Maciej Sztor...

Maciej Sztor is one of the few conductors of the young generation, who specialise in film orchestras intended for a big number of performers. His repertoire includes the notable compositions by John Williams, Hans Zimmer and James Horner. Maciej Sztor was the first to start a series of film music concerts, combining the tradition of symphony orchestra concerts with expectations of a wider group of music lovers. He received letters with congratulations and acknowledgement for film music promotion from John Williams, Hans Zimmer and James Horner.

...and his passion...

“Film music, contrary to popular beliefs, often challenges performers, in a similar way, works of art by great symphonists, in regard to both technical difficulties and interpreting requirements. For me, it is the music of our times as it combines tradition and modernity. This uncompromising type of music conveys, in a modern and communicative way, emotions that have accompanied mankind for centuries: love and hate, joy and sadness, courage and fear… It is written in the spirit of great symphonies by Mahler, Shostakowich and Bruckner and it often uses the same “colour pallet” that Strauss, Wagner and Ravel used in their works. My inspirations for interpreting this kind of music are great symphonic creations by Leonard Bernstein and Stanislaw Skrowaczewski It may be effectively performed in a form of a concert, without losing its power and sense. It will live a life of its own.”
