The breakthrough in the Orchestra's history was winning the Herbert von Karajan Silver Medal at the International Meeting of Young Orchestras in West Berlin in 1976. The Orchestra co-operates with world famous soloists, takes part in festivals, makes numerous tours of Europe, both Americas,  Asia and the Far East and performs in the most famous concert halls in the world (including e.g. La Scala).

Agnieszka Duczmal
Agnieszka Duczmal is the founder, the exclusive conductor and art director of the Chamber Orchestra of the Polish Radio "Amadeus", and also the first woman conductor to perform in the famous La Scala in Milan. The recognition won with the audience and critique is confirmed by enthusiastic reviews and also by prizes, among others an honourable mention at the 4th Hrbert von Karajan International Conductor Contest in Berlin (1975), the Herbert von Karajan silver medal at the International Young Orchestra Meeting in West Berlin (1976) and the title of "La donna del mondo" 1982 ("The woman of the world") granted under UNESCO's patronage by the president of Itly in recognition for the outstanding cultural, scientific and social achievements. She graduated with honours from the State College of Music in Poznan (1966-1971) where she studied conducting tutored by Professor Witold Krzeminski. Then she began to work as a conductor assistant in the State Philharmonic in Poznan and a conductor in Poznan Opera, where she prepared, among others, the Polish premiere of an opera by B. Britten "The Midsummer Night's Dream".
When she was still a student she founded the Chamber Orchestra (1968) later transformed into the Chamber Orchestra of the Polish Radio and Television (1977), and then into the Chamber Orchestra of the Polish Radio " Amadeus" (1988) with which she has been visiting the most famous concert halls in the world, making many recordings: over 8000 minutes of music recorded for the Polish Radio and Television, WDR, NDR, BBC and the French and Mexican Television, hosting excellent soloists and promoting young talent.

Agnieszka Duczmal formed the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra of Polish Radio in 1968 and has been the ensemble's Managing and Artistic Director ever since.
Muzyk also seems to emphasise beauty over humour - though Duczmal and the orchestra do not forget this vital aspect of Mozart performance.
