Arte dei Suonatori
Arte dei Suonatori, a Baroque orchestra formed in Poznań (Poland) in 1993 by violinists Ewa and Aureliusz Goliński, is one of the most recognisable Polish ensembles on the international music scene. Their repertoire exceeds 600 compositions representing a wide range of styles and forms of 17th- and 18th-century music, as well as contemporary pieces.
Alongside performances throughout Europe and the United States, they have co-created and co-organised five significant festival series in Poland. Their concert cycle “Early Music-Persona Grata” is the largest in Poland dedicated to historically-informed performance, having expanded rapidly from its beginnings in 1998. Their concerts have been broadcast by many major European radio stations including the BBC, NDR, Danish Radio DR, Polish Radio PR2, and recorded by Polish Television.
Since its formation, the orchestra has worked with a wide range of major figures of the Early Music world. Among more than forty outstanding soloists and conductors, particularly fruitful and inspiring collaborations have been developed with artists such as Martin Gester, Rachel Podger, Alexis Kossenko, Bolette Roed, Hidemi Suzuki, Eduardo López Banzo, Reinhard Goebel, Dan Laurin, Ruby Hughes, Hille Perl, and Roberta Invernizzi. The orchestra’s approach and unique way of music-making have enjoyed great international interest testified by awards for their recordings such as Gramophone Awards, Diapason d’Or, Choc du Monde de la Musique, Luister 10, 10 de Repertoire, Gramophone Editor’s Choice, Gramophone CD of the Month, Classics Today, and Prelude Orchestral CD of the Year.
