It is the year 1713. After two years of study at Utrecht University, the young prince Johann Ernst returns to Weimar. He brings some unusual souvenirs along: the score of L'estro armonico, a collection of violin concertos recently created by Antonio Vivaldi, as well as other compositions created by Italian artists. At the time, it was fashionable in Amsterdam to reduce the plethora of instruments in a concert to a solo piece accompanied by an orchestra. The prince decides to commission such transcriptions from his organist. And that's how twenty-eight-year-old Johann Sebastian Bach, still learning composition by rewriting the works of other artists, becomes acquainted with Italian concertos.

The renowned Polish flautist Krzysztof Kaczka was born in Torun. He completed his studies at the Mozarteum Salzburg, at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna and at the University of Music and Theatre in Munich. He regularly undertakes extensive tours on all continents. Jaroslaw Nadrzycki is a winner of numerous major international competitions. He is performing in many European countries, in North and South America as well as in South Korea.
