Marek Moś

An eminent Polish conductor as well as violinist and chamber musician; founder and artistic director of AUKSO – Chamber Orchestra of the City of Tychy; director of the AUKSO Summer Philharmonic and Auksodrone festivals. He was the founder and longtime first violinist of the Silesian String Quartet, which quickly emerged as one of Europe’s most outstanding string quartets. His broad musical horizons and openness to new experiences are reflected in his twenty years’ leadership of one of Europe’s best chamber orchestras, AUKSO, which he conducts in classical contemporary, film, jazz, and popular repertoires. The artist has a special preference for crossover projects, which has led to collaborations with leading Polish electro-acoustic and foreign electronic music artists, as well as concerts with a galaxy of Polish jazz stars.

Moś is also a highly regarded interpreter of contemporary Polish music. He has conducted the world premieres of compositions by Aleksander Nowak, Aleksander Lasoń, Zygmunt Krauze, Grażyna Pstrokońska-Nawratil, Cezary Duchnowski, and Agata Zubel. His recordings have been released under such labels as Nonesuch, EMI Classics, Anaklasis, DUX, BeArTon, and CD Accord.

His numerous accolades include the award of the International Rostrum of Composers in Paris, Coryphaeus of Polish Music, the Silver Medal for Merit to Polish Culture – Gloria Artis, and several Fryderyk Awards. In 2009 the city of Tychy granted him its honorary citizenship. Apart from his intense concert and recording schedule, Moś is a lecturer at Katowice’s Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music.
