The Period Instrument Orchestra of the Interdepartmental Unit of Early Music

Artis­tic Direc­tor — Aga­ta Sapiecha, DMus Hab.

The orches­tra has exist­ed for a cou­ple of years already under the direc­tion of Aga­ta Sapiecha. Bring­ing this ini­tia­tive to life was only pos­si­ble thanks to the coop­er­a­tion with the Acad­e­my of Music in Cra­cow, and espe­cial­ly to Prof. Elż­bi­eta Stefańska’s com­mit­ment. At present, a few uni­ver­si­ties in Poland, and some­times also for­eign teach­ers and stu­dents par­tic­i­pate in it. Annu­al meet­ings of stu­dents and teach­ers dur­ing the sub­se­quent edi­tions of the Ear­ly Music Forum at the FCUM, as well as per­for­mances as part of the con­cert cycles or fes­ti­vals orga­nized by Pol­ish uni­ver­si­ties (e.g. Bach Days in Cra­cow), strength­en this coop­er­a­tion, and at the same time give the pos­si­bil­i­ty of devel­op­ment in artis­tic and didac­tic dis­ci­plines. Vocal-and-instru­men­tal projects, which are so impor­tant for ear­ly music, pre­sent­ed as part of the “Pas­sion Con­certs” and the “Advent Con­certs”, are a result of the coop­er­a­tion between the Inter­de­part­men­tal Unit of Ear­ly Music and the Chair of Vocal Stud­ies.
