Under its artistic director, and in collaboration with the French cellist, the Polish period-instrument orchestra presents a programme of music by composers born in a specific year, both hitherto neglected but recently the subjects of research and publication. Leonardo Leo hailed from Apulia but spent his career largely in Naples, mainly as a prolific composer of opera and oratorio. He died in 1744. Johan Helmich Roman was born in Stockholm and spent much of his life serving the Swedish court: he died in 1758.
