Composer and pianist Ryszard Rynkowski, one of Poland’s most popular singers, will give a concert Oct. 23 at the Kongresowa Hall featuring his greatest hits in new arrangements prepared especially for the occasion.

Rynkowski, known for his trademark deep, powerful voice, started to learn to play the piano in a state music school. In 1973, he moved to Warsaw and started working with the Warsaw Operetta, for which he wrote his first compositions. In 1977-1978, he played piano in a group called Gramine and then joined the Victoria Singers, a group whose lead singer was Grzegorz Markowski, well known since the early 1980s as the frontman of hugely popular rock group Perfect.

After Markowski left Victoria Singers, Rynkowski took over the lead vocals and the group changed its name to Vox. It was then that Rynkowski wrote “Bananowy Song,” which went on to become one of the group’s greatest hits.

In 1987, Rynkowski embarked on a highly successful solo career. He won a competition at the Polish Song Festival in Opole in 1989 with a song entitled “Wypijmy za błędy,” which became a smash hit. In later years, he won the festival competition three more times. In 1991, he released a best-selling album entitled Szczę¶liwej drogi już czas which catapulted him into stardom, ensuring that follow-up albums instantly went gold and his singles became hits.
