JANINA FIALKOWSKA, piano, February 1, 2018 7:30 pm
"Indeed, lesser mortals may well weep with envy at such unfaltering authority. She has done her one time mentor, Arthur Rubinstein, proud." — Gramophone
Janina Fialkowska came to prominence as a protégé of Arthur Rubinstein and a laureate of the First Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition. Today, she carries on that master’s legacy as one of the leading interpreters of Chopin in the world. Her all-Chopin program will bring the composer into clear focus as only Janina Fialkowska can. As The New Yorker says, "Fialkowska plays Chopin with a warmth, poetry, and detail of phrasing that is disappointingly rare today; she places her gifts at the composer’s feet."
