Ewa Kupiec

Profile

„ Pure substance”, Ewa Kupiec is praised by Fono Forum, Germany”Ēs leading magazine for classical music. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung certifies: ”ČKupiec plays with a rare mixture of spirit, a faultless technique, a complete understanding of musical texture and an ability to shape music with transparency and an impressive richness of colours. Her playing is brilliant but never obtrusive, full of atmosphere and subtly virtuosic."

At the beginning of the season 2010-11, Ewa Kupiec will be guest of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra with Stanistaw Skrowaczewski, followed by engangements with the Dusseldorf Symphony, Stuttgart Philharmonic and the Osaka Century Orchestras. Among others, she will present her Chopin solo programme in the Stuttgart Liederhalle and return to New Zealand (Auckland Symphony Orchestra) and Australia (Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra).

Ewa Kupiec regularly performs at the world”Ēs leading festivals but also with major orchestras, which in recent seasons have included Orchestre de Paris, Minnesota Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony, Het Residentie, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Gulbenkian Orchestra, Dresden Philharmonic, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Warsaw Philharmonic.

Other conductors with whom she has worked include Marin Alsop, Neeme Järvi, Xian Zhang, Sakari Oramo, Semyon Bychkov, Herbert Blomstedt, Krzysztof Penderecki, Lothar Zagrosek, Gilbert Varga, Christoph Poppen, Andrey Boreyko oder Marek Janowski. Renowned Polish maestro Stanislaw Skrowaczewski has initiated and supported an exceptionally fruitful musical collaboration between the two, and as such they have performed all over the world and, released in 2003, recorded Chopin's piano concerti together.

Ewa Kupiec is closely connected to the music of Chopin and other Polish composers. For his 200th birthday she offers three different Chopin recital programs. Next to standard works, her concerto repertoire includes works by Loewe or Veress. For Sony, she has recorded Wtadystaw Szpilman”Ēs music, known from the movie „ The Pianist”.

Ewa Kupiec is recognised as one of Europe's most dedicated interpreters of contemporary music. Her Berlin Konzerthaus performance in 2005 of Schnittke”Ēs First Piano Concerto with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra was the first performance of this work since 1964 and was released by Phoenix in 2008, together with other Schnittke works for piano and orchestra. Her recital- and chamber music programs often include contemporary works, and different composers have dedicated pieces to her.

Among her numerous CDs are works by Grazyna Bacewicz, Lutostawski, Szymanowski (ECHO Klassik 1997) and Paderewski. Haenssler released her recording of Janácek solo works in 2007 and her next CD (2010, Solaris) will be solo works by Chopin and Schubert. Following the piano concerti, she recorded Schnittke”Ēs piano quintet in summer 2009 for Phoenix. Her latest CD with works by Chopin and Schubert was released 2009: Zal.

Ewa Kupiec studied in Katowice, at the Chopin Academy in Warsaw and at the Royal Academy of Music in London, and in 1992 she won the ARD Music Competition (category duo piano/cello).
