The internationally acclaimed Polish pianist Maciej Grzybowski in a recital of classic and contemporary piano music.

His interpretations of Bach, Berg, Schönberg, Szymanski and Mykietyn show the touch of a genius! There are certainly none today to equal his readings of Bach! …How refreshing and exciting it is to be in the presence of such great art.
