Piotr Anderszewski returns to Wigmore Hall on the 25th anniversary of his first appearance



Piotr Anderszewski, one of the most individual and outstanding pianists of his generation, is returning to the Wigmore Hall on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of his first appearance there.
Piotr first sprung to the world’s attention in the 1990 Leeds Piano Competition where, after delivering “a magisterial exposition of Beethoven” (Wendy Thompson & Fanny Waterman, Piano Competition: The Story of the Leeds), he left the stage mid-performance of his second piece, Webern, essentially forfeiting an almost certain position in the finals.
Anderszewski has since gone on to win numerous awards for his musicianship throughout his career, including the coveted Gilmore Artist Award, given every four years to a pianist of exceptional talent as well as being showered with prizes and awards for virtually every CD released.
He has also been the subject of two award-winning documentaries by the film maker Bruno Monsaingeon for ARTE: ‘Piotr Anderszewski plays the Diabelli Variations‘ (2001), and ‘Piotr Anderszewski, Unquiet Traveller‘ (2008).
Returning to the stage at the Wigmore Hall on 9 February, Anderszewski will perform a programme of Bach, Schumann and Szymanowski. Find out more on the Wigmore Hall website
