Outstanding Polish musician's classic recital

CONSIDERED one of the outstanding musicians of his generation, talented Polish pianist Piotr Anderszewski will present a recital at Shanghai Concert Hall on Wednesday.

The recital features acclaimed works by Robert Schumann, Chopin and Bach as well as his adapted "Robert Schumann: Six Pieces in Canon Form."

The pianist has been recognized by both audiences and critics for the intensity and originality of his interpretations of classics. During his career, he has garnered several high-profile awards, including the prestigious Gilmore Award, given every four years to a pianist of exceptional talent.

Anderszewski has also been the subject of some award-winning documentary films by director Bruno Monsaingeon. One of the films is "Unquiet Traveler," an unusual artist portrait capturing Anderszewski's reflections on music and performance. Another new film documenting Anderszewski's performances of music by Schumann is due for release later this year.

Compared with skills, he attaches much more importance to musical concepts and inspiration. "I don't play piano for myself or to please the audience," Anderszewski says. "I want every performance to be serious and sincere from the depths of my heart."

Venue: Shanghai Concert Hall, 523 Yan'an Rd E.
