JERZY KAPLANEK, one of Canada’s top violinists performs with the DAVE YOUNG JAZZ TRIO
with Dave Young bass, Robi Botos piano & Ethan Ardelli drums
Bassist and composer Dave Young possesses artistic soul, and musical skill in abundance. His exceptional career has made him a much sought-after jazz bassist who regularly performs internationally with an array of jazz (and classical) luminaries, as well as with his own performing units. He was honoured at “The 2003 National Jazz Awards” as “Jazz Bassist of the Year”.
Violinist Jerzy Kapłanek has established himself internationally as a chamber musician, member of the celebrated Penderecki String Quartet, soloist, dedicated teacher, adjudicator, artistic director of QuartetFest and lately as a jazz violinist. He performs throughout Europe, Asia, and North and South America over 80 concerts each season. Jerzy Kapłanek is presently an Associate Professor at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, where since 1991 he has been teaching violin and chamber music. He frequently gives master classes in Canada and abroad.
