To mark the centennial anniversary of diplomatic relations between Poland and Greece, Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, in collaboration with the Embassy of Poland in Greece, presents a concert by the extraordinary Polish jazz pianist, composer and producer, Leszek Możdżer.
Having studied classical piano since age 5, at 18 Możdżer became interested in jazz music. He went on to release more than 100 albums, many of which have gone platinum, and has garnered every single music prize in Poland. He has worked with the world-renowned Polish composers Zbigniew Preisner and Jan A. P. Kaczmarek, and has recorded with some of the greatest artists in the world. Since 2011, he has been the artistic director of Enter Music Festival at Poznań.
Możdżer is able to demonstrate extreme freedom in his improvisations, creating original soundscapes of extraordinary sonorities and evoking discreet, often mystical moods. His variations and improvisations on Chopin themes have placed him amongst the leading virtuosos in the European jazz scene.
Moreover, as part of the anniversary celebration, the Lighthouse will also host on 16/03 the exhibition Polish Posters Inspired by Greece, organized in collaboration with the Poster Museum of Poland.
