New Work by Piotr Grella-Mozejko

Throughout February, Piotr Grella-Możejko‘s new work, Nature morte avec noir (à la memoire de Piotr de Peslin Lachert) for piano and saxophone, was performed in Canada and the US. Written in memory of Piotr Lachert, one of the most intriguing minds in contemporary arts, and whose powerful, unconventional music has been consistently ignored in his native country of Poland, the piece is dedicated to the outstanding Canadian duo comprising the legendary saxophonist William H Street (currently Chair of the University of Alberta Music Department) and pianist Viktoria Reiswich-Dapp.
