Each of Krystian Zimerman's concerts is an event. The quality of the pianist's charismatic interpretations manages to establish each of the works he performs as a new reference. Zimerman's career is a model of dedication and ability to focus on the quality of the music itself. Numerous conductors can testify this through the now historical concerto recordings they have made with the Polish musician: Leonard Bernstein in Beethoven and Brahms, Herbert von Karajan in Schumann and Grieg, Seiji Ozawa in Liszt, Pierre Boulez in Ravel. Zimerman has remained deeply attached to his country (and to the music of his compatriots Chopin, Szymanowski and Lutosławski) although he has been living in Basel since 1981.
