Leszek Mozdzer

ACT Music

The year pianist Leszek Mozdzer was born, Roman Polanski was already two years into the loss of his sonic right arm, the great Polish jazz composer Krzysztof Komeda, who died of a cerebral hematoma in 1969 at the young age of 38.

Arguably the most effective element of essentially every inch of acclaimed celluloid shot by the controversial filmmaker in his heyday was the haunting piano work of Komeda, whose compositions for such classic films as Knife In The Water, Cul-De-Sac and Rosemary’s Baby are beautifully interpreted by Mozdzer on this excellent solo tribute in addition to his non-film score work as “Svantetic” and “Ballad for Bernt.” Fans of the art of the film and piano jazz alike will appreciate the beauty of this eloquent tribute to one of Poland’s true music icons.
