TONIGHT!

Renown Pianist Krzysztof Srebrakowski

Krystof

Artistically expressive performances blended with dynamic technical dexterity, reflects the musical journey of composer and pianist Krzysztof Srebrakowski.  At the age of five Krzysztof, was “discovered” as a child prodigy when he was heard playing the organ at his local church; by the age of eleven Krzysztof composed his first musical piece, “Prelude in f# Minor”.  The rest is history. Krzysztof Srebrakowski was born in Zary, a small town located in the Western part of Poland near the German border.  During his childhood Krzysztof was schooled in the traditions of great masters like Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Debussy, Ravel, and many others.  Most notably, Krzysztof was influenced by magical essence, and pure beauty of Baroque music. Raised in the city of Zary ,where George Philipp Telemann( 1681- 1767) was a kapelmeister, Krzysztof was schooled in the masterpieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frideric Handel, Domenico Scarlatti and many other composers of the 18th Century. As a result these musical Influences can be heard in Krystof’s performances to this day.  Learn more about our featured performer at his website:  www.krystofonline.com
