Vitold Rek (Poland)

 

One of the most outstanding contemporary jazz double bass players, at ROZSTAJE will perform a concert: „Bassfiddle alla polacca”, which is an extremely interesting combination and processing of folk motifs (inspiration with Eastern European traditional music) and jazz with elements of classical music. Vitold Rek is a graduate of the Academy of Music in Krakow, currently a lecturer in double bass at the University of Gutenberg in Mainz and at the Collage of Music in Frankfurt am Main.

"Vitold Rek plays music that cannot be categorized, music beyond stylistic divisions. It is not jazz, it is not folk, it is not a classical concert ... Simply put - it plays Polish music on double bass. " - Robert Buczek, "Jazz Forum"

 

Concert as part of the festival: July 21, 2002, 6:00 PM, Stage by the Town Hall, Teatr Ludowy
