?Anna Miernik is one of the few really outstanding artists of the young generation.?
Zbigniew Lampart, composer, music critic
As a soloist and a chamber musician she has already performed in 24 countries (Armenia, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, Georgia, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Mexico, Montenegro, New Zealand, Peru, Poland, Serbia, Slovenia, Turkey, USA) on 5 continents. Her debut in Carnegie Hall in New York (Weill Recital Hall) took place in November 2015.
She has won several international and national prizes. In 2013 during her concert tour in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and USA Anna gave 15 recitals, including a concert in the world-famous Sydney Opera House, as well as in Brisbane, Calgary, Canberra, Melbourne, Ottawa, Perth, Wellington (New Zealand). Other cities where she has performed include Rome, Bari (Italy), Tbilisi (Georgia), Yerevan (Armenia), Almaty (Kazakhstan), Tel Aviv and Haifa (Israel).
Anna received her honours degree from the Academy of Music in Kraków in 2013, after completing her studies in professor Andrzej Pikul?s piano class. She has also studied under tuition of professor Sławomir Zubrzycki (constructor of viola organista). Anna participated in master classes run by eminent pedagogues, such as prof. Paul Badura-Skoda and prof. Dina Yoffe.
Her first album containing Sonatas by J. Brahms and C. Franck was released in June 2014. The idea for this CD originated with Patrycja Piekutowska, world-renowned violinist, who invited Anna to join her in the project. The first promotional concert of the CD was held in the Royal Theatre in Łazienki Królewskie in Warsaw. The recital was attended by important personalities from the world of music, television and business. The CD has received favourable reviews and is considered to be ?an enjoyable portion of classics? (Newsweek Polska).
As her repertoire comprises the works of more than 20 Polish composers (including Chopin, Lutosławski, Szymanowski), the artist regularly adds their compositions to the programs of her concerts. In this way she promotes Polish music abroad. Thanks to her fascination with modern music Anna participated in several premiere performances of various compositions ? some of them were even dedicated to her.
In recognition of her artistic and scholarly accomplishments Anna Miernik has been awarded numerous scholarships. Her recordings have been broadcast by various media and reviews of the concerts were published in international newspapers.
