Stankiewicz Performs Kilar

On June 6, the Dolnośląski Festiwal Muzyczny [Lower Silesian Festival of Music] hosted a concert of the music of Wojciech Kilar performed by Kuba Stankiewicz, an outstanding Polish jazz pianist. Stankiewicz imbues every note he plays with such meticulous thoughtfulness and sensitivity, based not only on his keyboard skills and musicality but also on his dedication as a consummate scholar of the music he plays. For his Kilar project, Stankiewicz has translated Kilar’s film music through the poetry of jazz improvisation, but always with great respect and love towards the original.
