Jazz and Händel? On September 14th, during MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM Festival 2019 Marcin Masecki will prove it is possible. We will hear and see Händel's Music for the Royal Fireworks and its jazz version performed by Marcin Masecki’s Jazz Trio will be accompanied by a spectacular fiesta of sounds and colours.
Being just a toddler, Marcin Masecki
looped American big bands on his record player. He made his first steps listening to ragtime, and he formed his first jazz trio as a teenager. When he studied in Boston, he started flirting with free jazz and improvisation that could hardly be classified. When he moved back to Poland he joined a record label - Lado ABC and he was active in independent music arena (Paristetris), as well as in classical music. Soon, the time came to start composing, conducting, and making film music. In the last years he gradually started approaching jazz again. First, founding a traditional bigband, which – more than once – gave a music accompaniment to dancings, then realising his childhood dream of performing ragtime. Making a classical trio was just a matter of time, and the time has come now. On September 14th, during MDF Festival
we will hear 'Music for the Royal Fireworks' by George Friedricha Händel for the first time in a totally new, jazz composition of Marcin Masecki
. He will perform with Jerzy Rogiewicz
playing drums and Piotr Domagalski
on double bass, together forming Marcin Masecki’s Jazz Trio
. They will be joined by Grzegorz Tarwid
– a pianist and a composer, known from Sundial project by Jachna-Tarwid-Karch trio and a Diomede duo.
During the first day of MDF Festival, Handel’s composition will be boosted with visual shows. Though it won’t be real fireworks, like the ones 270 years ago during the premiere concert, they will still be similarly spectacular. These visuals will literally blaze above the artists' and the audience's heads alongside outstanding music full of new sounds. All this coming to you on September 14th
on the first day of MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM Festival 2019
