The wonder of performances awarded by public ovation.
A beautiful Polish woman, the hope of the world’s orchestral conducting.
Her musicality is exceptional and based upon solid scholarship paired with fine instinct. I would rate her at the very top five percentile of her profession.
A superb interpretation, not attributed to the musical director ‘Mikko Franck’, not present for personal reasons, but due to his assistant director, the Polish conductor Marzena Diakun.
One of the world’s best conductors of the young generation: Marzena Diakun.
Marzena Diakun pays it justice, we hold our breath, and we test the acoustics of the newly renovated auditorium… A long applause from the audience, and from the orchestra for the young assistant director. Marzena Diakun: remember the name!
Her sophistication, intelligence and musicality present in all her performances, made her a winner.
Marzena Diakun rapidly gained international acclaim after substituting Mikko Franck for several concerts with Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France during her assistantship in Paris in the 2015/16 season. Some of these concerts were broadcasted by France Musique and Medici.tv.
She approved her international level receiving second prize at the prestigious 59th Prague Spring Competition for Conductors in Czech Republic and second prize at the 9th Fitelberg International Competition for Conductors in Poland (2012). She was awarded by the 4th International Lutoslawski Conducting Competition (2006).
