The pianist and ACT artists Vladyslav Sendecki has received the prestigious Hamburg Jazz Award 2011 (“Hamburger Jazzpreis”). The jury, consisting of musicians, journalists and other important personalities of the cultural sector stated: „Vladyslav Sendecki impresses with the depth of his musical performance, his versatility and sovereignty. He has godlike playing skills and eared international recognition as an outstanding pianist. For the city of Hamburg, Vladyslav Sendecki showed a great deal of dedication in initiating musical projects and exchange programmes between young Polish and Hamburg based jazz musicians making him an important role model.” Vladyslav Sendecki lives in Hamburg since 1995.

This year’s edition of the Hamburg Jazz Award will be officially handed over to Vladyslav Sendecki in May 2011.
