The fourth concert of the Chinese Lanterns Festival will be devoted to Polish and Turkish historical music. Paweł Iwaszkiewicz will perform with a band of Turkish Janissaries. Musicians will play on replicas of instruments from the times of the Battle of Vienna.
During the concert, it will be possible to learn about the Old-Polish fascination with the Orient.
The Royal Łazienki Museum has organised the Chinese Lanterns Festival since 2012. This is a part of the "Garden of Lights" international project designed to promote exceptional historic gardens and museums from across the world. Five residences cooperate within the project - apart from the Royal Łazienki Museum these are the Prince Pückler Park in Bad Muskau (Germany), Château de Lunéville (France), Tsarskoye Selo in Sankt Petersburg (Russia), Prince Kung’s Mansion in Beijing (China) and and Frederiksborg Slot in Hillerød (Denmark).
