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.
The wonder of performances awarded by public ovation.
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 beautiful Polish woman, the hope of the world’s orchestral conducting.
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.
Award-winning conductor Marzena Diakun came to international acclaim in Paris in the 2015/16 season after several concerts with Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France. Her prizes and awards include second prize at the prestigious 59th Prague Spring Competition for Conductors in Czech Republic and at the 9th Fitelberg International Competition for Conductors in Poland (2012), "Polityka Passport" for the best artist in the classical music in 2016 and nominee for the Classical Best Innovation Award in 2019. In September 2021 she will act as Artistic Director and Principal Chief Conductor with Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid (ORCAM).
