YKEDA DUO has specialised in performing piano music for four hands (although they also play on two pianos). They are devoting their enormous respective talents to the celebration of this rich and exciting repertoire, and are now considered as its most outstanding proponents. Tamayo and Patrick will be taking on the artistic direction of the “Musiques Festiv” festival in Bordeaux (France) and Yokohama (Japan).

LESZEK MOZDZER an outstanding pianist, composer and producer is widely considered to be the greatest revelation of the Polish jazz of the last decade. Born in 1971, he has played the piano since the age of five. On many occasions Mozdzer recorded film music with Zbigniew Preisner. He also regularly works with Jan Kaczmarek. Improvisations on the themes by Fryderyk Chopin have strengthned his position of the artist and ranked him among the most oustanding individualities and virtuosos of the European jazz.
