One of the most important concerts of this edition of the festival is the result of cooperation between two excellent ensembles: {oh!} Orkiestra Historyczna led by Martyna Pastuszka, festival’s ensemble-in-residence, probably the best Polish ensemble that specialises in historical performances, collaborating with Vox Luminis, one of the most outstanding vocal ensembles in the world, led by Lionel Meunier.

The staple of their programme will be the rarely performed oratorio by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart  Davidde penitente, a work first presented to the Viennese public in 1785. The texts in Italian written by Saverio Mattei are based mainly on the Biblical Book of Psalms and the First Book of Samuel. The concert will be complemented by Niccolò Jommelli’s Miserere in G minor, an exquisite example of stile antico, and the most famous of Mozart’s symphonies – Symphony No. 40, penned in the same key.
