About this Event

Marcin Masecki is a winner of many awards, he performs extensively on all keyboard instruments, composes for film and theatre, produces festivals, records and curates musical events. He was music arranger, composer and consultant in Paweł Pawlikowski‘s Cold War (Best Director at Cannes Film Festival 2018).

His projects span a wide range of styles and his virtuosic fusion of different genres as well as the blurring of the line between high art and entertainment have become his hallmarks.

Marcin Masecki’s Jazz Trio is a relatively new ensemble. Even though Masecki is one of Poland’s most established and versatile musicians he hasn’t touched the classic trio format since his high school days. One could say that throughout his career he has directed his attention at everything BUT the piano trio: big bands, brass orchestras, classical symphony orchestras, choirs, alternative pop bands, electric quintets, acoustic duets, sextets and nonets, composing for film and theatre, giving masterclasses, classical chamber musicking, and an vast body of solo work.

Last year during a morning jog Masecki became intensely inspired by the pulse, stride, breath, heart throbbing and the way the mind wanders during the physical activity. The music he heard while running became the basis for the long awaited piano trio. One can imagine the trans-like qualities of the programme, but it isn’t only the rhythm that fascinated Masecki. As is well known, something liberating happens in the mind when we do sports. This freedom of thought combined with the constant radio that every musician has in his head produced a fresh new music for an old and traditional format.

Line up:

Masecki is joined by his regular musical partners Jerzy Rogiewicz on drums and Piotr Domagalski on double bass.

Door open at 6.30 pm, main act starts at 8 pm

This concert is part of Polish Jazz London Series, Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture.
