Leszek Możdżer & Zohar Fresco

Przemek Krzakiewicz
Opera House

Komeda. The Chopin of jazz meets oriental drum magician.

Leszek Możdżer (p), Zohar Fresco (perc).
The Polish star pianist has been effortlessly filling large halls on his own for a long time and will be making a guest appearance in a duo with Zohar Fresco at the 36th Leipzig Jazz Days at the Opera House. The jazz musician, born in Gdańsk in 1971, sat at the piano for the first time at the age of five and has made a name for himself worldwide with this instrument. Numerous prizes and CD recordings pave his way, and he also repeatedly writes music for theater productions and films. Musicians such as Pat Metheny, Lester Bowie and Tomasz Stańko have invited him to play together, and he has recorded four albums with bassist Lars Danielsson. Most recently, he thrilled audiences with his interpretations of works by Fryderyk Chopin and Krzysztof Komeda.

Zohar Fresco grew up in Israel in a family of Turkish descent. He began playing percussion instruments at an early age, drawing on the rich repertoire of the music of his homeland. He also picks up elements of Arabic and Asian traditions and combines them with Western patterns. He was a founding member of the acoustic band "Bustan Abraham", which brought together Israeli and Arab musicians and jointly produced six albums.
