Description
 
The reign of Zygmunt III (1587-1632 and Wladyslaw IV (1632-1648) of the Vasa dynasty marked the last stage of the flourishing of Old Polish culture.  It coincided with the heyday of the development of Warsaw, which became the capital of a vast and powerful state.  Adam Jarzebski's "Gosciniec abo krotkie opisanie Warszawy" (A Traveller's Token Gift or a Brief Description of Warsaw), the first guide to the city, dating from 1643, described Warsaw as a town covered in gardens, boasting ornamental palaces, majestic churches and opulent burgher houses.  Both kings were connoisseurs of the arts.  Thanks to their patronage, the notions of Baroque art, which encountered much resistance in other countries, found their way into Poland very early.  This was true of architecture and the visual arts, as well as music.
Zygmunt II himself practiced the arts, notably painting and goldsmithery.  He also sang in the family circle.  He imported numerous painters, architects and sculptors from Italy, including the royal architect Giovanni Trevano and an outstanding painter Tommaso Dolabella.  The king was also very fond of music, particularly polyphonic singing, and had a sizeable complement of highly-skilled musicians at his court.  His son, Wladyslaw IV, was fond of music and theatre.  During a journey to Italy undertaken in 1624-1625 he relished its lalvish operatic productions so much that having returned to Warsaw he decided to establish a permanent opera company at the Polish royal court.  The first such theatre north of the Alps, it enjoyed considerable reputation among foreign visitors to Poland.  

The Baroque Instruments Ensemble IL TEMPO was founded in 1990 on the initiative of Agata Sapiecha, its leader ever since.  It performs instrumental and vocal-instrumental music from early Baroque to the classic period, on authentic instruments and according to the performance practice of the period.
