Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Piano works by Karol Szymanowski pose a considerable challenge to their performers. Although the composer himself was an active instrumentalist, he never thought about his works in a purely pianistic way. This work is full of textural complexities which, in combination with numerous compositional indications, regulating tempo and dynamics, do not facilitate interpretation. This recording of a pianist who earned a reputation as promoter of Polish music, Radoslaw Sobczak, shows that even the most difficult textural traps do not pose any difficulty for this artist. Born in 1981 in Pisz, Radoslaw Sobczak completed a piano performance degree in the studio of Prof. Edward Wolanin at the Fryderyk Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw in 2006. He then supplemented his musical studies with Prof. Victor Macarov. The pianist won 2nd Prize at the 1 European Piano Competition in memory of Halina Czerny-Stefanska in Poznan (2008). He also won an honorable mention at the 14th Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw in 2000, receiving the title of 'Best Polish Competitor', along with many special prizes, among them a Yamaha piano from the Prof. Regina Smendzianka Foundation and a scholarship from the Crescendum est Polonia Foundation.
