For the first time,on the 21st of March, Krakow will become a part of the network of cities promoting European heritage and its early music part in particular – all thanks to the Misteria Paschalia Festival, which made the Baroque and Renaissance music one of the defining characteristics of our city. The first day of spring is the birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach, and the annual festival of early music, celebrated throughout Europe. This year we become a part of it and together with Jordi Savall and Le Concert des Nations ensemble we proudly join the rich programme of the 4th European Day of Early Music.

Ottavio Dantone and his Accademia Bizantina ensemble are well known to Polish listeners – and those in Krakow in particular. This time, at the conclusion of the Misteria Paschalia festival, the Italian musicians will present one of George Frideric Handel’s last masterpieces – the oratorio Belshazzar. The outstanding artists will be accompanied – not for the first time – by the excellent Capella Cracoviensis choir.

For one hundred hears, he was famous mainly because Johann Sebastian Bach travelled 400 km and took advantage of the trust of his superiors, in order to listen to him play for three months. Today, Dieterich Buxtehude, the famous organist from Lübeck, speaks with his own voice. It is a singing voice – not that of an organ – since we have long known that as a composer, he did not limit himself to keyboard instruments, but that vocal music was an important part of his work. It’s not surprising that Bach found it difficult to leave Buxtehude – there was no better model for his own work. During the festival, the old master’s music will be presented by an ensemble that feels right at home in a Bach repertoire – Vox Luminis, who are making their debut at Misteria Paschalia.
