Four seasons. Sacrum & Profanum

Each year in Polish tradition is traced by the recurrent rhytm of holidays, ceremonies and rituals. They are related to the important events that determine the spiritual evolution of every Christian who takes an active part in keeping vigilance during Advent, who shares the joy of Christmas, who experiances the sadness of Lent and the excultation of Easter. However the Christian holidays interwine with the almost-forgotten pagan customs, superstitions and beliefs. This kind of folk music is presenting by CD.

Silk Road Suite

The compositions on CD Silk Road Suite sum-up the twenty years of a European musician exploring the continent of Asia. This is an attempt to comprehend the way of perceiving the beauty in music other than the European way, its different rhythms, color and meaning. Every piece is based on original melodic theme deriving from India, China, Japan, Thrace, Arabia or Poland. The use of musical instruments typical for given culture strengthens the credibility of a composition. At the same time through almost all pieces there intertwine the European instruments, this providing a proof of  perfect harmony of different sonic shades belonging to distant cultures. This programme is also a chronicle of reconstruction of two lost old Polish bowed instruments ( suka and fiddle). Their reconstruction has been possible due to the experiences with the bow-playing technique that are long forgotten in Poland but still in use in Asia. Silk Road Suite becomes a fascinating encounter of the West and the East it is a journey not only in space but also in time.  To say-I am- we have to have some points of reference. For me such a point are the musical culture of Asia, that allow me to say –You are- and to find anew my own identity. To see irreplaceable difference and yet to find common elements that connect the mutually distant traditions.
