Janina Fialkowska has enchanted audiences for over thirty years with her glorious lyrical sound, her sterling musicianship and her profound sense of musical integrity. She is particularly distinguished as one of the great interpreters of the piano works of Chopin and Mozart. She has also won acclaim as a champion of the music of twentieth-century Polish composers.
In 1974 her career was launched by Arthur Rubinstein after her prize-winning performance at his inaugural Master Piano Competition in Israel and since that time she has performed with the best orchestras around the world.
Ms. Fialkowska’s discography includes Grieg’s Lyric Pieces, a Chopin Recital Disc, the Chopin Etudes Op 10 & 25, the 2nd & 3rd Sonatas and the Impromptus, a solo album of Liszt piano works, the 12 Transcendental Etudes, and a solo Szymanowski album and the highly praised CD, “La jongleuse – Salon pieces and encores.” She has also recorded the Paderewski piano concerto, the rarely heard piano concerto by Moritz Moszkowski, and the three Liszt piano concertos as well as the piano concertos by Chopin and Mozart in authentic versions consisting of piano solo and string quintet accompaniment.
In January 2011, Fialkowska was nominated for Canada’s Juno Award.
