Floripari (literally ‘they who carve flowers’) is the resident early music group at the Wawel Royal Castle in Kraków. It was formed in 1994 by graduates from the Academy of Music in Kraków and the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague.
A Day in the life of the Jagiellonian Court
The Royal Court of the Jagiellonian dynasty of Polish Kings was outstanding amongst all the courts of the 16th Century, and it attracted creative artists and musicians from all over Europe. Floripari recreate a typical day in the life of the Court, with renaissance songs and dances by Mikołaj Gomółka, Fabritio Caroso, Monteverdi, Gastoldi, Walentyn Bakfark and Wacław of Szamotuły.
