Bach, Beethoven and Webern already met on Piotr Anderszewski’s memorable first solo album of 1996, hailed by many critics as a work of genius. The fascinating pianist frequently returns to this repertoire, presenting it in ever new light. Michał Mendyk wrote about his famous live recording from Carnegie Hall: “Anderszewski combines confidence with lightness and poetic quality. Bach’s partita No. 2 came first – the pianist found his way through its contrapuntal labyrinth with the grace of a butterfly. For the finale he played Beethoven’s late A Flat Major Sonata Op. 110 a – a display of narrative mastery, smoothly developing from immaterial intimacy to violent, nearly physical conflict. [...] Anderszewski can still surprise and he likes to leave the beaten track, destroy his stereotypical image, and leave his fervent fans in suspension. He is an artist in the old style, a ‘restless traveller’.
Piotr Anderszewski’s piano art is far from academic. He escapes simple classifications and cannot be assigned to any specific piano school, but he also avoids provocation for its own sake. What he expects from his audience is intellectual dialogue. He asks questions and inspires reflection concerning the complex relations between a work’s construction and its message. The rare opportunity to hear such a charismatic artist perform live is surely the dream of every music connoisseur and this concert is definitely a must‑go.
