Grzegorz Miskiewicz, Composer
My approach to classical music:
My approach to music depends on to whom I address it. It is a context - otherwise I write music for children and young people differently to adults. You have to bear in mind certain requirements, limitations or possibilities. In this sense it is a kind crafts. Besides, there is no music without craft. So down to earth that to think well of all the circumstances upon which the load-bearing capacity of my music. Always empathizes with the customer, I want to give people what I'd like to receive. This is the top layer, but underneath it is the only musical idea.
