Booked tickets on-line several days beforehand. Arrived at the venue to be told that he concert is cancelled. No email or text message notification. I'll give them a benefit of the doubt, maybe they'd just found out with 15 minutes to go, that the musicians couldn't make it. However, we didn't receive any apologies even afterwards. I tried emailing the address given in the original email with the tickets, but the email came back as "address invalid". Several days later, tried emailing a different address found on their website, again, no reply. I did however receive a refund on Saturday (concert was scheduled for previous Tuesday). Again, no email, apologies or explanation.

We booked and pre-paid for our tickets for this event on Travelocity and the man at the door, Marek Prokopik, looked at our vouchers and refused us entry unless we paid him again. His reason was that Travelocity didn’t pay him for the tickets, which I find very difficult to believe as I have been booking excursions, airline tickets and hotels with them for many years now and have never had an issue. All other experiences in Poland and with Polish people have been wonderful. I was with 3 other travelers, and we were so looking forward to a relaxing evening of Chopin; instead we were humiliated and did not get to see the concert and the gatekeeper Marek was so happy to deny us entry. Total scam. No wonder this very small concert hall was 1/2 empty. Shame on you Chopin Concerts for treating visitors to your country in such a disgraceful manner. And double shame on you Marek Pokopik for being so rude to Chopin lovers.

The pianist Witold Wilczek is an amazing performer : we had a very great time listening to Chopin's music. The place is also awesome creating a perfect atmosphere for a classic concert. Moreover, the receptionist was welcoming. As a conclusion, a perfect evening !

Really nothing short of fantastic. We had the pleasure of seeing Paweł Kubica whose expertise was very evident throughout.
We had originally come to see Klezmer in that same venue, but the show was cancelled. The host was very kind and fixed the mistake promptly, inviting us to see the Chopin concert instead, and we weren’t disappointed! Very professional environment. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.

I went 4 times to these concerts during my stay in Krakow. It was certainly a highlight to experience some classical music, particularly Chopin.

The room was lovely with numerous images connected to Chopin's life. The piano sounded fantastic. I received a warm welcome each time I arrived.

I was sometimes in a generous mood and would have tipped the musicians, quite a lot. But they all stayed in their room afterwards so I didn't meet them to pass on some money. (They might wish to stay in their room if they are shy or don't wish to meet patrons. If they can't speak English or another language. Or shielding, as people from all over the world, including perhaps red list countries visit.) I did see a tip plate on my last visit but I decided not to leave anything extra as I wasn't to know if all of it went to the musicians: split with managers, the owners, are tips pulled them split.

The hall gives musicians a good opportunity to perform and be exposed to the pressure of performing. All of them were on top form. (One did make a couple of mistakes but to the untrained ear it might not be noticed and these things happen in live events.) The musicians are all playing from memory, for an hour and none of them used sheet music as they knew the music so we'll.

I don't think one needs to be a tourist to enjoy these concerts, but it did seem that only tourists attend.

Although I enjoyed them thoroughly, every one. It might have been interesting to hear, perhaps, just one night, a variety of composers that influenced Chopin and his contemporaries. Perhaps some Chopin songs with a singer.

I spent two weeks in Krakow, and these concerts were certainly a highlight. I did return and heard the same pianist doing the exact same program as I enjoyed it so much.

My boyfriend and I spent a lovely evening at the Chopin concert at the Chopin Gallery. We are both classical music aficionados and I in particular love Chopin, so this was a real treat. For the length and quality of the concert, the price (around $15-$20 per person, I can't remember exactly how much) is fairly inexpensive (especially by American standards) and a glass of wine is included. The pianist we heard was Ireneusz Boczek, by far the most stoic pianist to play Romantic music. The music itself is beautiful and timeless and we enjoyed Boczek's interpretation.

Amazing experience definitely worth coming! The pianist Witold Wilczek is a truly talented young man and no surprise he has won so many awards and scholarships.
To be able to play Chopin you need to be skilled and experienced and Witold was both but also passionate.
Thank you for the beautiful performance!!

We very much enjoyed the concert tonight. We were warmly welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine and a little introductory speech about Chopin’s life. The musician, Radislaw Gozdzlikowski, played wonderfully some of Chopin’s best-known pieces. It was a delight listening to him as well as watching him play with such skill and virtuosity.

Nobody should leave Krakow without listening to a Chopin concert in this intimate and ellegant concert space. The young polish pianist R. Gozdikowsky performed outstandly some of the most famous pieces of Chopin. We foresee a brilliant future for this musician. Congratulations Radoslaw!!
The Chopin Gallery is located in the center of the town and the space is very well decorated, making possible an intimate atmosphere, ideal to enjoy the music of Chopin.

Location was very nice and welcome drink was good. However, the pianist was clearly intending to finish the concert early and, perhaps because they assumed the crowd would not know much about Chopin and classical music, played extremely fast (maybe he needs to go off for something else?), with poor technique and little emotion. It is not that the pianist is not well trained - I found videos of his playing online (and of the same piece performed!) and he is very talented. However, the entire concert was just rushed and failed to express the beauty of any of the pieces in the programme. I would rather have a shorter programme but to have actually decent representations of Chopin’s masterpieces. Do not recommend.
