Goldberg Baroque Ensemble

The Goldberg Baroque Ensemble, founded by Andrzej Szadejka in 2008, specializes in interpretations of vocal-instrumental music from ancient Gdańsk and Pomerania. The  ensemble’s baroque-classical repertoire is performed based on historical performance practice using appropriate instruments. The orchestra consists of Polish and foreign musicians, graduates of renowned European centers for early music (Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, Royal Academy of Music in London, Royal Conservatory in The Hague). The ensemble performs concerts in Poland and abroad. Among their achievements are 14 nominations for FRYDERYK and OPUS KLASSIK awards, premier CD and SACD recordings of Pomeranian music for Polish labels Dux and Sarton, and currently for the German label MDG.
