KOŚCIUSZKO joue KOŚCIUSZKO
General Tadeusz Kościuszko (1746-1817) is considered a national hero in Poland and the United States for his role in the struggle for independence in both countries. He was also a respected composer. His descendant, and Poland’s leading classical guitarist Jakub Kościuszko (accompanied by clarinetist Jan Jakub Bokun), pays tribute to the binational hero in a recital featuring works by his ancestor as well as Polish and American composers including Frédéric Chopin, Alexandre Tansman, Pat Metheny and Keith Jarrett.
This concert is presented in the context of the FICEP Semaine des cultures étrangères, in partnership with the Institut Polonais and with the patronage of UNESCO.
