Peter Jablonski -TIPA Chief Advisor-
Jablonski’s disarming openness and the generosity of his playing were more than confirmed. But there was a great deal more going on –in terms of his acute response to style and scale, with moments of heart-stopping lyricism, barnstorming bravura and coruscating brilliance.
Born in Sweden to Swedish and Polish parents, Peter Jablonski studied piano and percussion at the Malmö Academy of Music, and later piano and conducting at the Royal College of Music in London. At the age of nine he appeared at the `Village Vanguard` festival in New York, receiving praise from the legendary Miles Davis. In his final year at the RCM Jablonski was invited by Vladimir Ashkenazy to record his debut disc with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for Decca, which launched his professional career.
Since his debut in Washington DC in 1992 and at the Royal Festival Hall in 1993, Jablonski has performed and recorded with the world’s finest orchestras, including the Philharmonia, BBC Symphony, Philadelphia, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, La Scala Philharmonic and NHK Tokyo among others. He has collaborated with such distinguished conductors as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Riccardo Chailly, Myung-Whun Chung, Charles Dutoit, Valery Gergiev and Esa-Pekka Salonen.
His extensive discography on Decca, Altara Records and Octavia Records features award-winning releases and recordings of new works. Jablonski’s disc of Shostakovich, Rachmaninov and Lutoslawski with Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Royal Philharmonic went on to win the coveted Edison Award. His world premier performance of Wojciech Kilar’s Piano Concerto, a work written for and dedicated to him, received the Orpheus Award at the Warsaw Autumn Festival. Jablonski’s recording of Liszt solo works on Octavia Records was awarded Disc of the Month in the Japanese Gramophone in 2013. His latest recording, Grieg Album, was released on Octavia Records in May 2015.
Highlights of past seasons include recitals at the London International Piano Series at the Queen Elizabeth Hall,at the Berlin Konzerthaus, Stockholm Berwaldhallen, Seoul Arts Centre and Tokyo Suntory Hall, as well as in Munich, Istanbul and Santiago de Chile, and concerto engagements with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Finnish Radio Symphony, Warsaw Philharmonic, Brussels Philharmonic, Seoul Philharmonic, Tokyo Symphony and the Mostly Mozart Orchestra at Lincoln Center New York. He also performed at theChopin and his Europe Festival with the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra in Warsaw and toured with the Royal Philha rmonic in the UK.
Last season Jablonski made his debut with the Taiwan National Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Metropolitana Lisbon and São Paolo Municipal Symphony Orchestra, and returned for performances with the Qatar Philharmonic, Zagreb Philharmonic and Lübeck Philharmonic. He also made his recital debut at the Ravinia Festival in the USA. His engagements this season include debuts with the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra, Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, Belgrade Philharmonic and National Arts Centre Orchestra Ottawa, as well as a return to the Presidential Symphony Orchestra, Ankara, a recital in Toronto, a recital tour of Japan and a return to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for three concerts on tour in the UK.
