In late October and early November, Marek will share his music with the Japanese audience, in Tokyo and Fukui.

The recital in Tokyo takes place at the Yamaha Hall, featuring the pieces originally written for other instruments
than cello–
Bach: Adagio from “Toccata, Adagio and Fugue” for organ
Schubert: Arpeggione Sonata
Bernstein: Clarinet Sonata
Franck: Violin Sonata
and Marek’s own arrangement of Chopin No.1 Ballade.

He is also invited to the inaugural Tsuruga International Culture Festival in Fukui.
In 1920 and 1922, about 800 Polish orphans stranded in Siberia arrived at Tsuruga port, with the aid of the Japanese Red Cross Society. After recuperating their health, those children traveled to the U.S., and could eventually return to Poland, their homeland.

Marek will perform the Chopin Cello Sonata as well as other pieces on November 3, in gratitude for people in Tsuruga who helped Polish children almost a century ago.
