Piotr Paleczny is one of the most outstanding Polish pianists, a prize-winner of five international piano competitions. He completed his piano studies under Jan Ekier at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw. Also hugely influential in shaping his artistic personality were his contacts with Arthur Rubinstein and Witold Lutosławski. He has received many lofty and prestigious awards in Poland and abroad, including the Commander's Cross of the Order of the Rebirth of Poland, the ‘Gloria Artis' Gold Medal for services to Polish culture and the Mexican Aguila Azteca Order.
