Sponsored by PKN ORLEN

“This concert convinced everyone that the young pianist has already stepped on the threshold of his staggering career. The winner of Warsaw Competition deserves to be ranked with the renowned Martha Argerich and Maurizio Pollini… <…> He was a miraculous child, grew up without the surveillance of the grands; thus, by the will of God naturalness is his company since he was little child”.

Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung, 2006

“Young Pole Rafał Blechacz is a celebrity. The playing of the twenty-one-year-old pianist is very natural, without any unnecessary rush; he is a true sound architect”.

Süddeutsche Zeitung, 2007

“The young Pole revealed himself as a true master of Chopin,” “a magician of the piano enchants with sound colours,” “a miracle of Warsaw pianism,” “natural elegance of Rafał Blechacz” – these are the headlines of the press reviews for the concerts of the winner of the 15th Chopin Competition and a recipient of the Grand Prix. His list of special prizes is impressive indeed: the Polish Radio awarded him for the best performance of mazurkas, the Polish Chopin Society – for the best performance of polonaise, Warsaw Philharmonics – for the best performance of concerto. Blechacz also received Krystian Zimerman’s special prize for the best performance of Chopin’s sonata. Polish oil company ORLEN has presented the pianist with Steinway piano.
