The Dean of Hereford’s Piano Recital, performed by Janusz Piotrowicz de Jagiellon

Fundraiser for the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal

Thursday 20 October 2022, 7.30 pm

The Very Revd Sarah Brown, Dean of Hereford, invites you to attend a special piano recital in College Hall, performed by renowned pianist, Janusz Piotrowicz de Jagiellon. 

Janusz will perform a moving programme featuring the music of Scarlatti, Mozart, Chopin, Liszt and Rachmaninov. This intimate recital will be an exclusive opportunity to experience a celebrated musician in the beautiful surroundings of College Hall, fundraising for a powerful cause.  


As a schoolboy, Janusz Piotrowicz made his piano concerto debut in Windsor Castle with Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No 3, and his London recital debut with Chopin's Second and Third Sonatas and Brahms’ Paganini Variations. After winning the Nawrocki Prize for the most poetic interpreter in the 1975 Warsaw International Chopin Piano Competition, he launched his international career, giving up to 300 performances a year and staging three-part epic recital programmes. In 1994 he performed to 5,000 people at the Chopin Memorial in Poland's capital, on the 50th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising. 

Piotrowicz is founder and conductor of the Orchestra of the World (L'Orchestre du Monde). He is also founder and artistic director of the Ripon International Festival of Music and the Arts. In 1986, he established The World Trust, which promotes and supports humanitarian causes across the globe.
