Marzena Diakun

Opinions & Critics

  • The wonder of performances awarded by public ovation.
    Le dauphine libere, 2016
  • 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!
    Alain Cochard, November 2015
  • Her sophistication, intelligence and musicality present in all her performances, made her a winner.
    Gramophone, January 2013
  • A beautiful Polish woman, the hope of the world’s orchestral conducting.
    Polish Radio, Programm II, 2012
  • One of the world’s best conductors of the young generation: Marzena Diakun.
    Elżbieta Krajewska, May 2015
  • 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.
    Richard Rosenberg
  • 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.
    Marc Vignal, November 2015
