Visionary performance by violinist Adam Baldych electrifies new CD
(Published: June 25, 2011)

June 24, 2011 (New York, New York) Written by Robert Sutton. They call him "Evil." Yes, that's his nickname, but he bears no fangs nor horns on his head. In fact, there's really nothing evil about him although a few times on his latest album, Magical Theatre, it sounds like his violin is on fire.

However, the cause of the smoke has no supernatural origins but a case could be made that his playing is superhuman. His real name is Adam Baldych. Remember that because you will not forget the music that he creates.

Driven by a lifetime's absorption of Polish folk, classical music, and modern jazz, Magical Theatre truly exists in a genre of its own. Baldych's impeccable, visionary performances on Magical Theatre reveal the possibilities of the violin, ranging from fiery intensity to otherworldly prettiness. Baldych reaches the highs and lows of the emotional spectrum with stunningly vivid imagery, creating a kind of poetry that is narrated by musical notes.

Baldych started playing the violin at the age of 9 in Poland; his skills with it developed rather quickly. "When I was 11, I started taking part in violin contests," Baldych recalled. "Because of some success in them, I was a laureate of national classical contests, my educators believed in a career for me in classical music." However, Baldych's tastes expanded elsewhere. "At the age of 13, I became interested in jazz music," Baldych added. "Because of the freedom it gave me, I decided to go in this direction."

Even now, Baldych refuses to stay within a single style. "Many of my most recognized projects are inspired by modern music," Baldych revealed. "Since I'm also a music producer, I try to be inspired by many genres so that you can hear me playing jazz music as well as rock, classical, or drum & bass."
