On 9 November 2019 at 7 p.m. at the Krzysztof Penderecki European Centre for Music in Lusławice, one of the best European big bands – NDR Bigband – will perform in the company of the Atom String Quartet, soprano Olga Pasiecznik and pianist Vladislav Sendecki.
Norddeutscher Rundfunk Big Band – the orchestra of the German public radio in Hamburg, is one of the best European jazz big bands. They have performed with such artists as Dexter Gordon, Chet Baker, George Coleman, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Tomasz Stańko, Lionel Hampton, Richard Galliano. The first jazz concert of the orchestra took place in May 1974 in Hamburg's "Fabrik" and since then the band has built its international reputation. NDR Big Band takes part in many special artistic projects that often go beyond the scope of jazz music. The orchestra has been successfully reaching for compositions of Polish jazzmen for several years. Pianist and composer Vladislav Sendecki, a graduate of the Music Academy in Krakow, has been the arranger and soloist of the famous NDR Big Band since 1996. The concert will also feature the Atom String Quartet – one of the best jazz quartets in Poland and soprano Olga Pasiecznik, a soloist of the Polish Royal Opera.
The artists will perform Le Jardin Qublié by Vladyslav Sendecki, My Polish Heart by Wolfgang Kerschek and About Penderecki by Geir Lysne – variations on the works by Krzysztof Penderecki. The concert will be a repetition of the well-received world premiere of the project, which the artists performed on 27 November 2018 at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.
