From a review of the CD:

» "Brahms, Chopin, Schumann"

"...Filip Wojciechowski's creations are not run of the mill, not conventional, but fully original, vital and artistically very mature. (...) What's particularly charming about his playing is his warm, soft sound, great culture, outstanding understanding of temporal form and space, power on the keys while retaining a refined sound..."

"Muzyka 21"

"...virtuoso interpretation of Chopin pieces - very lyrical and extremely precise technically..."

"Gazeta Wyborcza"


"...magnificent, nuanced dialogue with the orchestra in Beethoven's Concert in E-flat major..."

"Der Bund"


"...great applause broke out after his rendition of Chopin's "La ci darem la mano" in B major, opus 2; the delight grew greater still after he played a jazz improvisation of the work as an encore..."
