Anna Ciborowska is a pianist who likes to stray off the beaten track. Even though her concert repertoire contains many works from the pantheon of fortepiano literature, her recordings are mostly of works that are seldom performed. With Agnieszka Duczmal and the Amadeus Polish Radio Chamber Orchestra she recorded Rafal Stradomski’s Concerto for Piano, Saxophone Quartet and String Orchestra. In Belgium she has cooperated with contemporary composer and respected author Gaston Compère, who has dedicated many of his works to her. His music features on two discs involving Anna Ciborowska- “Polders” and “Lux Mea”. The Polders suite was used in the soundtrack of a film produced by ARTE and RTBF. Her recording of Julius Zarembski’s Quintet is also in the archives of RTBF ( Belgian Radio) . “Piano Works”, her disc with the music of Maria Szymanowska, is the fruit of her passion for seeking new repertoire and contains many works recorded for the first time.
One original project which perfectly reflects this pianist’s personality is “Exprezz”. “Exprezz” is a meeting of jazz and classical musicians searching together for new forms of artistic expression by improvising in various styles. The group has played concerts with great success in Belgium, France and Poland.
As a soloist, Anna Ciborowska has played with several orchestras, including the Dutch orchestra Amadeus in the chamber music hall of the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and the chamber orchestra Ricercare in the Concert Noble in Brussels. She has given recitals in many European countries. Besides solo performances she is an active chamber musician. She often gives concerts in duo with saxophonist Cezariusz Gadzina. They played together in Bruno Walter Hall in Lincoln Center in New York , Rome, Berlin, Brussels, Paris.
