Krzysztof Komeda was a Polish film music composer and jazz pianist. His musical style related to European jazz traditions. Thanks to his passion the Komeda Sextet was founded which became the first Polish group playing modern jazz, and its pioneering performances opened the way for jazz in Poland. Krzysztof Komeda was the poet who could find ways of individual expression of himself within his music, in Slavic lyricism, and in the traditions of Polish music. As a jazz musician, he exerted a crucial influence on creating an original style, often described as the Polish school of jazz, which subsequently influenced the Polish jazz scene's development after his death. The concert is the tribute to this extraordinary artist and the commemoration of Komeda's 50th death anniversary.
