Piotr Anderszewski is regarded as one of the most prominent pianists of his generation and appears regularly in all of the world’s major concert halls. His collaborations with orchestra have included appearances with the Berlin Philharmonic, the London and Chicago Symphony Orchestras, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Gewandhaus Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, which he also conducted from the piano. Recitals have taken him to the Barbican Center in London and the Royal Festival Hall, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, Carnegie Hall and the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.

His recordings include Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations, which received the Choc du Monde de la Musique; the Grammy nominated Bach Partitas 1, 3 and 6 as well as a recording with works by his countryman Szymanowski. His album with solo works by Schumann received two BBC Music Magazine Awards in 2012, including the Recording of the Year. His recording of Bach’s English Suites 1, 3 and 5 received the Gramophone Award for best instrumental album in 2015.

After the solo album „Fantaisies“ with works by Mozart and Schumann in February 2017, the Mozart Piano Concertos No. 25 & 27 with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe was recorded in January 2018. Then in 2021, his interpretation of J. S. Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier Book 2 was awarded the Gramophone Classical Music Award.

Recognised for the intensity and originality of his interpretations, Piotr Anderszewski has been a recipient of several high-profile awards over the course of his career, including the prestigious Gilmore Award, which is presented every four years to a pianist of exceptional talent.

The director Bruno Monsaingeon shot two award-winning documentaries about him for ARTE.

The first, from 2001, sheds light on Anderszewski’s special relationship to the Diabelli Variations, while the second, “Piotr Anderszewski, Traveler Without Rest” (2008) is an artist portrait and reflects Anderszewski’s thoughts on music, concert activities and his PolishHungarian roots. A third documentary by Monsaingeon, “Anderszewski plays Schumann” was shot for Polish television in 2010.

In the 2023/24 season, Piotr Anderszewski will present his new recital program among others in Warsaw, Cologne, Hamburg, London, Berlin, Prague, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Geneva, Lisbon, Paris, Tokyo and at the Gilmore festival in Kalamazoo. He is also looking forward to concerts with, among others, the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo, the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, as well as playlead projects with the Sinfonia Varsovia and the Israel Camerata, with whom he will tour.
