Berlin in 1977 resulted in transforming it into the Polish Radio and Television Orchestra, and later into the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra of Polish Radio conducted by Agnieszka Duczmal.

The most famous concert halls where the Orchestra has performed include Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Philharmonic concert halls in Berlin, Cologne, Munich and St. Petersburg, Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Musikvereinsaal in Vienna, Pollack Hall in Montreal, Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, La Scala in Milan, Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall. The Orchestra regularly participates in many European music festivals.

Since 2009 the second conductor of the Orchestra has been Anna Duczmal-Mróz. This feminine duet is a global phenomenon.


"There is no doubt about it: the Polish Radio Chamber Orchestra is one of the crack ensembles of our time."

„The Gazette”, Montreal (Canada)


The most famous Polish female conductor was born in a family with musical traditions. In 1971 she graduated with distinction from the State Higher School of Music in Poznań where she studied conducting in the class of professor Witold Krzemiński. In the same year she started working as an assistant conductor in the State Philharmonic Orchestra in Poznań and then as a conductor in Poznań Opera where she prepared, among other things, a Polish premiere of Benjamin Britten’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, a premiere of Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto and Sergey Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet. When she was still a student she founded a chamber orchestra in 1968, which was transformed into the Polish Radio and Television Chamber Orchestra in 1977, and then into the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra of Polish Radio. Since the very beginnings of the Orchestra Agnieszka Duczmal has been its managing and artistic director.

Agnieszka Duczmal travels extensively with her Orchestra to perform with world class soloists in prestigious concert halls in Europe, Americas, Africa and Asia.

Agnieszka Duczmal was a member of the jury in national and international music competitions such as: the Eurovision Young Musicians 2012, Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition and Tadeusz Ochlewski Composers' Competition in 2012.

„Agnieszka Duczmal[…]is first-rate in the creation of orchestral colours.

To this day, the orchestra has participated in many prestigious concerts and festivals, including: the Probaltica Festival, Bydgoszcz Jazz Festival, Pomeranian Jazz Festival, European Jazz Meetings and XXXI International Festival of Traditional Jazz – Old Jazz Meeting „Złota Tarka”. It also performed a series of concerts in the Royal Baths, Wilanow Palace, Pomeranian Philharmonic and Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz and many others. Eljazz Big-Band is also a laureate of national and international competitions.

Eljazz Big-Band regularly cooperates with excellent musicians, including: Jan “Ptaszyn” Wróblewski, Krzysztof Herdzin, Lora Szafran, Janusz Szrom, Henryk Miśkiewicz, Maciej Sikała and Adam Wendt.

Eljazz Big-Band has also released his album entitled “Wspomnienia” (Memories). This album includes songs from the 1920s and 1930s (the period between the First and Second Wars) and the vocal parts were performed by Lora Szafran. The album received excellent reviews, both from jazz-lovers and critics. With this program, the orchestra has performed many times both in Poland and abroad.

The most important artistic achievement of the orchestra is its newest project involving outstanding arrangers and soloists –"W rytmie Chopina" (In the rhythm of Chopin). This is a specially selected set of Fryderyk Chopin’s compositions arranged for the big band and symphony orchestra. This special concert shows the craftsmanship of the great composer and the beauty of his music, but in a completely different, innovative way.
