A singer and actor from Poland, Artur Gotz, was a star performer at the Polish and Slavic Center’s (PSC) concert where he presented all-time favorites from the repertoire of the legendary Kabaret Starszych Panów, a satirical cabaret made for TV in the late 1950 to mid-1960s.
“Family”, “Virgin Anastasia”, “Children are bored when it rains”, “Ways of making a career” – these are just examples of songs written by Jeremy Przybora and Jerzy Wasowski, the hosts and producers of the legendary Kabaret Starszych Panów [Elderly Gentlemen’s Cabaret] whose performance gained country-wide popularity in 1958-1966.
Artur Gotz, 39-year old actor and singer, famous from such popular TV series as “Klan”, “M jak Miłość”, “Ojciec Mateusz”, and “Na Wspólnej” presented over a dozen of songs from Kabaret Starszych Panów at the stages of PSC at 176 Java Street on June 4, 2022. More of the iconic songs can be found on Gotz’s CD “Kabaret Starszych Panów – Przeboje Wszechczasów” which he recorded to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the creation of the cabaret.
“I went through an enormous number of recordings to get the best pieces for this album,” the artists said. In between the songs Gotz entertained the audience with witty anecdotes from his past performances.
“I am happy I could come to this concert. It reminded me of the times of my late teens. Mr. Gotz, who is a young musician, connects generations by performing this repertoire,” said one of the members of the audience. “I knew very well this would be a great concert, because I know the artist from his other projects. I couldn’t miss it,” said another member of the audience, Andrzej.
Artur Gotz also presented a satirical song “Cards on the table” from his newest album “Love from Facebook” with songs written for him by Igor Jaszczuk. After the performance spoke with the audience and signed his CDs.
