Arte dei Suonatori
Representation of the affetti of Baroque and Empfindsamkeit is the central idea of this program by Arte dei Suonatori, one of the most renowned baroque orchestras in Europe. Outstanding young soloists Marta Gawlas (flute), Joanna Kreft (violin), Justin Bland (trumpet), and bass-baritone Uku Joller, a beloved veteran of the Haapsalu festival, will take turns in performing works by J. V. Meder, A. Vivaldi, E. W. Wolf, J. W. Hertel.
The leader of the orchestra is Aureliusz Goliński.
Arte dei Suonatori, founded in 1993 by the violinists Ewa Golińska and Aureliusz Goliński, is one of the most interesting Polish orchestras specializing in the performance of baroque and classical music.
The orchestra has now an international character, and its permanent members include musicians from Poland, Germany, England, the Netherlands, Japan, France, Finland, Sweden and Denmark.
The albums released by the orchestra have been enthusiastically received by international music critics and have often been praised by the professional press (Diapason d’Or, Gramophone Editor’s Choice, Choc du Monde de la Musique, Luister 10, 10 de Repertoire, Classics Today, Classic CD). Their album containing the La Stravaganza series of violin concertos was recognized as the Baroque Album of the Year for 2003 by the British magazine Gramophone.
