“This is virtuosity both young and timeless.” — Altamusica.com

92Y proudly present one of today’s most celebrated younger pianists — Rafał Blechacz, current winner of the quadrennial Gilmore Artist Award (chosen in secret by a jury), and a first prize winner of the Chopin International Competition. Praised by the great pianist Martha Argerich as “a very honest, extraordinary and sensitive artist,” he’s only the second Polish artist — after Krystian Zimerman — ever to be signed by Deutsche Grammophon. He has already released five albums on the label, including three on his compatriot Chopin. He brings that renowned interpretation to 92Y along with works by Bach and Beethoven.
