David Gilmour invites Polish musicians to work on new album Print E-mail

Yesterday's issue of Poland's most reputable newspaper, Rzeczpospolita, reported that David Gilmour has invited famous Polish musicians to work on his new album.

We have been aware that David has been hard at work, first in London's Abbey Road Studios, then in his own Astoria houseboat studio, on new material, for the last couple of months or so. This is from impeccable sources close to the musician. The article in Rzeczpospolita gives a little more detail on progress, and here's a translation of the story for you...

Zbigniew Preisner was asked to co-produce and to do orchestral arrangements on David Gilmour's new solo album. Leszek Mozdzer is involved too. Preisner said that they had already recorded some music in Gilmour's own studio in London.

"Probably it will be David's solo album, but it is not out of the question that it could be a new Pink Floyd album. They will be deciding together later - Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright" said Preisner.

"It was so amazing to meet this great master. It's a great honour to share a table with Gilmour, not to mention working with him in the studio" said Mozdzer. Another Polish engineer, Rafal Paczkowski, will be involved in orchestral session recording for the project.

Zbigniew Preisner is Poland's leading film music composer and is considered to be one of the most outstanding film composers of his generation. Leszek Mozdzer is one of the greatest keyboard talents on the Polish music scene today.

Our thanks to those who wrote with details of this story, in particular Marek Grzesiak, who also provided this translation of the article.
