Founded by clarinetist, improviser and composer Paweł Szamburski in conjunction with two other unconventional musicians: Tomasz Pokrzywiński (cello) and Michał Górczyński (contrabass clarinet). This unusual combination of instruments creates a unique, completely new timbre, which has become the characteristic feature of Bastarda’s style.
The Trio has been praised for creating their own musical language, which has become the tool for reinterpreting early music. Chorales, motets and litanies are merely starting points for improvisation and new compositions. Rich counterpoint of early polyphony implodes into minimalism. The “alla bastarda” method finds its way in a new context. That way musical traditions of the past morph into A modern, original and personal artistic voice.
