(February 11 – New York, NY) Following his beautiful and popular take on Chopin’s Nocturne Op. 9 No.2, MARCIN, the dynamic 21-year old Polish musician, composer, producer, and percussive acoustic guitarist, today releases a brand-new unique version of a world-famous work by Bach – ‘Toccata & Fugue in D Minor BWV 565’ – listen here Released together with today’s stunning new track is the official music video showcasing Marcin’s unique and versatile guitar style and his mastery of his instrument – watch here.
With his virtuosic and entertaining clips on TikTok, Marcin has now reached over 1 million followers on the platform. His YouTube videos are also eagerly watched by millions with close to 600.000 subscribers. On Instagram Marcin has amassed over 400.000 followers.
In March, Marcin will be making his concert debut in the UK, performing from March 17-20, 2022 in four ‘Classical Spectactular’ shows at the Royal Albert Hall, where he will perform the ‘Habanera’ from Bizet’s ‘Carmen’ alongside the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as well as the Bach ‘Toccata’ to tie-in with his new track release.
About the upcoming new release and his UK concert debut, Marcin says: “I could not ask for a better beginning to 2022, as I’m gearing up to release my most unique arrangement by far – Bach’s Toccata. It is one of the most dramatic pieces in the history of music – and I definitely love the drama. The arrangement challenges a traditional view of the piece with something brand new. I’m really proud of it – it includes a lot of my new additions, like the synths and 808 bass throughout, a full ballad tremolo part, and even a Latin reggaeton-infused section. Even more exciting is the fact that less than a month later, I will share it with audiences in the iconic Royal Albert Hall as a guest of Classical Spectacular, along with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Amazing!”
Marcin rapidly rose to prominence in 2015 after winning the Polish talent show Must Be The Music and Italy’s biggest TV competition Tu Si Que Vales in the same year. He also captivated a huge TV audience of over 10 million in the USA when he reached the semi-finals of America’s Got Talent. Equally at home performing classical music as rock and pop and original material, Marcin’s popularity grew as his music enjoyed instant online success through postings of his performance videos by media outlets as diverse as Classic FM and Metal Hammer. Appealing to a wide audience of all ages, this outstanding young artist has developed a massive following on social media that ranges from die-hard music fans to budding guitarists who hang on to each of his novel moves. Viewers have particularly enjoyed his solo acoustic guitar arrangement of Beethoven‘s legendary Fifth Symphony, where he deftly rearranges the entire orchestral score – originally for 80 instruments – and performs all parts simultaneously. Other firm favourites with fans are his version of ‘Toxicity’ by System of a Down, ‘Kashmir’ by Led Zeppelin, Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight Sonata’, Chopin’s ‘Nocturne Op. 9 No. 2’ and his own original composition, ‘Snow Monkey’. This dazzling young musician has already secured his place as one of the brightest stars in the guitar firmament.
