Lesław "Leszek" Możdżer (born 23 March 1971, Gdańsk) is a Polish jazz pianist, music producer and film music composer.

Możdżer started playing piano at the age of five, after being encouraged by his parents. In 1996 he graduated with honours from the Instrumental Faculty of the Academy of Music in Gdansk. He is a winner of many music and culture awards, including Ad Astra, Jazz Oscars, Jazz Forum Award, and Jazz Melomani Awards. He started in a band of clarinetist Emil Kowalski and later played with the band Miłość, which was very successful. He is famous for his "Impressions", subtle new interpretations of Chopin's compositions.[citation needed]
