Summer Festivities of Early Music
The last two concerts of this year's Early Music Summer Festival feature Polish and German performers. The concert named Gallant Conversations will be performed by Polish virtuosos Anna Firlus (harpsichord) and Krzysztof Firlus (viola da gamba) who will bring the music of Johann Sebastian Bach together with the music of Christian Podbielski, Maciej Kamieński and Carl Friedrich Abel. The excellent German ensemble NeoBarock will close the festival with the concert entitled Pallas nordica which will offer up well-known masters including Alessandro Scarlatti, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer and Arcangelo Corelli.
