Here you can find the whole press release after the concert in Carnegie Hall Weill Recital Hall, where Grzegorz Niemczuk made his debut performance on February 25th.
"Polish pianist Grzegorz Niemczuk, previously First Prize winner of the 40th National Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 2010, currently studies with Jeffrey Swann. As First Prize winner of the 2013 International Concerto Competition at Carnegie Hall, Mr. Niemczuk gave a highly accomplished and artistically distinguished interpretation of the Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, op. 21.
The slow movement wove a spell like a Chopin Nocturne, with expressive phrasing and perfectly gauged rubato. This was Chopin playing of the highest order, refined and subtle, inspired by bel canto singing. His elegant performance of the mazurka-based finale captured its dance-like essence.
Mr. Niemczuk’s playing was notable for its fluidity, extremely wide dynamic range—from resounding fortissimos to whisper-soft pianissimos, variety of tone colors, and dazzling virtuosity. Maestro Hostetter and the orchestra were responsive and supportive partners."
