The concert is a part of  Polish Jazz London Series.

“One of the most incredible bands if not the most incredible group I have ever played with” – Randy Brecker

Bukoliki / Bucolics arranged by Piotr Orzechowski and High Definition Quartet is a jazz coverage of 5 piano miniatures by Witold Lutosławski, inspired by the folk songs originating in regions inhabited by Kurpie.


High Definition Quartet’s originality and musical freshness have created an impact in Poland and abroad. They’ve won a number of awards including First Prize at Jazz Hoeilaart 2011.

“Through the translation and development of Bucolics into a composition for a jazz quartet, the listeners received a rhythmically complex, dazzling and exuberant music composition which is outstanding for its shifts of mood and temperature.”
(Henning Bolte / All About Jazz)
