Piano concerto g-moll by Andrzej Jagodziński is unquestionably an artistic masterpiece enriching the phonographic market.
Its originality starts with the instrumental jazz trio of Andrzej Jagodziński on piano, Adam Cegielski on double bass and Czesław „Mały” Bartkowski on drums, combined with a symphonic orchestra.
In this concerto – Jagodziński, who is a well established jazz musician, emerges also as an outstanding romantic composer.
He is searching for novel stylistic connections and in a surprising way joins two seemingly distant styles of jazz and classical music.
Experiences gained in his previous musical endeavors, where he has offered jazz interpretation of the classical works of masters such as Chopin or Beethoven, have most likely inspired him to search for his very own style of musical expression. Themes full of melodic inventiveness in a natural way inspire luscious harmonic improvisations. Virtuosity combined with passion, imagination and musical sensitivity penetrates with lyricism.
Creates a very unique mood and a new genre – romantic jazz. Who else than Andrzej would know how to be so multidimensional…
