Traveling Back in Time to the Baroque

Every day this summer, Baroque masterpieces can be heard at St. Anne’s Church in Warsaw as part of the Baroque Church Organs Summer Festival.

The pieces are being performed live by renowned organists Przemysław Kapituła and Michał Sławecki. The selection of works played during each concert includes possibly the most famous composition written for the church organ, Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach. The organists are also performing works by Mieczysław Surzyński, the legendary organist of the Warsaw Metropolitan Cathedral, who was dubbed “The Polish Bach.”

St. Anne’s is one of the oldest, most beautiful and meticulously renovated churches in Warsaw. The building has a plethora of different architectural styles which shaped it over almost six centuries and retains many of its original interiors. The organs, which date back to the end of the 17th century, underwent thorough renovation, completed in 1992. The experience of listening to their exquisite sound is somewhat like traveling back in time, allowing listeners to hear what the Baroque compositions sounded like when they were written three or four centuries ago.

Concerts are held daily at noon until Sept. 24, except for Sundays and church holidays.
