Jazztopad Festival
This event has passed

Explore the newest music in today’s jazz scene at the renowned Polish jazz festival, Jazztopad Festival. Tonight’s performance will feature an original work by Amir ElSaffar, an Atrium alum and classically trained trumpet player who developed his artistic language by combining jazz with the aesthetics derived from traditional music of the Middle East. ElSaffar’s new piece “Ahwaal”—or "states of consciousness," an important concept in Sufism—fuses the microtonal resonances of Iraqi maqam with a subtle nod to Beethoven’s late quartets. For this special engagement, ElSaffar is joined by Polish artists Ksawery Wójciński, Wacław Zimpel, and the Lutosławski Quartet. The night will open with a solo electronic set by multi-award winner Wacław Zimpel.

Presented in collaboration with Jazztopad Festival
