Owner description: To any Chopin aficionado, concerts of the piano master's musical works present themselves as a real treat. Pieces from the oeuvre of the legendary composer, renowned both in Poland and worldwide, are performed regularly all year round. The concerts highlight Chopin's most popular piano works, as performed by such notable pianists as, among others. 14 Slawkowska Street An old historical tenement house called "Dębinskim" or "Under Barrel".The house was built in the 15th century as an one-storeyed building and it was restructured thoroughly in the middle of the 16th century.After that the house became the property of a Royal Hunter named Kaspar Dębinski who worked for the Royal Family in the Wawel Castle.He ordered to add the second floor and then the house's facade was decorated with paintings presenting different kinds of weapons.At present you can see extraordinary the 19th century staircase with its original richly ornameted railing made of iron leading to the concert hall The concert hall is dedicated to F.Chopin was as one of the greatest composers of all time.

“Nice Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

I booked this concert before we arrived with Viator.com who arranged everything so we were able to print the voucher and just turn up on the evening. The pianist is very talented and made Chopin sound amazing. The Bonerowski Palace is a lovely setting for such an evening. The Palace is easy to find being opposite the main square.

“A beautiful concert by a talented young pianist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

There are a number of Chopin concerts on offer in Krakow. Do your research carefully and decide which gives the best value. I decided on the concert at Bonerowski Palace, located on one side of the Main Market Square, which is now a luxury hotel. On the first floor is an intimate performance room where four young rising stars in the field of classical music entertain guests. The pianist on the night I went was Witold Wilczek, who I think is a name to watch . Tickets must be booked between 6 - 7pm for the 7pm performance. The seats are numbered, so go early and get a seat as close to the front as possible, so you can see the pianist's hands. The price is 54.99 zloty and the performance lasts just over one hour, with a glass of wine included in the price. The concerts are held every night of the year.

“Fantastic evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Although our venue was changed last minute from the palace, we were relocated to an equally lovely place. The pianist of the evening was exquisite and it was a wonderful hour of escapism from the hustle and bustle down below. Highly recommended!

“An hour of bliss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

We were advised to phone Andrew (the organiser) directly on 604093570. Not sure if this was financially better or worse than other means, but he certianly looks after those who book by this method. We had seats on the front row and were well positioned to watch the pianist hands as he played - a must if you want to understand how difficult to play are many of the Chopin pieces. The room is a lovely old 13-14th century restored room, with a fantastic painted mural around its upper walls and a magnificent wooden ceiling. The pianist was very good, and was introduced as a member of the University's music department. My wife is the talented musician and she appreciated the concert from start to finish, there were a few minor errors but this does not detract from how difficult it is to play his music as several of the pieces were very complex. All in all a lovely hour spent in beautiful surroundings. .

“Magical Concert Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

We went to Chopin piano concerts at different locations two nights in a row, and fell completely in love. Just ask in one of the tourist booths. For a very reasonable price you will get a completely magical concert experience by a world class pianst in a beautiful setting. Strongly recommended, even if you aren't really into classical music. You will not regret it!
