BIONDI
Violinist and conductor, founder of the Europa Galante ensemble. Born in Palermo, he was already performing Bach’s violin concertos at the Wiener Musikverein at the age of 16. He then started to cooperate as concertmaster with the most famous ensembles playing period instruments such as Cappella Real, Musica Antiqua Wien, Il Seminario Musicale, La Chapelle Royale, Les Musiciens du Louvre (since its beginning). In 1990, he founded his own orchestra, Europa Galante, with which he performs on the most prestigious of world stages. The albums that they recorded together won numerous awards and became reference recordings. Their extensive concert activity and huge phonographic success (almost one million discs sold) made them the best known Italian performers of early music as well as the winners of the most awards.
 EUROPA GALANTE
EUROPA GALANTE
EUROPA GALANTE
The ensemble was founded in 1990 by the violinist Fabio Biondi who wanted to create an Italian orchestra of period instruments performing works of the great baroque and classical repertoire. It is famous for its virtuosity and energetic, almost aggressive style of performance which, however, perfectly combines with Italian and, at the same time baroque, tunefulness. Its interpretations boast not only rhythmic vigour, but also plasticity and a particular sensitivity to the richness of timbres. Since its first recordings, which are still the highest reference point, the ensemble has remained the indisputable authority on performing Italian music of the 17th and 18th centuries. It appears in the most prestigious concert halls, not only playing well-known masterpieces, but also reviving forgotten works.

He studied harpsichord at the Paris Schola Cantorum with Huguette Dreyfus and then at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague with Bob van Asperen. In 1991, he founded his own ensemble, Les Talens Lyriques, which allowed him to perform the whole classical and baroque repertoire. Though initially regarded as an eminent harpsichordist with a series of highly rated albums, he quickly also established his position as a conductor, leading its ensemble in the most prestigious concert halls in the world. His editions of the complete harpsichord works of Couperin, Rameau, d’Anglebert and Forqueray, as well as his recordings of Bach, are considered as reference performances. As a guest conductor, he performs at Barcelona’s Liceu, Naples’ San Carlo, Milan’s La Scala, Opéra Royal de Wallonie or with the Spanish National Orchestra, etc. At the same time, he is an active researcher and editor.

St. John’s Centre
St. John’s Centre
The first written mention of a small chapel dedicated to St. John comes from 1358. The church’s style is typical for late-Gothic architecture of the 14th and 15th centuries, with its heavy, buttressed structure, triple nave interior and flat-ended presbytery. The church took on its current form in the second half of the 15th century. In 1543, the church tower was destroyed by fire to be rebuilt 24 years later. In March 1945, the church burned down but its overall structure survived. After the war, the gutted building was roofed and its valuable vaults secured, but the church was designated a lapidarium. The Gdansk Diocese has been using it for services on Sundays and holidays since the 1990s. In 1995, the church was transferred to the management of the Baltic Sea Culture Centre (BSCC), which is reconstructing it with a view to converting it into a professional centre of culture.
St. Catharine’s Church
St. Catharine’s Church
The Old Town’s oldest parish church. Founded by the Gdańsk Pomeranian Dukes it was dedicated to St. Catharine in 1236. The church is a hall-type edifice with pitched roof, a broad presbytery whose current three-nave structure was formed during a 15th century expansion, and a dominant tower. For nearly 400 years, it belonged to Protestants and was only transferred to the care of the Carmelite Order after the Second World War. In 2011, the world’s first pulsar clock was installed on the tower to celebrate the 400th birthday of Johann Hevelius, one of the city’s all-time greatest citizens. This is also where one finds the astronomer’s tombstone of 1659 and a piece of his coffin plaque with monogram J.H. and date of death 28 January 1687. In the 18th century, the church received its first carillon, subsequently modified and extended several times. The instrument survived a fire in 1905 and Nazi confiscation in 1942. Currently, the carillon consists of 50 bells spanning together four octaves making it Central Europe’s largest concert carillon.
Main Town Hall
Main Town Hall
The Great Wety Hall (the White Hall) is located in the eastern wing of the first and most elegant storey of the building. When the Polish kings visited Gdansk, the hall served as a throne room and a place where the royal burgrave received oaths and issued court judgments. The Great Wety Hall hosted commemorations of Polish citizenship and, until the middle of the 16th century, was the venue of City Council meetings. Starting from 1526, the Hall was used for sittings of the common folk chamber (the Third Ordynek) and the Wety Court. Between 1817 and 1921, the Great Wety Hall was mostly referred to as the City Council Hall (Stadtverordnetensaal) as it hosted the meetings of City Representatives. In 1840-1841, its interiors were rebuilt in a neo-gothic style based on the summer refectory from the Grand Master’s Palace in Malbork Castle. In 1909, a 16th century Renaissance portal, that was originally located in the merchant’s house at Chlebnicka 11, was placed over the entry to the Main Hallway. In 1945, the destroyed hall was reconstructed following the design Stanisław Bobiński and brought back to its pre-1941 condition.
Old Market Town Hall
Old Market Town Hall
Created by Anthonis van Obberghen, the Old Market Town Hall was erected in late 16th century in the Dutch Mannerist style. Built for the Old Town authorities, the building was a centre of the political, economic, scientific and social life of this part of Gdansk for many centuries. It was there that city debates were held, that the Grand Hall hosted official ceremonies, while balls and parties were organised there in the evenings. A famous Gdansk-based scholar and astronomer Johannes Hevelius resided in the Old Market Town Hall as an assessor and the first councillor, storing his home-made beer in the town hall cellars. With its landmark silhouette, the town hall is a major urban highlight of the Old Town. Regardless of many reconstructions, the town hall envelope has remained unchanged until now. Multiple modifications of its interior have enriched the building with exceptional objects. The first floor features an elegant hallway and an imposing Grand Hall, now known as the Bourgeoisie Hall, with an original wooden ceiling.
Uphagen’s House
Uphagen’s House
The merchant’s house, located at 12 Długa Street, was purchased in 1775 by a Gdansk councillor Jan (Johann) Uphagen. It took 10 years to finish the house and make changes to adapt it to the needs of a new and wealthy owner. Thanks to the first owner’s testament, which forbade his heirs to modify the interior, Uphagen’s House preserved its original character. In 1911, it was converted into a museum. In 1944, a number of its pieces of furniture were removed, thus saving them from destruction in March 1945. In 1993-1998, the 19th century character was restored in the rebuilt merchant’s house, which was turned into a Museum of Bourgeois Interiors. Today Uphagen’s House is one of a handful of 18th century merchant houses open to visitors in Europe. As you make your tour around the house, you experience a typical merchant’s house of the 18th century bourgeoisie, full of historic furniture and everyday objects.
