Reflections with Stars

Autumn is a time for contemplation – and in the capital of Małopolska it’s also a great time for jazz. The organisers of the Kraków All Souls “Zaduszki” Jazz Festival, one of the longest-running such events in the world, bring together the solemnity of the occasion with the joy of music. The 68th edition is held under the banner “When Jazz Is Everything…” Events start at the Małopolska Garden of Arts with a performance by the pianist Bartłomiej Leśniak with his trio and the Funk de Nite ensemble, celebrating their 30th anniversary with special guests. Evening concerts at the Juliusz Słowacki Theatre resound with music performed by stars of Poland’s stages: Marcin Wyrostek is joined by Aga Zaryan and Magda Steczkowska for the programme ETHNO Coloriage, Piotrek Wojtasik’s quintet performs with Anna Maria Jopek, while Michał Urbaniak and Sinfonietta Cracovia present their UrbSymphony. The festival closes with a performance by Michał Jurkiewicz at the St Mary’s Church. (Bartosz Suchecki, Kraków Culture)
