Tomasz Pokrzywiński

Pho­to Wouter Jansen

Tomasz Pokrzy­wińs­ki grad­u­at­ed from the Fry­deryk Chopin Acad­e­my of Music in War­saw (sound engi­neer­ing) and Guild­hall School of Music and Dra­ma in Lon­don (Baroque cel­lo). He con­tin­ues to coop­er­ate with the ensem­bles Arte dei Suona­tori and Hol­land Baroque, he also col­lab­o­rates as a guest con­cert­mas­ter with the Acad­e­my of Ancient Music, {oh!} His­tor­i­cal Orches­tra and La Nuo­va Musi­ca, and as a cham­ber musi­cian he per­forms with such artists as Rachel Podger, Marcin Świątkiewicz or Marcin Masec­ki. He records music for Har­mo­nia Mun­di, Chan­nel Clas­sics, BBC, Alpha and BIS.

The wide cir­cle of his con­stant­ly devel­oped music inter­ests has result­ed in the fact that today he is not just a Baroque cel­list but also a sound engi­neer, arranger, impro­vis­er and man­ag­er. He likes break­ing stereo­types and explor­ing the bor­der­lines of clas­si­cal music, that is why he cre­ates or co-cre­ates such ini­tia­tives as: Fes­ti­val 3x3, cycles Tran­scrip­tions and Clas­si­cal Jams, Silence Zone Fes­ti­val, or “Smyko­fo­nia”.

Since 2016, he has taught the option­al sub­ject of Baroque cel­lo at the Fry­deryk Chopin Uni­ver­si­ty of Music.
