Andrew Rosciszewski

Described as "someone worth watching" (Alan Young, NY Music Daily, 2017) "listener-friendly, but fresh, with a nice shimmer...” "intelligent…precisely interwoven musical thoughts.” and “a significant figure in new music.” (Michael Fressola, S.I. Advance)

Andrew Rosciszewski, composer and bassist, is known for his genre-bending compositions that fuse art music with rock in a colorful, eclectic style that reflects his passion and diversity of a wide musical palette. Influenced by composers such as Shostakovich, Bartók and Górecki, Andrew is intrigued and inspired by the folk music of his Polish heritage. This influence, when combined with his love of progressive rock music, makes rhythm a cornerstone of his works, often emphasizing shifting meters and incorporating song and dance idioms into his compositions.

Rosciszewski’s music has been performed by the Vermont Philharmonic, under the baton of Music Director Lou Kosma (MET Opera Orchestra), Evening Rhapsody Wind Trio with the commission of “Fantastic Adventure” as well as Musical Chairs Chamber Ensemble, Inc. (MCCE) with whom he has built a long standing relationship. A recipient of the New Music USA Met Life Creative Connections grant as well as several ASCAPLus awards, his music has been performed at numerous venues including the Barre Opera House, New York University, Staten Island Museum, amongst others.

His most recent release "Sonic Real Estate" joins his previously released 2017 World Premiere recordings of "String Quartets nos. 1 & 2,""Humble Genius – EP" (An EP of original rock songs), "Fantasie for Rock Band & Orchestra" and the concept album “frail’ty” by his progressive-metal band Eyes On Infinity. Other past events include a residency for Musical Chairs Chamber Ensemble's 2011-2012 season.

Rosciszewski is an award winning member of ASCAP and holds a BA from New Jersey City University where he studied composition with Dr. Stelio Dubbiosi.
