About

Zbigniew Seifert (1946-1979) was one of the most eminent Polish jazz musicians and a man of incredible musical talent. His untimely death did not let him fully develop his musical abilities and interrupted a promising worldwide career.


Our competition is open to musicians representing different musical styles, techniques of performance and types of compositions. The institutions that co-organise this competition hope that it will help discover musical individualities as great as Seifert himself. We expect exciting musical experiences, artistic surprises and plenty of emotions related to the presentation of music written by artists of the young generation.

The founder and initiator of the International Zbigniew Seifert Jazz Violin Competition is Małgorzata Jantos, PhD, Chair of the Board (COB) of Zbigniew Seifert Foundation.

The International Zbigniew Seifert Jazz Violin Competition will be held in cooperation with the Summer Jazz Festival in “Piwnica pod Baranami” in Cracow.
