3. POLISH MUSIC "From Chopin to Maksymiuk”

In the program :Chopin, Paderewski, Bacewicz, Lutosławski, Górecki, Penderecki, Kilar, Maksymiuk.

The program of the concert is a result of lots of years’ search of music pieces by Polish composers, which, apart from outstanding artistic value, fulfil an important condition – they sound great in our accordion trio. A part of the pieces are a common choice, some other are an effect of my own search and some of the transcriptions were suggested by the composers themselves like “Orawa”pointed by Wojciech Kilar or “Chaccone” and “Three Pieces in the Old Style” pointed by Krzysztof Penderecki. A particular capstone of the project is Jerzy Maksymiuk’s “When Dreams Burn” from 2021, which was dedicated and given to MOTION TRIO. I am convinced that the project that has been created has amazing sound, aesthetic
and emotional features, the focal point of which is Polish music and a modern, acoustic accordion.

8. SROKA IN MOTION

Motion Trio Concert

The project was developed together with Jacek Sroka and Jarosław Migoń and launched at Motion Trio’s birthday concert at the Krakow Opera in 2014.
The video projections, whose composition, colour and theme emphasise the emotions generated by the band during concerts, have been made on the basis of Jacek Sroka’s paintings. Each piece performed by Motion Trio is matched with mobile visualisations of selected paintings. The visual part of this performance was prepared by Jarosław Migoń. The camera, moving from the specific to the general, reveals minute details of each picture and shows them in a new perspective. Thanks to the motion inside the frame, the elements in the picture acquire a spatial dimension and create consecutive layers of its complex composition. This leaves the viewer - listener with unique impressions. The paintings blend with music to create one performance on stage and, by amplifying impressions, produce an unforgettable audiovisual experience.

Sroka in Motion was presented, among others, in Wrocław, Minsk, Świnoujście, Novosibirsk and the Krzysztof Penderecki European Centre for Music in Lutosławice.
