Info for Bajgelman. Get To Tango



The programme of the album "Bajgelman. Get to Tango" intersperses pieces from the interwar period with music from the Łódź Ghetto. The story of Dawid Bajgelman’s life and work is told in the characteristic style and sound of Bester Quartet, made up of the leader’s (Jarek Bester’s) accordion, Dawid Lubowicz’s violin, Maciej Adamczak’s bass, and Ryszard Pałka’s percussion, and complemented by contributions from such eminent guest musicians as Krzysztof Lenczowski (cello), Michał Bylica (trumpet), and, perhaps most importantly, of leading Polishjazz singers: Grażyna Auguścik, Dorota Miśkiewicz, and Jorgos Skolias.

Bester Quartet
is a phenomenon on the global music market. The group is made up of four superior instrumentalists, classically and jazzally trained musicians. The quartet’s trademark is performance of the music of a vast stylistic range that assimilates some selected elements borrowed from classical, jazz and vanguard music, including the best of achievements of the contemporary chamber music where improvisation constitutes a foundation to build some unique instrumental forms on.

The ensemble is a new edition of the legendary The Cracow Klezmer Band that was formed back in 1997 in Krakow, Poland as an initiative of Jaroslaw Bester – composer and accordionist. As a result of development of an original and artistically daring repertoire, based chiefly on own compositions or arrangements designed specifically for the instrumental setting, the quartet continues to win recognition among music critics and audience worldwide.

Bester Quartet has made numberless TV and radio recordings and has cooperated with many exceptional jazz, klezmer and vanguard musicians, including John Zorn, Tomasz Stanko, Grazyna Auguscik, John McLean, Don Byron, Marek Mos ( Aukso), Dorota Miskiewicz, Frank London, Jorgos Skolias, Aaron Alexander, Ireneusz Socha , Tomasz Zietek and others. The quartet has performed in many prestigious venues around the world, including Poland, USA, UK, Taiwan, Russia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Finland, Serbia, Italy, Estonia, Spain, France, Ukraine, Belorus, Moldavia, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Israel, Croatia, Brasil, Turkey, Germany and Canada.
