While presenting Janusz Bielecki’s biography as a composer, one cannot traditionally start with the childhood and the professional path. This moment of the extraordinary beginning already reveals that we are dealing with a unique person. What else can one call a grown-up man, a fulfilled businessman and a sponsor of art who decides to commit himself to his artistic passion and do something what we all think about: make his dreams come true.
It is this moment precisely that Janusz Bielecki’s path as a composer starts, who is the one of the most interesting people present on the contemporary music scene, both in Poland and abroad.
The first album released by Janusz Bielecki Rozterka (eng. ‘A dilemma’) is the collection of music pieces for the piano describing the ground-breaking moment in the artist’s life. Simultaneously it is the first expression of his creative character – full of passion, emotional and with a flair for romantics, through which Bielecki puts himself in the row of his great Romantic predecessors, whose work will always reflect itself in his compositions. Not only did Janusz Bielecki compose the pieces for his album, but he also performed them, debuted as a publisher and, as usually in his life, he took care of every detail of this project himself.
The success of the first album and intensified interest in Janusz Bielecki as a person encouraged him to take another big step of bringing to life Bielecki Art Foundation (www.bieleckiart.pl) in 2009.
Janusz Bielecki has also cooperated with the Screen & Sound Fest. - Let's See The Music Festival (www.screenandsound.pl) from its very beginning. The composer creates and inspires, fulfilling his own dreams and simultaneously opening paths for the new generation of artists.
Contact with young creators, numerous trips and new artistic experiences contributed to the release of Bielecki’s compositions.
- albums: Desires, Mirrors, Clocks, Secrets
- pieces: Summer Colours, Concertino, Melancholy, Symphony of Senses, Sonata Libera, Dance miniatures, Passacaglia, Blues

From the very beginning the composer has focused on cherishing musical friendships, which resulted in many years of cooperation with Polish and foreign artists. They include conductors, instrumentalists and the entire groups of performers in the area of both classical music and film music.
The artist’s achievements include chamber and symphonic concerts, soundtracks and musical setting for prestigious events.
However, what he perceives as a unique experience is meeting the audience – both during the events when he himself plays the piano and when other artists play his compositions.
The composer himself emphasizes that through his artistic creation he is trying to capture the abundance of the world of emotions, and the music is his own language in which he writes down what he believes to be beautiful and important.
Janusz Bielecki is constantly looking for inspirations; while travelling across the world, he listens to people, notes down melodies, opens himself to new artistic experiences and transforms them into music pearls which express joy and delight with life, and which are full of grace, authenticity and passion – like him.
