Projects

“Pianist Vnukowski revives music of a neglected composer in impressive Carnegie debut…this assertive, fearlessly virtuosic Chopin style was filled with thoughtful exploration and a kind of questioning illumination. For his insight and daring, no less than his advocacy of a forgotten compatriot composer, Vnukowski is a pianist to watch!”

– Linda Holt, New York Classical Review

“He didn’t simply play. He engaged.”

– William Littler, Toronto Star

“Vnukowski communicates the emotions within the music. I was moved at several points throughout the recital.”

– Myron Silberstein, Fanfare Magazine

“These technically demanding works are played to the hilt by the Polish-Canadian Daniel Vnukowski.”

– Bruno Repp, American Record Guide

“A virtuoso pianist…Vnukowski plays with sympathetic understanding.”

– Phillip Scott, Limelight Magazine

Honoured to take part as Artistic Director in a conference organized by Ontario Presents together with the wonderful Cree cellist Cris Derksen and led by 40-year veteran of the arts Barbara Scales.

It was a casual but highly engaging discussion on the importance of creative collaborations as a critical tool to our survival in the performing arts. We also heard Cris' premiere arrangement "Nice And Clean" which took part at our summer music festival this summer, together with Mayumi Seiler- Violinist and Angela Park.

An honour to share the stage with Graham Greene and listen to his remarkable stories of growing up as a boy on Six Nations Reserve.

Aside from his breakthrough role as Kicking Bird in Kevin Kostner's Dances With Wolves for which he was nominated as Best Supporting Actor, he's played everyone from an old Jewish man to a black transvestite. He's won Gemini Awards and the Earle Grey Award for Lifetime Achievement by the Academy of Canadian Film and Television.

For years, we've been told to use April 1 as the Russian master's official birthday and this has been confirmed by the Name Authority File on record at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Yet, Rachmaninoff himself celebrated his birthdays on April 2nd and his...
