Janusz Bielecki

Janusz Bielecki

Jury Member

composer, patron, creator of solo, chamber, and symphonic music.

The composer's works are included in the repertoires of well known artist and programs of prestigious concert halls (for example the Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona, Großer Saal Musikverein in Vienna, Sydney Opera House in Sydney, as well as the largest Polish concert halls). Janusz Bielecki over the course of just a few years became one of Poland's leading artists. In his compositions it is possible to find inspirations coming from works by F. Chopin, R. Schumann, or B. Bartok. However, they constitute a contemporary record of the richness of human emotions and experiences. In them it is possible to clearly hear the remarkable composing sensitivity concerning the multi-color world of feelings, which undoubtedly connects them with the musical works of the romanticism era.

Apart from composing, Janusz Bielecki promotes young and talented artists, as well as inspires original artistic projects. He founded the Bielecki Art Foundation, www.bieleckiart.pl, which supports the musically gifted youth. He is also the initiator of the international competition and festival Screen & Sound Fest. – Let’s see the music, www.screenandsound.pl.
