Janina Fialkowska

Chopin Polonaise Fantaisie Nocturne in B major, Op.9 No.3 Impromptu in G flat major Prelude in F sharp minor 2 Waltzes Ballade No.4 in F minor Scherzo No.4 in E major 3 Mazurkas Op.50 Scherzo No.1 in B minor Janina Fialkowska has enchanted audiences for over 30 years with her lyrical sound and musicianship. Her career was launched with a prize-winning performance at Arthur Rubinstein’s inaugural Master Piano Competition in 1974. She is one of the great interpreters of the piano works of Chopin and Mozart, and champions the music of 20th-century Polish composers. She temporarily lost the use of her left arm to cancer ten years ago but made a full recovery and in 2013 received the ‘Instrumentalist of the Year’ Award from the BBC Music Magazine for her Chopin Recital II disc.
