In recent years Polish composer Jerzy Bielski has created completely unique theatrical and anarchistic performances for Gaudeamus, among others. He began his career with the eclectic 9-piece band Circuit, which sounded as if György Ligeti and members of the British ska group Madness had joined Frank Zappa’s band. For Gaudeamus 2022 he brings the band back together to celebrate the return of live music, with a performance that partly resembles a concert and partly nothing at all.
