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
