Description: Zieleński was the first Polish composer to publish his works in Italy: a huge collection of sacred works originating from Venice in 1611 and including a pair of instrumental fantasias featured on this album. Jarzebski was another cosmopolitan figure, a violinist who worked in royal courts in Germany and Italy and whose music naturally absorbs the idioms of his adopted countries. Mielczewski was a colleague of Jarzebsky’s at the royal Polish court under the period of Swedish occupation, and Kaspar Foerster studied under Carissimi in Rome before returning to Warsaw and then to Danzig, the city of his birth; his Italianate compositions include the trio sonatas which here receive their first recordings. 2 CDs. Ensemble Giardino di Delizie; Ewa Anna Augustinowicz (violin).
