An Evening with Krzysztof Orlowski, part 1 of 2


Original YT playout date: 27 March 2010
Duration: 14:14

Much travelled Silesian musician Krzysztof Orlowski, whose group and whose own compositions you can find on https://annapietrzak.com/gitana-electric-eclectic-2/ is a gentleman I met in this place, Hotel Amber at Olesnica, one year ago. I filmed his concert at the restaurant and put it on youtube, it was appreciated by the viewers and also Krzysztof himself saw it, and got in contact with me.

These days he’s not playing at Amber so regularly, but was kind enough to come and join me for one evening and played a few of his fine medleys. In this part, we can hear his medley of Piaf’s “”Vie en Rose”” with Burt Bacharach’s “”I’ll never fall in love again””, as well as the Girl from Ipanema performed with impeccable style.

Anna’s Tale


Original YT playout date: 7 March 2010
Duration: 7:21

This is the title of the tune here, by my friend Krzysztof Orlowski, whom you may remember meeting in my film of Amber Hotel in Olesnice about a year back. I also have more footage of his fine playing to play out in the near future from my visit to the same place this year.

Krzysztof gave me a fine CD of his music, which you could get on http://www.gitana.pl – though not sure that page is still going. It is very well produced. I noticed that the song “”Anna’s Tale”” went very interestingly together with this footage taken recently landing in a blizzard at Warsaw airport, so I chose this clip to showcase this evocative and mysterious piece.

If you are wondering why a lot of the start of this video appears to be a blank screen, look again, and you will see the snow whipping by as a multitude of tiny horizontal lines. And then the snow-covered land appears below through the clouds…”

This piece would have done for a broad range of films actually. In retrospect, the dark landing barely does it any justice. I could have used it in a much better context. This guy did great music but became practically invisible, like Richard Halley.
