Poland's 'Crazy Day' a treat for classical music fans

6th July 2011, Comments 0 comments

Poland has organised a classical music festival in the capital this autumn, which will pack 70 concerts into a four-day period.

The "Szalone Dni Muzyki" (Crazy Day of Music) festival, will run from September 29 to October 2 in Warsaw, organisers said, featuring music by Brahms, Liszt, Mahler and Strauss.

"These are short concerts, each lasting around 50 minutes, with ticket prices that put them within the range of a broader public," the festival's French artistic director Rene Martin told reporters.

Tickets cost 10 zloty (2.50 euros, $3.60).

The festival, in its second year, is a spin-off of France's "La Folle Journee", held in the city of Nantes in Brittany, western France.

A total of 27,000 people attended the 2010 edition, but organisers are hoping to double that this year.
