Twenty-five-year-old Polish pianist Rafał Blechacz plays the music of Chopin, Debussy, and Szymanowski in this Master Pianists Series recital under the sponsorship of the Friends of Chamber Music. Blechacz, one of today’s rising stars, took First Prize at the prestigious 2005 International Chopin Competition in Warsaw. Since then he has performed at the Royal Festival Hall and Wigmore Hall in London, with the Berliner Philharmonie, the Herkulessaal in Munich, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt/Main, the Liederhalle in Stuttgart, at the Konzerthaus in Vienna, the Tonhalle in Zurich, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Salle Pleyel in Paris, the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, and Avery Fisher Hall in New York, among others. He is an annual guest at the Salzburg Festival and several other music festivals in Europe.
He has recorded three classical best–selling albums with Deutsche Gramophon, one of the few young artists sponsored by that label. This recital is his Kansas City debut. (Unquote)
