Masecki is a pianist, composer and arranger. He was born in Warsaw in 1982 and is currently living in both Warsaw and Berlin. He spent his childhood in Colombia where his father uncovered the secrets of the piano for him. He was also a clarinettist. Later, in Poland, he attended the Fryderyk Chopin Music School in Warsaw and played in the Alchemist ensemble. He studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and after returning, became involved with the alternative musicians from Lado ABC. He has co-founded many formations which combine jazz improvisation with an avant-garde approach Paristetirs, Telewizor, Papierosy, TAQ and the Trio Masecki / Rogiński / Moretti.
Currently, he is considered one of the most creative and original musicians in Poland. He has an equally passionate affection for classical music as well as jazz and avant-garde, and has no aversion to pop. Not only is he the leader of the Profesjonalizm ensemble and the director of the first edition of the Warsaw Entertainment Orchestra, but also the leader of the Polonez project a wind instrument orchestra treating the tradition of polonaises in a perverse way. He feels equally at home performing Scott Joplin ragtime as playing Ludwig van Beethoven sonatas in muffling headphones. He records his own interpretations of Chopin and Bach works, and at the same time, with Jan Młynarski, he creates Jazz Band Młynarski-Masecki, reminiscent of the Polish orchestras of the interwar period. Marcin Masecki regularly performs, publishes, composes and engages in unconventional projects. The Marcin Masecki Jazz Trio, the artist’s latest group, includes Jerzy Rogiewicz on drums and Piotr Domagalski on double bass. They are all as thick as thieves. Jazz is in their blood. At the invitation of the Mieczysław Karłowicz Philharmonic in Szczecin, they will accompany along with other musical guests Marcin Masecki, who will appear in Szczecin with a series of concerts as the artist-in-residence of the Philharmonic during the 2019_2020 artistic season. You can expect them to be the best a marriage of classics with avant-garde and unique experiences at the confluence of genres.
