  • Janina Fialkowska piano

Janina Fialkowska made her professional debut more than half a century ago. The Canadian pianist’s mature artistry still draws from the spontaneity and virtuosity of her youth, combined now with the insight and wisdom of experience.

Her latest Wigmore Hall programme includes Gretchen, Liszt’s moving reflections on the tragic figure from Goethe’s Faust, and the vibrant virtuosity of Faschingsschwank aus Wien, Schumann’s entrancing evocation of the Vienna Carnival.
