The official name of the Dominican church in Poznań is the Queen of the Holy Rosary’s Church. The temple belongs to the Dominican Order and is situated on the corner of Libelta Street and Niepodległości Avenue.
The eclectic temple is rectangular in shape, its style and arrangement referring to Roman basilicas. Two square-shaped towers and the portal entrance based on five Ionic columns became a characteristic feature of the Poznań’s landscape.
It won’t be the first time that the nostalgic sounds will fill the space of Dominican Church. During first edition of Nostalgia Festival Poznań in 2007 it hosted concerts of Francois Couturier, Anja Lechner (Nostalghia - Song for Tarkovsky) and the performances of the Estonian Filharmony Chamber Choir, which presented compositions by Alfred Schnittke and Arvo Pärt. Nostalgia echoed through the Domican Church for the second time in 2009 with a concert Responsoria by Carlo Gesualdo.
This year the Dominican Church will for three consecutive evenings become a stage of multicultural music dialogue – the fusion between sound of two great composers – Armenian Tigran Mansurian and American Elliott Carter.
