Gold Record for the jazz sonata by Chopin

Andrzej Jagodziński Trio received the Gold Record (pl. Złota Płyta) for the jazz recording of "Sonata in B-flat minor" by Fryderyk Chopin.

The gala event took place on January 22, 2011, at the concert in the Och-Teatr. The "Sonata in B-flat minor" is the most recent project by Andrzej Jagodziński. It is yet one more step on the path of artistic research in the common ground of classical music and jazz. The Chopin recordings series started with the "Chopin" album launched in December 1993, gaining immediate international recognition. The disc issued in 1999 titled "Chopin Once More" was equally successful. Jagodziński, in his artistic activities, has focused on arrangements of themes or short excerpts of Fryderyk Chopin's compositions, using it as a starting point of jazz improvisation. The most recent suggestion of the artist comprises transformation of a large musical form focusing on modification of all parts and themes of the composition, not only single citations.
