The works of Grzegorz Gerwazy Gorczycki are today recognized both as valuable records of early Polish music and above all as compositions of great aesthetic value. They constitute a concert repertoire yet fulfill a somewhat different function than during the composer’s times. Musicians, reaching today for the works of the Wawel Kapellmeister written three centuries ago, search for specific interpretive means of attaining an optimal sound and extracting fully the artistic qualities of his music. A perfect outcome of such research is the performance of works featured in this recording.
