The Polish guitar player Raphael Rogiński studied jazz and classical music and is also a composer, improvisor, curator and ethnomusicologist. With a background firmly rooted in the Jewish culture he explores forgotten musical traditions and translates them to the present. But also American blues and rock from the fifties and sixties, folk music from all over the world, old music and improvisation are strong anchor points in his work. Releases like Bach Bleach, Rogiński Plays John Coltrane And Langston Hughes African Mystic Music or Rogiński Plays Henry Purcell already speaks volumes. For the upcoming concert on September 23rd Raphael Rogiński will create a unique musical universe inspired by Bach, Purcell and Coltrane.
‘(From) Bach to the Future’ – is an adventurous concert series at the Museum Vleeshuis and a great opportunity to casually discover how Baroque still lives on in contemporary music, albeit in different forms.
