Jan Garbarek Group, Miuosh and Jakub Józef Orliński were the stars invited to this year’s Young Arts Festival. The programme features only three concerts – but each one was a gem! Nowy Styl is a regular partner of this event, that’s why we would kindly like to invite you to explore the summary of this edition.
Young Arts Festival is a musical crossover that sets out to seek for unique combinations. In promoting bold inspirations it becomes a space where the new meets the classic and a note of jazz to form a brand new quality. The festival has been organised in Krosno for the past six years and it features the best stars and representatives of various music genres. This year’s edition was held in the public ice rink arena. Although the weather could not be relied upon, the participants gathered under the concert tent. Explore the video account of this event.
On Thursday, 26th August, the festival started with the performance of a jazz star, Jan Garbarek. It was the first time this Norwegian artist appeared in the Podkarpacie region and one of his three concerts in the world this year. Another highlight of this year’s edition was Trilok Gurtu, one of the best drummers in the world, who showed his mastery in a unique combination of jazz and Indian music. The artists were accompanied by Rainer Brüninghaus (piano) and Yuri Daniel (bass guitar).
The second day of Young Arts Festival belonged to Miuosh – a Silesian rapper and music producer, who celebrated 20th anniversary of his artistic career this year. His performance was particularly popular among young people, but the artist’s positive energy also sent the older generations dancing. In the last part of the concert Miuosh invited a string quartet to join him on stage. The musicians were: Bartłomiej Tełewiak, Krzysztof Lenczowski, Mateusz Smoczyński and Michał Zaborski.
Saturday (28th August) focused on workshops and sightseeing. The highlight of this day was the meeting with Aneta and Robert Naczas – artists who live in Krosno and make unique musical instruments. This artistic duo design and manufacture the instruments based on their own ideas and inspired by Celtic, Slavic or Norse art as well as the Wild West classics. Another attraction was a tour of the Farna Tower to the accompaniment of jazz renditions of Chopin’s musical pieces.
On Sunday (29th August) the festival ended with the performance of a world-famous counter-tenor Jakub Józef Orliński and a Baroque violinist – Stefan Plewniak. The soloists were accompanied by an early music orchestra Il Giardino d’Amore. The guests could listen to a programme titled EROI – battalia tra strumento e la voce, whose central point was the unique rivalry between Orliński’s vocals and Plewniak’s violin. While performing the pieces by Vivaldi and Haendel, they offered an unorthodox approach to music – for a moment they performed lying down on the floor. Their interpretation was bold, moving and intriguing. They won the hearts of the audience, who rewarded them with a prolonged standing ovation.
Nowy Styl has been a partner of this festival since the beginning. In this edition we not only offered financial support, but we also arranged a special chill-out zone for the artists. We also organised a few competitions for the people of Krosno and the participants of the festival, and offered discounted tickets to our employees. We would like to thank all those who visited us during the festival and offer congratulations to the winners of this year’s edition. We feel an affinity with music and are only too happy to be able to support such events as Nowy Styl.
