Alt
ARTUR PACEWICZ
Piano

The pianist Artur Pacewicz was born in Poland and graduated at the Stanislaw Moniuszko Academy as a scholar of Prof. Waldemar Wojtal. He continued his education at Hanover University for Music, Drama and Media. There he studied with Prof. Gerrit Zitterbart taking another exam in 2004.

Of the numerous competitions at which Artur Pacewicz was awarded prizes, two are most important to him: a first prize at the International Chopin Competition in Varna, Bulgaria and Award of the Milos Magin Competition in Paris, France.

From 2009 to 2011 he was a lecturer at Hanover University for Music, Drama and Media. The pedagogical aspect of teaching music appealed to him from the start. So, master classes were a logic development. Classes and courses followed in Poznan (Poland) and alongside with the festivals „Music without borders“ and „World Classics at the piano“ in Rysum (Germany).
