Songs about Time

2019

 

"Songs about Time", the latest album by the Polish pianist and composer Sebastian Zawadzki, is his first studio album since 2018's "Norn". The album is an unique blend of classical, ambient and experimental music, and was recorded with prominent artists - strings quartet NeoQuartet, vocal ensamble The Art of Escapism and Sebastian on pianos and synths. The album features a kaleidoscopic array of instrumentations, from string quartet to electronics and different kind of pianos, drawing from the Polish composer’s minimal, serene style to produce a focused, postmodern work.

"There's no past and there's no future. It's being here now that's important. Time is a very misleading thing. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it."

 

Compositions were written in Copenhagen, Warsaw and Los Angeles in 2017/2018.

 

Po latach

Po długich latach pierwszy raz 
Idę jesienną tą aleją. 
Jak mija czas, jak mija czas.

Pożółkłe liście lip się chwieją 
I drży na ścieżce modry cień. 
Z dwu stron dwa rzędy pni czernieją.

Na ławkę, o stuletni pień 
Wspartą, rzuciłem nagle okiem... 
Tutaj siedzieliśmy w ów dzień...

Przeszedłem mimo szybkim krokiem.

Leopold Staff
