The ensemble has performed with such illustrious conductors as Hermann Abendroth, George Georgescu, Zdeněk Mácal, Jerzy Maksymiuk, Stanisław Skrowaczewski, Antoni Wit and Carlo Zecchi, as well as with outstanding soloists, including Martha Argerich, Piotr Beczała, Rafał Blechacz, Ida Haendel, Aleksandra Kurzak, Garrick Ohlsson, David and Igor Oistrakh, Emmanuel Pahud, Maurizio Pollini, Julian Rachlin, Samuel Ramey, Vadim Repin, Svyatoslav Richter, Mstislav Rostropovich, Arthur Rubinstein and Krystian Zimerman.

The orchestra has toured throughout Europe and given concerts at numerous international music festivals. Since 1952 the ensemble has accompanied the finalists of the Henryk Wieniawski International Violin Competitions in Poznań. A number of contemporary Polish and foreign composers have entrusted the orchestra with first performances of their compositions.
