Sinfonia Varsovia Brass
Sinfonia Varsovia Brass is a thirteen-person brass ensemble with a symphonic lineage. Its first performance at Defilad Square in Warsaw during the Sinfonia Varsovia to Its City Festival has aroused tremendous enthusiasm of the audience. The ensemble is made up of: Jan Harasimowicz (trumpet), Jakub Waszczeniuk (trumpet), Ostap Popovych (trumpet), Andrzej Tomczok (trumpet), Marek Żwirdowski (trombone), Tomasz Światczyński (trombone), Tomasz Hajda (trombone), Mariusz Opaliński (trombone), Henryk Kowalewicz (French horn), Krzysztof Mucha (tuba), Piotr Kostrzewa (drums), Sebastian Frankiewicz (drums), and Tomasz Bielecki (drums).
Several months after that wildly successful concert, the ensemble recorded an energetic album compiling classical music, jazz and Latin-American music. These are also works which take us back to the roots of the greatest American big bands, best known to listeners through film soundtracks – such as music from “Rocky” or “The Children of Sanchez”.
