Jacaszek is a talented polish electroacoustic musician and producer. He is the latest in a tradition of Eastern Europeans exploring the reaches of sentimentality in classical music. Clearly influenced by the liturgical compositions of Henryk Gorecki or John Tavener, with a healthy pinch of Angelo Badalamenti’s mood-setting soundscapes, Jacaszek manages to find his own niche somewhere between Murcof and Francois Tetaz’s indispensible score for ‘Wolf Creek’ – somewhere dark and mysterious but ultimately beautifully rewarding and moving.
We are very excited to announce that Jacaszek will perform with Ingacy Wiśniewski (harpsichord) and Andrzej Wojciechowski (clarinet) for our opening gala at the Rich Mix on Thursday 22nd September.
This concert is supported by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the Polska Music grant programme and by the Polish Cultural Institute in London.
