The third disc in The Sixteen's acclaimed series of Polish music, conducted by Associate Conductor Eamonn Dougan, explores the work of Grzegorz Gerwazy Gorczycki (1665-1734). Regarded as the outstanding Polish composer of the high baroque, Gorczycki studiedin Prague and Vienna in his early years, and returned to Krak├│w where he was appointed Magister Capellae at Wawel Cathedral in 1698. Like his predecessor Bartlomiej Pekiel (featured on CRO 16110), Gorczycki wrote in both stile antico and stile moderno; the works featured on this recording display his skill in both genres. As the last great talent of the Polish Baroque era, Gorczycki is certainlydeserving of a wider audience.
