Arte dei Suonatori

Arte dei Suonatori is a Baroque orchestra who has managed to capture the true essence of the Baroque era. The musicians have adopted not only the knowledge, but also the 18th century way of thinking about music. The ensemble was formed in Poznań (Poland) in 1993 by the violin players Ewa and Aureliusz Golinski, who gathered together a group of the most talented young Polish period-instrument performers. The core of the ensemble were originally Polish string and continuo players, but over the years the orchestra has become more international, featuring as regular members musicians from, among others, Germany, England, Holland, France and Ireland. Since 1998, the orchestra has initiated an extensive series of early music events which very quickly evolved to become „Early Music – Persona Grata”, a festival which is considered today to be an integral part of the Polish musical culture scene.

In the course of years Arte dei Suonatori was also the co- creator and co- organiser of several other festivals, including “Music in Paradise” in Paradyz, “Haendel Festival” in Torun, “Baroque Bows and Strings Festival” in Poznan, “Three Baroques Festival” in Wroclaw and “Midsommer Barok” in Copenhagen. The orchestra regularly cooperates with distinguished soloists and conductors from all over the world, with whom they appear on some of Europe’s best known recording labels, including BIS Records, Alpha and Channel Classics.
