Let’s celebrate Chopin’s birthday together! Artur Haftman, an international award winning Polish pianist, will play at Ognisko Polish Hearth Club to celebrate Chopin’s 210th birthday. Fans of classical music (and in particular Chopin’s masterpieces), could not have missed a name of Artur Haftman lately, exceptionally talented, young Polish pianist who lives and studies in London. He won a prestigious scholarship, ‘The Carnwath Piano Scholarship’, as the only one of candidates from the UK. You can read our exclusive interview with Artur here.
“I don’t believe I’ve ever heard a young pianist in concert whose sound and initial attacks were as lovely and rounded as that of the Pole Artur Haftman. Maybe only Murray Perahia 40-plus years ago was as ear-opening. Sonically, Haftman’s recital Friday night in the Foundation for the Chinese Performing Arts 26th Annual Music Festival at Walnut Hill stands as a piano high point of the last few years, but it was top-drawer in many other aspects as well.” – fragment of Artur Haftman’s review from The Boston Musical Intelligencer from 30th July 2017.
