Karol Radziwonowicz

An exquisite pianist, well-educated in Poland and USA. He has been artistically active for many years, performing with many well-known symphonic orchestras and talented conductors. He takes part in many international music festivals.

His artistic voyages lead through all the continents. He is the world’s only pianist whose recordings of Fryderyk Chopin were taken to a space station and were played during the “Endeavour” space mission in February of 2010 – on the 200th anniversary of our brilliant composer’s birthday. Also on the occasion of the Chopin Year, he recorded an album with Chopin’s Miniature masterpieces on a special Bösendorfer piano – “Chopin” model.

The pianist is also a pedagogue and sits at the jury of many international piano competitions. His pedagogical activity was recognised when he was appointed the president of the Polish chapter of the EPTA (European Piano Teachers Association). Karol Radziwonowicz is the president of the International Society for Polish Music, named after Ignacy Jan Paderewski in Warsaw.
