Concert Valentine’s day

Just to say that I'll be performing in Glasgow on February 14th at 1530 for an hour. It'll be a programme of romantic music, but nothing specifically romantic itself. Schubert: 6 songs (arranged by Mertz): Lob der Thranen, Liebesbothschaft, Aufenthalt, Standchen, Die Post, Das Fischermadchen Villa - Lobos - 5 Preludes J. S. Bach - [...]

Upcoming stuff

So yeah, on Thursday I will be performing the Rodrigo Concierto D'aranjuez in Hull with the Isle of Axholme Symphony Orchestra, and that should be good. After that on Monday I fly to Liechtenstein to participate in a guitar competition so I must work for that as well.

Concert next Monday

I will be performing the Sequenza again in the final guitar department concert this Monday coming (I think it's the 25th), and I think most of the department will be playing as well. So yeah, come along if you can.

Plug concert review

So Michael Tumelty from the Herald reviewed the lunchtime concert of that last Friday after having been there, and it was published today. "Then came utter magic in Marek Pasieczny's guitar Sequenza, which took the guitar into little-explored, often exotic and always beguiling territory, and played by, I believe, the finest acoustic guitarist I have [...]


Also, I forgot to say. I will probably be playing in Aberdeen over the summer in the Aberdeen International Youth Festival. George Duthie (a pianist at the RSAMD, and colleague from my time at the Aberdeen City Music School) will play a selection of works for guitar and piano, and of course some solo as [...]

Yeah so…

Yeah so the Sequenza went ok I think. People seemed to enjoy the piece, which Marek seemed almost surprised at, and I was kinda pleased with how  played it. Oh and he has put a wee entry on it onto his website. I'm thinking about doing competitions in Poland over the summer, in addition to [...]

Eindhoven recital

Yeah, so Ian and I, back in I think November played to the Duo Lisme as part of a masterclass in the RSAMD. So they were really nice and took to our playing for some reason, then dedicated one of their pieces in their concert that evening to us. Which was embarrasing of course, but [...]

Concert on Friday

Yeah so umm I've not been here in a while, just been busy or i'm making excuses for myself. There is the PLUG composition festival on at the RSAMD at the moment, so basically nearly all the students must learn some crazy hard piece and perform it. I have the Sequenza no. 12 by Marek [...]

Concert tomorrow

I am playing for 15 minutes in a concert in central Glasgow, so if you are free to come please do. It promises to be good. All performers are from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. This is the church interior. It's pretty nice actually...I thought it would be a kinda modernish one, but this [...]

Summer recitals

I performed a series of three solo recitals during August in Edinburgh this year, all of which were based around the work "Jacob's Ladder", by Haflidi Hallgrimsson (recently appointed composer in residence for the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra). I recieved a small 'taster' piece in The List, a magazine following musical events in and around Scotland, but more notably [...]
