Przemek Dembski- a multi-award winning concert pianist and Artistic Director of the Masters Music School in London is delighted to present this exciting musical journey through a variety of periods, styles and genres.
The “Contrasts-recital” explores the piano repertoire starting from its roots and interpretation of harpsichord music. It then invites the audience to explore romantic depths of music by Chopin, Scriabin and Liszt to eventually conclude with a virtuosic paraphrase combining elements of Argentinian tango, classical and jazz improvisation.
Przemek’s interest in classical and modern piano performance have been influencing his career and life choices from the earliest years and brought him to the Royal College of Music in London. He graduated with distinction in 2012 having studied with Kevin Kenner and Niel Immelman.
Przemek’s performances have taken him to many European countries and venues as a laureate and participant of numerous competitions and festivals. The most important recitals included: Steinway Hall and Royal Albert Hall – Elgar Room, St Martin in the Fields, St. James’s Piccadilly in London, Polish Cultural Institute in Madrid, Polish Cultural and Social Institute in London, Conservatoire de Paris to name just a few.
