I’m afraid I can’t translate into Polish, but if you’re wondering about the word “match”. A close synonym would be “equal”. In context, “match” is a verb, the second definition (as a verb) in the MacMillan: 2 [TRANSITIVE] to be equal to something else in amount or level Our office failed to match the growth of the rest of the company. be matched by something: The rise in student numbers has not been matched by an increase in teaching staff. match something for something: Japanese companies are beginning to match US companies for size. https://www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/british/match_2 By the way, I’m not sure why there is only a comma separating “jazz” and “opera” — I would expect a conjunction like “and”.
