The idea – play together in clarinet octet – was born thanks to Dr. Barbara Borowicz - group's clarinet teacher and player herself. The band originated from willing to music, similar experiences and mainly friendship, which you can hear for the first sounds. Until now the Krakow Clarinet Clarinet Octet performed during ClarinetFest in Ostend and 8th European Clarinet Festival in Győr. For this group was especially written pieces by composer from Kosovo – Artan Hasani.Clarinetists were trying to choose pieces which are reflecting wide spectrum of emotions, to show our music. All members of this clarinet ensemble are currently learning at Academy of Music in Krakow in Poland and are laureates of national and international competitions in solo and chamber music category. Each of them had encountered many performances – as soloists, in chamber ensembles and orchestras. The repertoire is very wide, since the era of classicism by contemporary music, after the great arrangement of entertainment hits. Thanks to such a wide spectrum ensemble can charm the music of every type of audience.
