In addition to being a conductor, composter and entrepreneur, Marcin Masecki is one of Poland’s most interesting pianists. As such, he oversees or is a member of a plethora of projects with a wide range of genres and stylistic approaches. His virtuosic fusion of opposing genres as well as the blurring of borders between high art and entertainment have become his trademark.
As a classical musician his recent release is an album devoted to Chopin’s Nocturnes, performed on his faithful companion – a small and rather dinky upright piano of British make. As in all his previous classical releases, Masecki presents well known masterpieces in a refreshingly new light, often challenging the way they are usually listened to. This time he puts into question the primacy of the expensive, perfect, polished, tuned and shining Steinway grand piano, thus injecting lo-fi into classical music.
