Piotr Anderszewski (2002)
2002 Gilmore Artist Piotr Anderszewski 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 appeared with the Berlin Philharmonic, the Boston, Chicago and London Symphony Orchestras, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Royal Concertgebouw in addition to recitals in Zurich, London, Paris and Tokyo, and a European tour with German violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann.
Recognized for the intensity and originality of his interpretations, Anderszewski is a recording artist with Virgin Classics. His discography includes recordings of Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations, Bach’s Partitas Nos. 1, 3 and 6, works by Chopin, and his recording of Szymanowski’s solo piano works received the Classic FM Gramophone Award in 2006 for best instrumental disc.
Anderszewski collaborated with filmmaker Bruno Monsaingeon on a second prize-winning documentary, Unquiet Traveller, which was shown at the 2010 Gilmore Keyboard Festival. A third film is due for release in 2011 documenting his performances of music by Schumann.
Born in Warsaw to Polish-Hungarian parents, Anderszewski currently lives in Paris and Lisbon.
