Anthony Adkins

Anthony Adkins was born in England and resides in London. At the age of 17 he won scholarships to both the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music. Accepting the latter, he studied for five years with Eric Harrison and Bernard Roberts. During these studies he represented the Royal College of Music in foreign tours and in master classes, including some under the direction of Nadia Boulanger. He was a finalist in the Chappell Gold Medal Competition. Soon after leaving the Royal College of Music, Anthony Adkins was awarded a London début recital at the Wigmore Hall. This concert was such a success that he was immediately invited back to give a second concert 6 months later. Anthony Adkins’ reaction to this acclaim was not what the musical world might have anticipated as he then won the coveted Chopin Fellowship from the Polish Government enabling him to work with the eminent Professor Jan Hoffmann at the Academy of Music in Kraków. On completion of these intensive studies, Professor Hoffmann’s assessment of Anthony Adkins was profoundly simple – ‘a great artist’. Since then, Anthony Adkins has played for innumerable important occasions and has frequently appeared at the Wigmore Hall and the Royal Festival Hall, London. He has toured the UK extensively and engagements abroad have included Austria, France, Germany, Holland, Hong Kong, Poland, Spain (including recently, 3 times for the Festival Musica Mallorca in Palma and Chopin concerts in Valldemossa), Switzerland and the USA. Anthony Adkins’ outstanding reviews from far and wide confirm and emphasise the extent of his formidable international reputation. Sudkurier, Germany wrote about him “A brilliant pianist” and The Daily Telegraph, UK described his performance “A virtuoso technique at the service of a perceptive musical mind”. Anthony Adkins has often played before the Royal Family in London and recently he performed in Colombo, Sri Lanka, where he played Grieg’s Piano Concerto (“A stellar performance”) – The Daily Mirror, Colombo). This was followed by a private concert for the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka and other foreign dignitaries. In addition to solo and concerto performances, recent concerts have also included Sarah Fox (soprano), Nadja Merzyn (soprano),  Waltraud Mucher (mezzo soprano), Shaul Kofler (cello), Corinne Larzul (flute), Juan Jose Pardo (clarinet), Emmanuel Bleuse (cello), Sophia Ackermans (soprano) and Yoon-Kwung Cho (cello). A programme about him was recorded for BBC radio; he has broadcast on Radio Szczecin and has appeared on German and Sri Lankan television. Anthony Adkins is a highly experienced pedagogue and has been invited to sit on international jury panels for competitions in Hong Kong, Germany and the UK.

Andrzej Tatarski

Andrzej Tatarski completed his piano studies and graduated with distinctions from a class of Professor Olga Ilwicka-Dąbrowska of the Academy of Music in Poznan.

He made a lot of first performances of contemporary works of Polish composers. His artistic works included numerous archival records for Polish and foreign radio stations, records and television and film performances. The artist sits on juries of Polish and international piano competitions, such as, among others, the Polish Chopin Competition held in Warsaw, the Ignacy Jan Paderewski International Competition held in Bydgoszcz and International Competition of Piano Duets held in Bialystok.

She has performed as a soloist for major Italian and Swiss music associations: Lyceum in Florence, Rotary Club in Pisa, Ars Nova in Certaldo, University of Pisa, La Schubertiade , Festival of Music in Geneva and Freiburg.
