Her special interests are solo repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries for baroque lute, including research on Silesian lutenists, as well as miscellaneous chamber music with theorbo and baroque guitar as continuo instruments. Anna Wiktoria is also a literature lover, she has obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Comparative Literature at the Jagiellonian University.

Passionate about the baroque era, Jean-Daniel Forget is a self-taught lutenist. In order to play the forgotten lute works of the 17th and 18th centuries, he has copied and studied their manuscripts for almost 20 years. A long career as a computer scientist, having made him expert in programming, allowed him to utilize the normal logic of writing music, especially that which transcribes tablature for instruments with fretted strings.

Often, several manuscript sources exist for the same piece, and there is little reliable guidance for determining which version best represents the composer's intentions.

Although we cannot entirely dissipate historical uncertainty, we can compare texts and correct obvious errors, which sometimes occur even in autograph manuscripts. Sources have been meticulously examined - note by note, mark by mark.

When facing ambiguity inherent to the sources, wise editorial judgment must take the place of textual certainty. The most important observations and editorial decisions are elucidated in the prefaces, in the critical commentary, in footnotes, or marked as such in the musical text. Each verified musical text preserves the original fingerings and notation of ornamentation and, in the absence of original manuscript notations, also sets forth helpful suggestions by modern masters regarding useful fingerings and ornaments faithful to historical style, as a stimulus to further thought and a starting point for the student's approach to performance.
