Message from John French, Artistic Director
I would like to invite you to a special fund-raising event in my home in Midland on Saturday November 24th. Enjoy an evening of great music for piano in an intimate setting when Brookside Music Association presents the internationally acclaimed pianist Daniel Wnukowski.
Hailed as “rapturous and glowing” by International Record Review and “an inspirational and devoted pianist” by Life & Arts — Financial Times, Polish-Canadian pianist Daniel Wnukowski has performed throughout Europe, North America, South America and Asia in prestigious concert halls. He has performed with many orchestras, including the Polish Radio Orchestra, Sinfonia Varsovia, Orchestra Filarmonica Marchigiana, Poznan Philharmonic, and Arthur Rubinstein Philharmonic Daniel Wnukowski inaugurated the 2017 year in Warsaw, Poland as a special guest at the National Philharmonic Hall, performing Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” under the direction of Jerzy Maksymiuk. The concert was broadcast live on television and a commercial DVD recording was made available. On May 5, he performed at the Austrian Parliament in remembrance of Holocaust victims targeted by Nazi Germany. This deeply, meaningful event was also broadcast live on Austrian television.
In May 2011, his all-Liszt recital was recorded and broadcast over European and U.S. radio stations. At the beginning of 2010, he inaugurated the Chopin year in Poznan, Poland, together with Metropolitan Opera Soprano Aleksandra Kurzak and was chosen as a Samling Scholar. In May of that same year, he performed a special recital in Tokyo, Japan, to commemorate the unveiling of a new Chopin monument in that city. This also led to a debut in Singapore, in the hall of the Singapore Chinese Orchestra. His outdoor concert at the Singapore Botanic Gardens received rousing ovations by a crowd of close to 3000 people.
He was trained at the Lake Como International Piano Academy in Italy where he worked with distinguished artists such as Dmitri Bashkirov, Menahem Pressler, Claude Frank, Fou Ts’ong, John Perry and William Grant Naboré and at the Peabody Institute of Baltimore under the guidance of Leon Fleisher.
Tickets are only $50 which includes wine and cheese.
