 Update me on new releases by Michalowski

Aleksander Michalowski (1851 - 1938)

Aleksander Michałowski’s father was a major-general in the Russian army, and his mother (Róża Regulska) was his first piano teacher. Michałowski was a prodigy who by the age of nine could play Weber’s Konzertstück Op. 79. He travelled to Leipzig to continue his studies at the Conservatory where his teachers were Carl Reinecke and Ignaz Moscheles and then went to Berlin to complete his studies with Carl Tausig, one of the greatest pianists of the day.

At his debut, the eighteen-year-old Michałowski played Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor Op. 11 at the Leipzig Gewandhaus. From 1874 he lived in Warsaw and gave many concerts throughout Poland and Russia. In Warsaw he met Chopin’s pupil Karl Mikuli (1819–1897) who versed him in the tradition of Chopin’s style of playing. Apparently, Michałowski played the Larghetto from Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor Op. 21 to Franz Liszt who is reported as saying, ‘Only a Pole can play Chopin like that.’
