Rafał Blechacz belongs to the kind of exceptional pianists, who are easily overlooked. The devout Catholic defies the laws of commercial exploitation when it's possible. His concert appearances are rare and he spends the gained time to penetrate into the music that he wants to get sounds . Blechacz sees music as a continuous river - each piece has its pre and post-history, musically as in the life of a composer. Chopin's work is particularly suitable for such an approach, and it is no wonder that Blechacz's participation in the International Chopin Competition in 2005 brought the music world astonishment. He towered over the competition in an unprecedented degree - the second prize was not awarded to illustrate the artistic distance significant.
