The long-awaited second album of the 2nd season of AC Records “Mozart Rocks & Swings” released on reel analogue tape in 2021. The much-anticipated album, filled with unique compositions and unusual arrangements. “Mozart Rocks & Swings” is a truly innovative interpretation of the grand Viennese composer’s music. It is transferred into the world of contemporary sounds by the esteemed guitarist Marcin Wądołowski, among others. Album by Adam Czerwiński and Marcin Wądołowski, this is direct first copy from the master tape.

It is an unusual approach to the classics that in an almost shocking way reminds a contemporary audience of the most eminent works of world music. The bold interpretation brought the uninhibited spirit of jazz and unrestrained energy of true rock to the classic compositions. The arrangements of Marcin Wądołowski sound this elegant thanks to the cooperation with experienced musicians: Adam Czerwiński, Piotr Lemańczyk and Artur Jurek.

Additionally, this innovative project was honoured with a guest appearance of a brilliant violinist, Alicja Śmietana. The refined sound of her violin gives the edition both a touch of power and gentleness.

If you think that combining the classics with modernity has nothing new to offer in today’s music, check out how Mozart’s “Requiem” is given a new lease of life!

The deep sound of this unique record is guaranteed by the collaboration with the Gdańsk-based Custom34 studio. It is famous for its world-class acoustic parameters and has already hosted many great artists from the alternative or popular music scene.

Recorded as a fully analogue track, using iconic microphones and natural acoustics, the classic pieces get their rightful form even in a modern interpretation, which is still full of the sense of experiencing something really great.
