“PERFECTIONIST” with the Fryderyk Award

It is with great pleasure to inform you that the Perfectionist album (Sinfonia Varsovia, 2021) won the Fryderyk Award for Album of the Year – Concert Music. A year ago, Sinfonia Varsovia released this album to celebrate Jerzy Maksymiuk’s 85th birthday.

During the Classical Music Gala on “22 April” 2022 at the Castle Opera House in Szczecin, the award was accepted on behalf of the ensemble by Janusz Marynowski, the director of Sinfonia Varsovia, which released the album. This is the lucky thirteenth Fryderyk for the orchestra.
