Adrian Robak aka Adek Robak

Poland, Chorzów
I was born in 1979 in Bytom. Studies were made of the composition under prof. Aleksander Lason in the Katowice Academy of Music, graduating in 2008 (with honors). I've studied music theory in parallel. During the course of the study was a two scholarships from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage for outstanding academic performance. I'm a composer orchestral works, chamber and choral works. I also composed for films ("Days of my life" and "Blocks memory of Marian Kolodziej"), and my compositions have been performed at festivals in the country (for example, "Mikolow Music Days" in Mikolow) and abroad (for example, "Incontro Internazionale Citta di Fano Polifonico "in Italy).
The beginnings were focused on composing choral compositions, which is already half of the more than 40 compositions. Among the more important of these compositions are "Popule Meus" the a cappella choir (formed in 2005 and dedicated it to Henry Cierpiołowi ed.), a series of three song-prayers "Deprecatio Marialis" (004-2005), "Déjà vu - Symphony Concertante no I"(2007-2008), "Tantum ergo", for chorus a cappella (2008) String Quartet No. 1 (2008-2009) and "Silesia 1921" for orchestra&choir.
In 2007-2009 I was an accompanist, singer, and eventually an assistant director in the Katowice City Singers' Ensemble "Camerata Silesia". I collaborated with outstanding musicians and ensembles Polish scene (eg, the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice, Poland) and European (eg, Wiener Symphoniker). I have performed in major concert halls in Poland (Warsaw Philharmonic), and in the world (eg, the Gran Teatro La Fenice in Venice, Lincoln Center - New York Philharmony in the U.S., Bregenzer Festspiele in Austria, Canterbury Cathedral in the UK).
I have a neat collection of achievements in studies and transcription. My score was performed including Grand Theatre in Poznan, and the audience was such as director David Lynch (on the occasion of the exhibition is happening-Fri "Hotel Landschaft").
I'm the author of "Family Tree of the Silesian Composers of the twentieth century" (unreleased). I'm also the founder of an informal group of "Leonardo" dealing with philosophy and other humanities-natural science.
I'm a member of the Polish Composers Union (ZKP, now in the structures of the Board of the Silesian branch) and the Association of Authors and Composers Performing (ZAiKS).
