Artur Dutkiewicz - Mazurki (Pianoart, 2012)

Artur Dutkiewicz - piano

Mazurki (Pianoart, 2012)








These are NOT interpretations of Mazurkas by Fryderyk Chopin but Artur Dutkiewicz own compositions.   [...] "I like rhythm at three-quarters. I feel well when playing and improvising in it. These mazurkas of mine simply has multuplied themselves over years" - says Dutkiewicz. Nineteen of them finally made their way to the disc. But during concerts new ones constantly come. They are ephemeral as if they fall down from the sky as for example "Mazurek z nieba" (Mazurka from the sky). [...] There are also mazurkas dedicated to Dutkiewicz homeland "Pińczowski" and "Kielecki" but also inspired by African rhythms or dedicated to John Coltrane. [...] Mazurkas are generally short forms but Dutkiewicz managed to show in them the talent of  brilliant composer and  accomplished virtuoso. [...]
