5th International Music Festival of Central and Eastern Europe Eufonie
17th – 25th November, various venues, Warsaw
Eufonie as a festival refers to the traditions of Central and Eastern Europe but goes beyond strict geographical definitions to present the musical heritage of a region that stretches from the Balkans to the Baltic countries, and even Scandinavia. This area is a fascinating melting pot of clashing influences from the East and the West, bursting with cultural energy.

As in previous editions, it will be presented in classical, experimental, jazz, and traditional forms.
Renowned orchestras, outstanding soloists and extraordinary conductors will perform at the festival: BBC Symphony Orchestra, Vadim Gluzman, Leonora Armellini, Tomasz Konieczny, Thomas Sanderling, Zsolt Nagy, Olari Elts, Marek Moś, Tomáš Netopil, Anna Sułkowska-Migoń (winner of the La Maestra 2022 competition), RTV Symphony Orchestra Slovenia, Sinfonia Varsovia, Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava, Slovak Sinfonietta Žilina, AUKSO, Hover State Chamber Choir and many others.
