Prize winner of major piano competitions, Marcin Fleszar is a pianist who combines brilliant virtuosity with the poetry of music.
His interpretations are "thoroughly enchanting" (ClassicsToday) – “his music touches your heart“ (Anzeiger Burgdorf).
Fleszar shares his passion through a wide range of musical tradition and keyboard instruments, including historical instruments and the organ.
In his debut album for Rubicon Classics in 2020 he performs the timeless Suite in
A minor of J.Ph. Rameau on the piano instead of the traditional way on the harpsichord, combining the old instrument technique with the modern one.
To refer to Robert Schumann`s 210th anniversary Marcin Fleszar choose for the second half of the album the "Davidsbündlertänze" which were the composer’s secret engagement present for his future wife Clara Wieck.
The improvisational character of the music, its deeper meaning hidden in the rhetorical figures and the different colors and shadings of harmonies are the hallmark of Fleszar`s artistic creation.
Born in Poland, the homeland of Frédéric Chopin, Marcin Fleszar`s fascination with the composer led him to include all of Chopin`s compositions in his wide concert repertoire.
Under the direction of Maria Jõao Pires, Marcin Fleszar was an Artist-in-residence in the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, “… a prestigious international center of excellence for artistic training of exceptionally gifted young musicians…, the musical elite of tomorrow...”
As a devoted chamber musician since 2011, Fleszar performs with Agata-Maria Raatz in Violin & Piano DUO.
"Marcin Fleszar is a pianist who has great sensitivity and notable instrumental abilities"
