Arboretum

Planting trees is, after composing music, Penderecki’s greatest passion. Like composition, it is a specific type of creative work to which the composer dedicates himself twice a year, in spring then in autumn. In the extensive gardens of his country home at Lusławice east of Kraków, there are thousands of plants and a great diversity of rare species. DLandscape designs in various parts of the grounds have been inspired by different styles and cultures: from Far Eastern in the Japanese garden to Arcadian and Romantic. Penderecki is undoubtedly the most famous dendrologist of the musical world.
