Piotr Anderszewski

Piotr Anderszewski was born in Warsaw to Polish-Hungarian parents. Currently he lives in Paris and Lisbon. He is regarded as one of today's most inspired musicians and is a regular visitor to major concert venues around the world.

In recent seasons he has given recitals at London's Royal Festival Hall, the Wiener Konzerthaus, Carnegie Hall New York, the Mariinsky Concert Hall in St Petersburg and Munich's Herkulessaal. His collaborations with orchestra have included appearances with the Berlin Philharmonic, the Boston, Chicago and London Symphony orchestras, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Royal Concertgebouw.

Anderszewski has performed with many of the world 's major conductors including Claudio Abbado, John Eliot Gardiner, Bernard Haitink and Charles Dutoit. He also works regularly with members of the newer generation of conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel, Stéphane Denève and Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

An exclusive artist with Virgin Classics since 2000, Anderszewski 's first disc on the Virgin label was Beethoven's Diabelli Variations, a much-lauded recording which received a number of prizes including a Choc du Monde de la Musique and an ECHO Klassik award. His discography also includes a Grammy-nominated CD of Bach's Partitas 1, 3 and 6 and a critically-acclaimed disc of works by Chopin. His affinity with the music of his compatriot Szymanowski is captured in a highly-praised recording of the composer's solo piano works, which received the Classic FM Gramophone Award in 2006 for best instrumental disc. His most recent recording, devoted to solo works by Robert Schumann, is due for release in November 2010.

Recognised for the intensity and originality of his interpretations, Piotr Anderszewski has been singled out for several high profile awards throughout his career, including the prestigious Gilmore award, given every four years to a pianist of exceptional talent.
