Wrocław Baroque Ensemble specialises in historically informed performance, having the main focus on exploration into uncommon repertoire from central Europe. The group presents a variety of early music, from chamber works to oratorios and cantatas, keeping a particular interest in heritage of Polish Renaissance and Baroque.

The international line-up of prominent instrumentalists and singers from the European countries (Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Germany and Poland) is the main core of the group. The group is a resident ensemble of the National Forum of Music in Wrocław and has been actively performing for almost ten years under the artistic leadership of Andrzej Kosendiak, who is also  its founder.

Wrocław Baroque Ensemble can boast an impressive recording catalogue, which includes a series of CD albums dedicated to a high quality Baroque repertoire featuring mainly by the Polish composers – Grzegorz Gerwazy Gorczycki, Barłomiej Pękiel,  Marcin Mielczewski, and Stanisław Sylwester Szarzyński. The series is available on Spotify and worldwide distributed by Naxos, earning positive reviews on: musicweb-international, classics today, and fanfare archive.

In 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2018 the albums were nominated to a prestigious Polish music award, Fryderyk. One of them, with music by Grzegorz Gerwazy Gorczycki was awarded the Wrocław Music Prize in 2013. In 2015, the group released The Salzburg Marian Mass by W.A. Mozart in collaboration with the NFM Boys’ Choir. The latest recording of the group comprising vocal and instrumental works by Marcin Mielczewski was released by CD Accord in November 2018.

The ensemble has been invited by renowned international festivals, such as International Festival Wratislavia Cantans, Emilia Romagna Festival, Usedomer Musikfestival, and Ohrid Summer Festival. In addition, the group regularly performs in Poland, preparing recently for new recordings.
