Wrocław Baroque Orchestra

Founded in 2006 by Andrzej Kosendiak, it is a resident ensemble of the Witold Lutosławski National Forum of Music, one of few cultural institutions in Poland boasting its own Baroque orchestra playing historical instruments. During each NFM concert season, WBO presents its own concert series, always ardently applauded by the audience. The WBO repertoire encompasses works from early Baroque to Romanticism, from chamber line-ups to large oratorios. The superb cellist Jarosław Thiel has been Artistic Director of WBO since its inception.

Today, Wrocław Baroque Orchestra counts among the most important Polish ensembles playing historical instruments. The orchestra’s output and high level of performance result in collaborations with the biggest names on the international early music scene. WBO has performed under the baton of Philippe Herreweghe, Giovanni Antonini, Andrew Parrott, Paul McCreesh, Andreas Spering, Hans-Christoph Rademann, Laurence Cummings,Rubén Dubrovsky, and Christian Curnyn. The orchestra has invited excellent ensembles
and soloists, and among them Collegium Vocale Gent, Cantus Cölln, Taverner Consort, Dresdner Kammerchor, Gli Angeli Genève, Olga Pasichnyk, Vivica Genaux, Julia Lezhneva, Renata Pokupić, Nicholas Mulroy, Daniel Taylor, and Aleksandra Kurzak. WBO guest performs at prestigious festivals, participates in radio broadcasts and recording sessions.

The first CD of WBO won a Fryderyk in the Phonographic Debut of the Year category, and the following recordings have been nominated for the same award several times. 2017 saw the release of a new album – Haydn The Seasons – a result of collaboration with Paul McCreesh and his Gabrieli Consort & Players (the disc was nominated for Gramophone Awards in the Best Choral Recording category and was a recording of the month of the BBC Music Magazine in June 2017). 2018 saw the release of the album with the premiere recording of the original version of Phantoms by Moniuszko (CD Accord), featuring WBO, and the album 17th-Century Sacred Music in Wrocław, recorded with Gli Angeli Genève and Concerto Palatino under the direction of Stephan MacLeod (Claves). The former received the Fryderyk 2019 in the Album of the Year – Choral Music, Oratorio and Opera category, the latter an International Classical Music Award 2019 in the Baroque Vocal category.
