Young Polish pianist to give solo concert

    YOUNG polish pianist Adam Kosmieja will perform a solo concert this Friday night, an event of the ongoing Belt and Road music season. His program will highlight representative works from Chopin and other Polish composers, as well as a piece from contemporary Chinese composer Ye Xiaogang.

    Kosmieja will perform Chopin’s “Etude in C Minor,” also known as the “Revolutionary Etude” or the “Etude on the Bombardment of Warsaw,” an early piece dedicated to his friend Franz Liszt, “Nocturne in G Minor,” “Scherzo No. 3 in C-sharp Minor,” “Three Mazurkas,” “Waltz in C-sharp Minor” and “Waltz in D-flat Major,” and “Polonaise in A-flat Major.” Also called the “Heroic Polonaise,” this composition is one of Chopin’s most admired compositions and has long been a favorite of the classical piano repertoire. The piece, which is very difficult, requires exceptional piano skills and great virtuosity to be interpreted at a high degree of proficiency.

    The pianist will then play “Two Mazurkas” by Szymanowski, the most celebrated Polish composer of the early 20th century. The chosen piece shows a strong influence from the folk music of the Polish Gorale people.

    The program also includes works by more modern Polish composers Kazimierz Serocki and Kazimierz Sikorski and Chinese composer Ye Xiaogang’s “Namtso.” An outstanding member of China’s young composers, Ye named his work after a beautiful mountain lake in Tibet.

    Pianist Kosmieja is a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with Solomon Mikowsky. In 2013 he took up doctoral studies with Katarzyna Popowa-Zydron and Jerzy Sulikowski at the F. Nowowiejski Academy of Music in Bydgoszcz, where he also teaches. He also participated in piano master classes under masters like Paul Badura-Skoda, Gary Graffman and Ivan Moravec.

    His repertoire and performing experience range from the Baroque up through contemporary music, including experimental music.

    He won the first prize at the Mieczyslaw Munz Piano Competition in New York (2009), Chopin Piano Competition at Columbia University (2010) and Josef Suk International Piano Competition in Prague (2013). Last year he released his debut album “Serocki — Complete Works for Solo Piano” under the Dux label.

    Time: 8 p.m., April 14 Tickets: 80-480 yuan

    Venue: Shenzhen Grand Theater, 5018 Shennan Road East, Luohu District (罗湖区深南东路5018号深圳大剧院)
