Marek Pasieczny, “Lutosławski: In Memoriam”
Marek Pasieczny is a fantastic, young Polish composer who has written numerous compositions, mostly for guitar (including solo and chamber works and concerti). Marek is also a talented guitarist himself and plays many of his own compositions in a number of videos circulated on his YouTube channel.
The most recent composition and video (featuring Michal Stanikowski on second guitar) is a three-movement work in memoriam of Polish composer and conductor Witold Lutosławski in honor of the maestro’s one-hundredth birthday. This is incredibly creative writing and Marek and Michal play the piece together beautifully with all kinds of color and rhythmic surprises.
