Tomasz Stańko.Archive

is a platform with archive material from the life and work of this outstanding Polish composer, trumpeter and band leader.

The first instalment consists of selected compositions from various periods in Stańko’s life. The objects have been digitalised and made available as follows:

  • photographs of autograph music manuscripts
  • faithful transcriptions of those manuscripts into musical notation (in two formats)

Thanks to the kindness of ECM Records and with the support of the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, these manuscripts are made available free of charge for educational and scholarly purposes.

The original manuscripts are part of the Tomasz Stańko Foundation collection, established and run by the artist’s daughter, Anna Stańko.

This selection, representing a cross-section of more than 50 years’ work, lifts just a corner of the veil, but it already delights and amazes the listener with its unique riches.
