A concert of Adam Bałdych and his excellent quartet alongside the Jerzy Semkow Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra under the baton of Szymon Bywalec will take place on 4 December 2021 at 7.00 p.m. at the Witold Lutosławski Concert Studio of Polish Radio in Warsaw.
Adam Bałdych, violinist and composer, called "a child prodigy of violin", started his career at the age of 14. Soon he was hailed an innovator combining the achievements of classical music with contemporary improvised violin. In his recent pieces, composed for renowned orchestras, there are clearer references to classical music.
In 2019, on commission from AUKSO orchestra, he composed Early Birds Symphony for the auksodrone festival. Teodor, on the other hand, was composed for his son, born in the summer of 2020. Adam Bałdych ran the project with his wife – vocalist Kari Sál, and with Krzysztof Dys, Michał Barański and Dawid Fortuna, who are members of his ensemble, Adam Bałdych Quartet. The artist decided to go back to the years of his childhood and draw inspirations from the exceptional atmosphere of the 1980s. It was not only the time of the explosion of synthetic sounds and provocative music projects, but also the golden era of Polish Jazz represented by such eminent musicians as Tomasz Stańko, Michał Urbaniak or Zbigniew Namysłowski. The 80s, marking the decline of the Polish People’s Republic, abounded in rebellious compositions and avant-garde peregrinations, both in jazz and classical music.
