Andrzej Wiercinski in Warsaw Sfera Sacrum Easter Festival

Warsaw Philharmonic – Chamber Music Hall

Piano Recital

Andrzej Wierciński – piano

Playing of crystalline clarity by Andrzej Wiercinski in the Beethoven-Penderecki Sfera Sacrum Easter Festival
From Scarlatti of such jewels with rays of light just sparkling from his wonderfully agile fingertips.
A Litanei by Schubert in a sumptuous transcription by Liszt played with truly heartrending delicacy contrasting with the transcendental fireworks of the A minor Paganini study.
Has Red riding hood ever had a more terrifying journey than with his Rachmaninov op 39 n. 6 Etude Tableau?
And I would never like to climb Ligeti’s Diabolic Staircase with this expert climber where even watching from the sidelines left one completely breathless.
But a Chopin B Minor Scherzo played with such mastery where Chopin’s extraordinary opening exuberance dissolved into the most sumptuous sounds and colours as he shaped the passionate contours as only a true native musician could.The beautiful Polish folk song that Chopin quotes in the central section was played with a magical sense of balance that seemed to give the piano a golden sheen before the final outburst of quite transcendental playing.
Rachmaninov’s Corelli variations were given an extraordinary performance of beauty and exuberance that I have already spoken about in a previous recital together with his recital that was so unforgettable last summer https://christopheraxworthymusiccommentary.wordpress.com/2020/08/16/andrzej-wiercinski-in-poland-from-the-ridiculous-to-the-sublime/
