Jerzy Chwastyk

‘A Master of breathing and vocal line on the guitar’ –

this is how the playing of the Polish musician Jerzy Chwastyk was described by the Pizzicato magazine.

Jerzy Chwastyk’s extensive repertoire ranges from traditional and classical guitar music to innovative projects and unusual chamber music projects with other artists.

These include collaborations with the Neuköllner Oper, the actor Hanns Zischler, the bandoneonist Omar Massa, among others.

This versatility is also evidenced by his two highly acclaimed solo CDs: La Joia (2017) and Iberian Soundscapes (2020), “dichter.liebe” (Prospero Classical) with Hanns Zischler and Susanne Szambelan.

On the album “dichter.liebe” recorded in 2022 with Susanne Szambelan and Hanns Zischler and nominated twice for the prestigious OPUS KLASSIK award,, he also appeared as an arranger of songs by Robert Schumann – the first transcription of the well-known cycle was praised by critics as an “absolutely monumental and poignant” work.

Jerzy Chwastyk is a prize winner of many renowned competitions (Concurso Sigall/ Chile, Concurso Fernando Sor/Madrid und Concurso Segovia in Linares and in La Herradura) and since 2023 artistic director of Alma Concerts and Sounds of Surrender festival in Wrocław.
