Peszat’s chamber works

I would like to share two really good works by Piotr Peszat for the chamber ensemble composed in 2018.

Untitled Folder, here performed with Spółdzielnia Muzyczna Contemporary Ensemble (Cracow), my beloved home ensemble.

Grocery Store Music #5, here performed with Hashtag Ensemble (Warsaw), fantastic group that has invited me to work together few times this year.


Music Olomouc 2018


I hereby invite to my solo recital at MusicOlomouc, contemporary music festival in Olomouc, Czech Republic.
There, I will perform an over 70 minutes program which will consist of quite physical works, mostly performed in Czech Republic for the first time. And with special focus on Piotr Peszat’s Jenny’ Soul. Or Dirk’s?, which was created back in 2016 in our common, work-in-progress, composition process.
One of the premieres will be a World Premiere of a crazy noise work by Cory Bracken (NY, USA), composed for my, and comissioned by the festival. A work for an insane set of stuff consisting of a door spring mounted on a snare drum, various sliders and thimbers, combs, bows, varied vibrators, milk frotters, chains and contact mics.
Moreover, it will be my own first festival performance of the solo percussion piece by Michel van der Aa which, next to Cory’s work, is a new addition to my repertoir.
I hope that those of you who will attend the festival, will enjoy my personal interpretations of Aperghis, Billone and Sarhan as well.
Hope to meet you there!
