Polish-Canadian pianist Katarzyna Musial, regarded as "a major talent, blessed with an astounding technique and an interpretive panache" by Chicago Classical Review, has performed as a concerto soloist, recitalist and chamber musician throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Her playing has been described by New York Concert Review as "a pure delight... wonderfully evocative... vividly detailed." Her interpretations "plumbed emotional depths with harmonic coloring." Ms. Musial has been characterized by the Beijing Press as a pianist "who has entranced her audience with her brilliant musical skills." Conductor of the New York Camerata, Richard Owen, considers her "one of the finest pianists I've ever had the privilege of hearing."

In addition to having won First Prize at the 2011 Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition (New York), Ms. Musial was also a prize winner at the Krzysztof Penderecki International Competition of Contemporary Chamber Music (Cracow), the Kay Meek Competition (Vancouver), as well as a recipient of the Alban Berg Prize for outstanding merit (Vienna) and the Philip Cohen Award for outstanding performance musicianship (Montreal).

Recent highlights include a Carnegie Hall debut, performances at the Vancouver Olympic Games, International Beethoven Festival (Chicago), Tempietto Festival Musicale della Nazioni (Rome) and Music in the Mountains Festival (California). Other major engagements have included a seven-city tour of China in spring 2013, as well as concerto performances with the New York Camerata, Chicago Prometheus Chamber Orchestra, Toronto Sinfonietta, Orchestre Symphonique de LIsle, McGill Chamber Orchestra, Ensemble Arkea and Bielsko Chamber Orchestra, with which she opened the International Bach Festival (Poland). Her new CD, Come Dance with Me, recorded by Meridian Records has received rave reviews and has been played on over 100 radio stations; including the BBC (UK), CBC (Canada), WQXR, WFMT (USA) to name a few. The album was selected "CD of the Week" on WGBH in Boston and "Download of the Week" on KDFC in San Francisco.

Poland - 100 Years - Free Again - Celebrate


On November 11, 1918, the guns of World War I fell silent. The three imperial powers that had dominated Poland for nearly two centuries, eventually carving it up and devouring it for themselves, lay defeated or in disarray. The way was clear for the rebirth of Poland as a modern nation, for the white eagle to soar free of the black eagles that had plagued it for so long.
