Marcin Masecki. Born in Warsaw in 1982. Pianist, composer, conductor, member of the independent label Lado ABC, leader and participant of an astounding variety of projects. Winner of many awards Masecki is widely recognized as a leading figure in the polish independent music scene. Among others he leads a jazz sextet “Profesjonalizm”, he is the director of WOR – Warsaw Orchestra of Recreation – and he is member of international bands Paristetris and Pictorial Candi. His latest project POLONEZY is a 10-piece brass band which plays a set of original Polonaises.
His parallel passion is classical music which he most often presents in contexts foreign to it. He is an advocate of treating classical music as a legitimate and fully integrated element of the modern musical landscape, not just as an elitist museum piece (which unfortunately happens often).
For the last year Masecki has been working with the Amateur Fire Brigade Orchestra from the small town of Słupca, for which he wrote his Symphony nr. 1. He has also written for the Poznań Filharmonic Orchestr, Elbląg Chamber Orchestra, and the cello ensemble Cellonet.
