A bit of family history
Many years ago, before she graduated from the Music Academy in Gdańsk and won the laurels at international competitions, Ewa Pobłocka accompanied her mother, singer Zofia Janukowicz-Pobłocka, at the piano. The repertoire of that duo consisted mainly of Polish chants, alongside masterpieces of the European vocal art. As time goes in circles, in 2013 Ewa Pobłocka performed together with her daughters Ewa Leszczyńska and Maria Leszczyńska as Multi Trio. The idea came from Hubert Pobłocki, their father and grandfather. Their friends were also very supportive. The first concert of the family trio took place in Wejherowo. For a good reason, as this was where Ewa Pobłocka made her stage début accompanying her mother.
The age gap between Ewa and Maria is big enough to say that there are three generations represented on stage – the mother at the piano, the elder daughter – vocals and piano, and the younger playing the piano, cello and saxophone. We can listen to their performances in various configurations and different instrument combinations, and since there are not many original compositions for a trio, the band recurs to adaptations and arrangements of the selected works. Masterpieces of Romanticism are the core of their repertoire.
Multi Trio is conscious about promoting Polish contemporary music, regularly inviting young musicians to collaborate.
