Vladyslav Sendecki is one of the most powerful and extremely creative solo pianists of our time. "Music has always meant freedom to me. Freedom and the exchange of thoughts and emotions – with the audience, other musicians, and between the instrument and myself."

In 1981, Sendecki yielded to his musical passion and immigrated, first to Switzerland and then to Germany. It was not only a brave step into freedom, but also an entrance into the jazz big time. Since then he has played alongside jazz greats like Joe Henderson, Lenny White, Marcus Miller, Randy and Michael Brecker, Jaco Pastorius, Billy Cobham, Till Brönner and Klaus Doldinger, to name but a few. He has also been a permanent ensemble member of the renowned NDR Big Band since 1996.

But despite his international success, and his attachment to his chosen homeland of Germany, Vladyslav Sendecki can't and won't deny his roots – namely his love for Poland, and his love of classical music. He breaks through the artificial barriers between classical music and jazz like no other contemporary pianist and composer! His passion, to live and experience music as a globally unifying social and cultural asset that transcends all borders, is something that he actively pursues, even in his role as the artistic director of the star Jazz Festival.

The Atom String Quartet is arguably one of the most fascinating string quartets in the world, and at the same time, it is one of Poland's best jazz bands. Using the instruments of a chamber music ensemble (Dawid Lubowicz and Mateusz Smoczyński: violins, Michał Zaborski: viola, Krzysztof Lenczowski: cello), and with a firm anchoring in the classical music tradition, the Atom String Quartet breaks new ground in terms of sounds and structure. Their music is much more than a bridge between jazz and classical music. Polish folk music, world-music ideas from many other cultures, as well as compositions from contemporary music, are also sources of inspiration for their unmistakable new string sound.
