Szymon Nehring

Winner of the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Tel Aviv (2017) and a laureate of the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw (2015), where he received a distinction, the audience prize and numerous additional prizes. In 2015, he was awarded a Krystian Zimerman scholarship. He trained with Stefan Wojtas at Bydgoszcz Academy of Music. Since the autumn of 2017, he has been honing his skills with Boris Berman at Yale School of Music. He has performed in many countries of Europe and South America, and also in Canada, the US, Israel and China. He has been a guest of the ‘Chopin and his Europe’ three times before. He has played with such orchestras as the Warsaw Philharmonic, Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century, Israel Philharmonic, Santander Orchestra and Sinfonia Iuventus, under the baton of distinguished conductors including Jacek Kaspszyk, Jerzy Maksymiuk, Grzegorz Nowak, Krzysztof Penderecki, John Axelrod and Omer Meir Wellber. He recently performed for the first time at such venues as Carnegie Hall and Wigmore Hall, and in 2018 he will be making his debuts at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen, Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona and Konzerthaus in Berlin. 2016 brought the release of CDs featuring the Chopin concertos (Sinfonietta Cracovia, cond. Jurek Dybał and Krzysztof Penderecki) and Penderecki’s ‘Resurrection’ Piano Concerto under the composer’s baton. The Fryderyk Chopin Institute has released his recordings from the Chopin Competition in its ‘Blue Series’ showcasing the most interesting personalities from the competition, and last year saw the release of his first studio recording for the Institute (also his first recording on a period instrument).
