The Polish musician Tomasz Trzciński
connects as a pianist and composer fluently and with virtuosity the musical roots of his native Poland with classical music, jazz, Latin and the modern world of sound. He is active in many different ways in the field of music. He studied in his home town Szczecin, in Gdańsk and in Mainz where he was a participant in the EuropaChorAkademie for several years. He received considerable impulses for his artistic work as a student of the world-famous Polish pianist Prof. Lidia Grychtołówna, under the renowned conductor maestro Prof. Josharda Daus, under Manfred Reichert (“Ensemble 13”) in contemporary music and through the two jazz musicians Vitold Rek and Janusz Stefański. In his artistic work he combines the roots of his Polish homeland with the classical, modern and jazz.
Tomasz Trzciński has been particularly dedicated himself to the classic jazz improvisation and new music. In his busy concert schedule, the connection of the „The Köln Concert" by Keith Jarrett with works by J.S. Bach and Shostakovich has captivated audiences especially by the extraordinary concept and the high level: "One with the Piano", "Charming virtuoso", "Brilliant technician and Piano Artist" are a selection of the glowing reviews. In his repertoire he also presents new and exciting works of the young generation of Polish composers, including of Konstancja Kochaniec or Paweł Łukowiec from Wrocław (Breslau), which has dedicated to him several works. Currently Tomasz Trzciński presents the projects "Piano Explorations" and "Piano Conversations" with his deeply moving piano and enriched it by his own stylish moderation with which he elicits enthusiastic responses from the audience. Earlier this year he was on tour abroad: in February he played in packed halls in Szczecin and Wroclaw for an enthusiastic audience his own improvasations and arrangements of popular "classics" from J.S. Bach to Chick Corea. In March 2013 Tomasz Trzcinski published several concert and studio productions from the past eight years; in the same month the series New Sounds by the New York radio station WNYC, one of the leading North American station, acknowledged his piano music around Keith Jarrett's „The Köln Concert" as a groundbreaking evolution of contemporary piano art. Tomasz Trzciński is also intensively engaged as a conductor, chamber musician, composer, arranger and teacher.
Tomasz Trzciński is the founder and manager of the production company Musikproduktion Tomasz Trzciński - Qualityinmusic in which the client profits from his extensive artistic experience and his wide specialist knowledge among other things in studio and concert recordings, in CD mastering and in setting music. His last very succesful production was the piano transcriptions of the „African Songs” by Abdullah Ibrahim (vel. Dollar Brand) - by Schott Music International.
„The piano music by Tomasz Trzciński, that he performs at his concerts, produces and publishes on CDs and in online media, is extraordinarily exceptional and a lively, virtuous art of improvisation. His expres-sive, poetic and individually creative music flows directly from the heart and soul of a Polish artist who is fascinated by classics and jazz, by his Polish roots just as much as by European music and by the global culture of music.
One of Tomasz Trzciński's outstanding artistic features is his spontaneous ability to effectively link well-known genres of classical piano music to a wide range of demanding forms, tunes, rhythms and co-lours from other styles of music. Together with his outstanding piano technique and a deep understan-ding of his instrument, he offers his listeners unforgettable emotions and musical, spiritual and aesthetic experiences. And above all: he is thus developing this direction in art with a personal character and stylistic charm, and opening up new, still unknown horizons to piano music.
I am very impressed by his original concert art and his valuable achievements, artistic abilities and publications.”
