The theme of the next concert of the Polish Cello Quartet will be the legend of the Polish cabaret scene, Jerzy Wasowski. This gentleman is known to the wider audience above all from the Cabaret of Elderly Gentlemen – the perfect duo he created with Jeremi Przybora.

Wasowski was undoubtedly an artist of many talents – he was a successful journalist, radio host, composer and satirist. It is hard to believe that if not for a few events in his life, he could have been an engineer (he graduated from the Warsaw Polytechnic at the electronics department). After graduation, however, he went to the Polish Radio, ad it was a sudden turn on his professional path. In the radio station he met his long-time collaborator, Jeremi Przybora, with whom he initially founded the radio theatre ‘Eterek’. In music, Wasowski was in his element composing songs. He created timeless hits belonging to the core repertoire of the Cabaret of Elderly Gentlemen, such as Happy Life, Cheap Bastards or Kaziu, Fall in Love. Composing work quickly became one of the most important activities of Wasowski. As he recalled, it was meant to be ‘the most pleasant way to maintain a family’. At the same time, he devoted himself to a rather original hobby: mathematics (group theory) and musical acoustics.

During the evening, Wasowski's songs written to the excellent texts of Jeremi Przybora will sound in a unique arrangement. Two guest artists will perform with the challenge-oriented Polish Cello Quartet. The cello quartet invited Izabela Połońska – a vocalist feeling at home in a variety of musical styles (from classical to jazz). Song occupies an important place in her activities, which results from her collaboration with pianist and composer Piotr Hertl. Połońska is also an artist of the Logos Theatre in Łódź. Leszek Kołodziejski is one of the most characteristic Polish accordionists of the young generation. He is an artist active in various fields - as a soloist, chamber musician, session musician, composer and arranger cooperating with many theatres in Lódź. At the same time, he works as a lecturer at the G. and K. Bacewicz Academy of Music in Łódź, his Alma Mater.
