Part of Poland’s 8th Jazztopad Festival, Dizzy’s Club proudly presents Kris Davis and the Lutoslawski Quartet premiering The Solastalgia Suite. Drawing inspiration from Olivier Messiaen’s haunting Quartet for the End of Time composed amid the turmoil of World War II, The Solastalgia Suite explores the impact of environmental change. Davis bonds influential elements from Messiaen, Beyoncé, and Cecil Taylor, creating a living work that dissolves clear boundaries between what’s scripted and what’s spontaneous.

For the past twenty years, Jazztopad Festival has commissioned music from major American and European artists including Wayne Shorter, Charles Lloyd, Jason Moran, Joelle Leandre, Vincent Courtois, William Parker, Vijay Iyer and Terence Blanchard. Jazztopad’s international creative partnerships have included such prestigious organizations as the Monterey Jazz Festival, Kennedy Center, London Jazz Festival and Los Angeles Philharmonic. Live recordings from the festival have been released by ECM and Blue Note Records.

The American edition of Jazztopad is first and foremost an opportunity to get to know the most important artists of the Polish contemporary jazz scene, which is a strongly recognized brand in the world both in terms of the quality of the festivals and the artistry of the featured musicians.

The project is organized by the National Forum of Music in Wroclaw in partnership with the Polish Cultural Institute New York.
