Jakub Jankowski is an Adelaide based composer. Chamber music has been the focus of his recent works - many of which have been championed by prestigious musicians from Australia and abroad.
Back in September 2017, Jakub’s cello sonata Aspects of Return, was premiered by Nicolas Altstaedt and Aleksandar Madžar as part of an Australia-wide recital tour for the 2017 Musica Viva International Concert Season.
In 2018, he completed a fanfare for the Adelaide Youth Orchestra, as well as two piano trios for the Seraphim Trio and Benaud Trio respectively.
In April 2019, Jakub was a composer in residence at the Tongyeong International Music Festival in South Korea - which featured performances of his works by the Fabergè Quintet, cellist Hee-Young Lim, pianist Holger Groschopp, and the world premiere of The Dove Descending written especially for the Arditti String Quartet.
Jakub’s music has also been featured at a number of festivals, including: the Coriole Music Festival (2019), the Huntington Estate Music Festival (2019), the Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festival (2018), the Musica Viva Festival (2017) and the London International Mime Festival (2016).
