Galway Early Music Festival- Music of the First Commonwealth

June 9 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Wrocław Baroque Ensemble (PL) and conductor Andrzej Kosendiak (PL)

The splendour of Venetian music stands at the heart of composer Mikołaj Zielenski’s works. The undeniable richness of music as heard in churches and basilicas of the ‘Most Serene Republic’, as Venice was known, wasn’t lost on musicians from further north. The Polish composer Zielenski wrote masses, offertories, and other sacred gems to compete with the best of his Italian contemporaries. Featuring a full Baroque ensemble of bowed and plucked strings, a vocal octet and the warm, burnished sound of historical brasswinds, festival audiences will be transported to 1600s Venice, as heard through the imagination of a man who was considered the finest Polish composer before Chopin: Zielenski, “the finest Venetian in Poland”.

Presented with support from Narodowe Forum Muzyki  |  National Forum of Music (Poland)
