Adam Baldych

“…Baldych gives his violin a voice and emotional power that have been too rarely heard in recent decades and offers a fresh take on the instrument for the contemporary scene” - Allaboutjazz.com (USA)

ADAM BAŁDYCH Violinist and composer. Born 18 May 1986. Living in Warsaw / Poland.

First called A CHILD PRODIGY evolved to being named INNOVATOR OF JAZZ VIOLIN (Fono Forum/DE) Bałdych is the author of 4 albums released by the prestigious ACT MUSIC, winning a number of prizes including ECHO JAZZ 2013 (Best Instrumentalist /International) – the most important German music award bestowed on artists by the German music industry, Polish Grammy FRYDERYK 4 times nomination and GOLD CROSS OF MERIT by President of Poland and MEDAL OF MERIT for his cultural achievements and successes.

Adam consistently creates his musical world, inviting acclaimed artists for cooperation, like: Lars Danielsson, Helge Lien, Yaron Herman, Nils Landgren, Iiro Rantala, Marius Neset, Aaron Parks, Jacob Karlzon, Joachim Kuhn, Billy Cobham. Considered one of the most inventive violinist today, who „must be commended for developing a completely new vocabulary for the jazz violin” (The Guardian/UK) and „has, without doubt, the greatest technique of any jazz violinist alive today” (FAZ/ Germany).

Bałdych goes uncompromisingly on his own way, permanently showing new musical areas that he has discovered for himself. His music derives from the rich source of classical music techniques and sounds, but in its nature it is unpredictable, free and deeply rooted in the jazz idiom
