Pianist and harpsichordist Magdalena Baczewska has been praised for her “world-class playing” by the American Record Guide. Combining profound musicianship with a passion for educating, she is increasingly known for her innovative recital programming ideas and making her audiences think. "Baczewska enlightens…" writes the Palm Beach Arts Paper. Her performances, hailed as “eloquent and technically flawless” (The Washington Post), have been broadcast on radio stations across America, including WQXR, NPR, Voice of America, and on European Radio and Television. Baczewska's album, “A Tribute to Glenn Gould” was hailed by the American Record Guide as “an uncommonly good recording,” and the Gramophone described it as “beautiful and intimately scaled.” This season’s highlights include a performance of Tan Dun’s Banquet Concerto in Beijing’s National Center for Performing Arts with the China National Symphony conducted by Tan Dun, and a European/US tour of Bach’s Goldberg Variation, performed on the piano and the harpsichord. Magdalena Baczewska is a full-time faculty member and Director of the Music Performance Program at Columbia University. She has taught at the Mannes College New School for Music, John J. Cali School of Music, Montclair State University, and Manhattan School of Music, International Keyboard Institute, and the New York Piano Festival. More information can be found at:
