“Messe Pour les Paroisses” by François Couperin performed by the Triplum ensemble and Michał Białko as part of the Music in Old Kraków festival.
Triplum is a male vocal quartet fascinated with early music and monuments of musical literature – especially Polish. The ambition of the musicians is to reach to the forgotten texts of works from the Middle Ages to Baroque, to “uncover” the old music. The ensemble consists of graduates of the Academy of Music in Kraków and has been active since 1998. The quartet gives concerts with a’cappella programme in Poland and abroad, at chamber music festivals.
Since the beginning of its activity, the Male Vocal Quartet Triplum has sung over 100 concerts at various festivals, including: Music in Old Kraków, Organ and Chamber Music Festival in Leżajsk, Organ Music Days in Kraków, Musica da Chiesa Chamber Music Festival, Gaude Mater Polonia Wincenty z Kielczy in Memoriam Festival, Fide et Amore Festival, Summer Music Festival in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, Kromer Biecz Festival. The ensemble has performed in, among others: National Museum in Copenhagen, Polish Library in Paris, Roskilde Cathedral (Denmark), Odensee Basilica (Denmark), Cracow Philharmonic, Cracow Chamber Opera.
The ensemble collaborates with well-known musicians, especially with organists: Prof. Andrzej Białko, Prof. Józef Serafin, Eva Maria Jensen, Marek Stefański, Michał Białko, Łukasz Kmiecik and the Oltre Montano ensemble. Triplum’s repertoire includes works from the Middle Ages to early Baroque. The ensemble also performs later repertoire and participates in the Krakow Philharmonic’s educational activities.
