Grzegorz Tarwid, who, together with Sebastian Zawadzki or Kuba Sokołowski is creating a new chapter of Polish piano music, is not overly sentimental and sugary. He knows that Nahorny, Makowicz and Jagodziński should be valued, but the context of his play, combined with Shostakovich’s or impressionist inspirations, suggests more the direction defined by Paul Bley, Andrew Hill and Matthew Shipp.
Grzegorz Tarwid – pianist and composer. He gathered experience from many masters of Polish pianism: first from the veteran of traditional jazz Wojciech Kamiński, then Andrzej Jagodziński and Michał Tokaja. He moved to Copenhagen to study and be inspired by the Danish free school: Jacob Anderskov and Carsten Dahl.
