You don’t want to miss this!
As part of its ongoing Sto Lat Razem campaign to commemorate Poland’s rebirth and U.S. support a century ago, the U.S. Embassy and the American Center Warsaw, in cooperation with the National Museum, invite you to a special event featuring works of Ignacy Jan Paderewski in jazz arrangements. The talented Paweł Kaczmarczyk Trio, comprised of double bass player Michał Barański, drummer Tomasz Torres, and pianist and composer Paweł Kaczmarczyk – who will play on Paderweski’s historic Erard piano from 1929 – will perform at the National Museum in Warsaw at 8:00 pm on Sunday, March 11. Paweł Kaczmarczyk has translated the works of Ignacy Jan Paderewski into his own original musical language – a spectacular fusion of classical, jazz and Polish folk music. The National Museum’s captivating “Paderewski” exhibition that runs from February 17 – May 20 was the inspiration for the concert. The exhibition, which Ignacy Jan Paderewski himself donated to the National Museum, shows not only the achievements of an outstanding virtuoso pianist and statesman, but also the lesser-known face of a devoted man, a friend of artists, and an aficionado of Asian art. This world premier event will be followed later in 2018 when the Chicago-based Paderewski Symphony Orchestra records the Paweł Kaczmarczyk Trio’s compositions.
* Free invitations to this can’t-miss concert are available at the National Museum in Warsaw’s information desk.
