Kasparas Uinskas: Frédéric Chopin 24 Preludes, Op. 28


On 13 June, pianist Kasparas Uinskas will give a solo concert at the Sapieha Palace, where he will perform a cycle of 24 preludes, Op. 28, by Polish composer Frédéric Chopin at the Great Hall.


Kasparas Uinskas, who studied at the Warsaw University of Music named after Frédéric Chopin, the Juilliard School of Music in New York, and holds a Licentiate of Arts degree from the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, about the programme of his upcoming concert says: ‘Frédéric Chopin’s music is one of the closest to my soul. It embodies the most sensitive human emotions. His music is brilliant because every note, sound and melody has a meaning and a place. Chopin’s music requires the utmost pianistic training and at the same time is extremely understandable and accessible to many. In this concert I will perform all 24 preludes that the composer wrote while spending the winter in Mallorca with his beloved George Sand. I think everyone will hear the feelings and emotions Chopin experienced.”


Internationally acclaimed pianist Kasparas Uinskas has performed at the world’s most important concert halls and festivals, and has been praised by music critics for his exceptional artistry: “A great pianist and musician” (New York Concert Review), “Breathtakingly sensuous, it was absolutely magical” (Seen and Heard international).


Uinskas has performed at such renowned venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall, Washington’s J.F. Kennedy Center, London’s Wigmore Hall, the Berlin Philharmonic, Philharmonie de Madrid, BoZar in Brussels, and many more. These international performances have won not only the highest critical recognition, but also audience appreciation.

Following this concert, the Belgian record label Avanticlassic released a CD of works by Johannes Brahms. For the first time at this festival, Uinskas performed in 2018 in a duo with pianist Evgeni Bozhanov.
