24-year-old Kamil Pacholec is one of the most promising Polish pianists of the young generation. He is a laureate of several international piano competitions. He received an honorable mention at the 18th International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, second prize and special prizes at the XI International Paderewski Piano Competition in Bydgoszcz (2019), first prize at the Livorno International Piano Competition (2018), The Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli Prize (2018) and the first prize at the 47th National Chopin Piano Competition in Katowice, Poland (2016). His success led him to perform internationally in Poland, Germany, France, Italy, the UK, Ukraine, Japan, Brazil, and the USA. Following his appearance in the Chopin Competition he was invited to perform in venues such as Carnegie Hall (Zankel Hall), Berliner Philharmonie, The National Philharmonic in Warsaw, Lutosławski Polish Radio Concert Hall, Theatro Sao Pedro in Sao Paulo, Gusman Concert Hall in Miami, among others. He was invited to prestigious festivals, including the International “Chopin and His Europe” Festival in Warsaw, the International Chopin Festival in Duszniki-Zdrój, “Chopin a Paris” Festival, Chopin Festivals in Nohant, Miami, London, and Tokyo, the Paderewski Festival in Raleigh. His performances were praised by critics. The Gramophone stated that “many established pianists would be happy to claim Pacholec’s effortless fingerwork and idiomatic flair for themselves”. Lawrence Budman pointed out his “strong technique and interpretive skills” in South Florida Classical Review. He is currently under the tutelage of Kevin Kenner at the Frost School of Music in Miami. His former teachers include Ewa Pobłocka, Wojciech Świtała and Małgorzata Kowalska.
