‘Following the release of a CD “Improvisations with Bashir” pianist Jozef Kapustka presents his “Improvisatio III”, “Improvisatio IV” and “Improvisatio V” in a series of recitals in some of London’s most popular concert venues.
As Roger Thomas has described it in the International Record Review, Kapustka’s ” extensive solo piano workout is a fine example [of contemporary interest in the Eastern musical tradition], its slowly developing, restrained extemporizations building sonic structures that seem to shimmer like desert mirages”. Luc Nevers of the “Pianiste” review (France) called Kapustka’s improvisations “hypnotizing”, pointing out to an interesting discovery on the contemporary classical music scene….
Polish-born Jozef Kapustka graduated from New York Juilliard School, where he studied with Josef Raieff and Jerome Lowenthal; and London Royal Academy of Music, studying with Martin Roscoe. Besides his solo piano career that has taken him to all corners of the globe, faithful to the ecclectic agenda he is currently working on a Yiddish revival project with singer/actress Barbara Suie. Jozef Kapustka lives in Paris.’ (PCI)
