Welcome to www.arekadamczyk.com
I studied the bassoon at the Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw and then, having won several competitions in Poland, I moved to London to study at the Royal College of Music with Andrea di Flammineis and Martin Gatt. Since then I have been a freelance orchestral bassoonist with several major British and Polish orchestras.
As a soloist I have performed with a number of orchestras including Southbank Sinfonia, Zabrzanska Filharmonia, Lodzka Filharmonia, Podlaska Opera and Filharmonia, Elblaska Orkiestra Kameralna as well as Polish Radio Chamber Orchestra Amadeus. In 2013 I completed my Ph.D. on British Contemporary Bassoon music. I am London based, but travel regularly to Poland where I hold the position of bassoon professor at Paderewski Music Academy in Poznań. I play a #7244 Jubilee Edition Heckel bassoon.
