Krzysztof Herdzin


Pianist, arranger, conductor and commercially established composer. His oeuvre includes nearly 200 albums with popular, film, and classical music. He simultaneously pursues the paths of classical and jazz music, freely juggling with conventions and employing grotesque and irony. Herdzin’s brilliant, erudite compositions are a testament to his ability to transfer practices typical of jazz onto contemporary music, and to his great consciousness in adapting the styles of the past masters.
