Join us for a program featuring works of Fryderyk Chopin and Ignacy Jan Paderewski, presented by Ewa Poblocka & Multi Trio.  

Many years ago, before Ewa Poblocka graduated from the Music Academy in Gdansk and won the laurels at international competitions, she accompanied her mother, singer Zofia Janukowicz-Poblocka, at the piano. The repertoire of that duo consisted mainly of Polish chants, alongside masterpieces of the European vocal art. As time goes in circles, in 2013 Ewa Poblocka performed together with her daughters Ewa Leszczynska and Maria Leszczynska as Multi Trio. The idea came from Hubert Poblocki, their father and grandfather. The first concert of the family trio took place in Wejherowo. For a good reason, as this was where Ewa Poblocka made her stage début accompanying her mother.

The age gap between Ewa and Maria is big enough to say that there are three generations represented on stage the mother at the piano, the elder daughter vocals and piano, and the younger playing the piano, cello and saxophone. We can listen to their performances in various configurations and different instrument combinations, and since there are not many original compositions for a trio, the band recurs to adaptations and arrangements of the selected works. Masterpieces of Romanticism are the core of their repertoire.

Multi Trio is conscious about promoting Polish contemporary music, regularly inviting young musicians to collaborate.
