This vocal-instrumental ensemble was established by Andrzej Szadejko, its conductor ever since, in 2008. The ensemble specialises in performing early Gdańsk music in accordance with the instrumentarium conventions of the Baroque and Classical periods. The musicians forming the ensemble are Polish and foreign graduates of the renown European centres focused on early musical practice (Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, Royal Music Academies in London and the Hague). The instrumentalists play the authentic instruments or their copies. Under the name "Goldberg Vocal Ensemble", the vocalists of the group engage in a'capella projects. Their output comprises concerts and prize-winning recordings.
Goldberg Baroque Ensemble is currently carrying out a recording project called The Musical Heritage of the City of Gdańsk, presenting the music surviving in script in the collection of the Gdańsk Library of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The collection includes thousands of mostly unknown compositions by Gdańsk kapellmeisters and musicians, such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Philip Telemann, or Johann Jacob Froberger.
