Internationally-renowned violinist Jerzy Kaplanek is joined by great Toronto jazz musicians to explore a combination of jazz standards and originals. In-person and online.

Internationally-renowned violinist Jerzy Kaplanek has established himself as a chamber musician, member of the celebrated Penderecki String Quartet, soloist, dedicated teacher, adjudicator, artistic director of QuartetFest and lately as a jazz violinist.

With his sublime, soulful sound, the Kaplanek Quartet will explore a combination of jazz standards and originals. They will introduce us to the varied and powerful tunes by iconic jazz violinists Jean-Luc Ponty, Didier Lockwood, Zbigniew Seifert and Adam Baldych. Spend an evening at the Jazz Room going on this musical journey with Kaplanek as he brings the high-powered jazz-fusion vibe that suits his violin playing so perfectly.

Jerzy is joined by Anthony D’Alessandro (piano), Mark Godfrey (bass) and Ian Wright (drums).
For the “warm-up” act, Mr. Kaplanek is joined by pianist Ken Gee in Ravel’s Sonata no. 1 for violin and piano, opus posthumous.
