In 2005, a young Polish pianist was the uncontested winner of the 15th Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw. What’s more, Rafal Blechacz took home special prizes for the best performances of mazurka, polonaise, concerto and sonata as well. That led to an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon, which in turn led to “Best of the Year” honors from Gramophone Magazine for Mr. Blechacz’s recording of the Chopin Piano Concertos. With those bona fides, the young Pole is ideally suited to perform the varied works on this concert.
