The performance was essentially a duet with piano and soprano. Very rich and articulate soprano with an easy to digest programme! Just surprised that while they offered us wine and cake in the end what they meant was wine OR cake. But that did not detract from the entire experience at all.

The first thing our group saw was the palace on an island in the lake. It was picturesque when viewed from the bridge across the lake. When seated in the grand salon we were entertained by a world renowned pianist for a 45 minute recital. The acoustics were beautiful and the music selections were familiar and brought tears to my...

This recital did not in any way reflect the sales pitch. Sold as a romantic Chopin recital starting at 1930 hrs. It started at 1900hrs. The pianist was not as advertised. The wine was plonk and the traditional Polish cake as dry as sticks. There were only 8 of us in a bare room with creaky wooden seats. Not a... More

Dear Visitor, Since last summer Chopin live concerts are organized not only in our salon. It is very positive sign, that Warsaw express its desire to be a city of music, city of Chopin. Thank you for your feedback, however not about our salon, you didn't visit as on Smolna street #14. Our salon is presenting Chopin music every day... More

classical music for me is special. always changes based on my particular mood at the moment. this place, well - allows you to approach classical music but in a light, user friendly way. no suits, high heels etc. just jeans, and peace. enjoy

Uniquely Polish...a glass of wine included with admission. Pianist plays in very low light. Very relaxing.

This concert was arranged by our tour company but it was great. The performer played several Chopin pieces on the piano. She was excellent. It was not air conditioned so it was warm

The music and the hotel is great, The lady came up this excellent idea is from the State, a glass of white wine and cake in the back yard before the music is a joy.

We saw this advertised and decided to give it a try: located in a charming little hotel, we were served wine and cookies before entering the salon where a college music major performed Chopin on the piano for about 35 minutes. There were only 8 of us at the concert, but it was charming and just "right" in the land... More

There seem to be a lot of advertisements for Chopin concerts around the city. We did not expect much from this one but it really was a treat. The parlor is a little shabby chic, the glass of wine was a nice touch but Polish wine is nothing to write home about, but we heard two musicians who played strikingly... More
