The 17th and 18th centuries were filled with dramatic political and artistic turmoil in Poland – the once stable Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth was plagued by conflict from without and within. From the Italian and Dresden-influenced Chapel Royal in Warsaw to the rise of Poland’s own native masters, instrumental music began its ascension amidst a tapestry of war and economic decline. Examining this unique and relatively unknown repertoire, New Comma Baroque presents music by 17th-century pioneers Jarzębski, Mielczewski, Pękiel, Rohaczewski and Żelechowski as well as 18th-century masters Podbielski, Janitsch and Szarzyński. Join New Comma Baroque in our celebration and exploration of Polish culture.
