About Krzysztof Malek:

Krzysztof Malek is a young Polish pianist currently residing in Sydney, Australia. He has graduated with highest distinction for extraordinary artistic achievements from a special ‘Talents School’- the Z. Brzewski State Music High School in Warsaw where he studied with Professor Teresa Manasterska, president of the Polish division of EPTA- European Piano Teachers Association. Krzysztof later became her pupil at the Frederic Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw where he studied until 2002. He then met and performed for legendary Professor Victor Makarov who had taken up a position as Head of Piano at The Australian Institute of Music in Sydney. A few months later Krzysztof was invited for full scholarship studies with the Professor. After several years due to tragic circumstances Professor Makarov was forced to stop teaching all his students and Krzysztof chose to continue his studies with another piano legend, Professor Lee Kum Sing at the Vancouver Academy of Music in Canada. He had also taken part in Masterclasses with some of the greatest pedagogues including Victor Merzhanov (Moscow Conservatory), Oxana Yablonskaya (Juilliard School), Vladimir Viardo (Moscow Conservatory), Alexey Orlovetzky (St Petersburg Conservatory), Christopher Elton (Royal Academy of Music, London) and several others.

Krzysztof is a prizewinner at a number of national and international competitions. He had started at an early age of 10 by winning his first national contest, which was soon followed by his debut with an orchestra. In 1997 he was a prizewinner at the Paderewski Competition, in 1999 he received Second Prize at the International Chopin Competition in Vilnius and in 2001 he was awarded First Prize at the International Bacewicz Competition in Lodz. In 2007 he received First Prize and Gold Medal at the Chopin Competition in Sydney.

Since his early successes in piano competitions, Krzysztof Malek has continued to travel and perform around the world. So far music has taken him to nearly twenty countries in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. He has made a number of archive recordings for radio and television in several countries. He has also played the main role of Frederic in a film about Chopin. In 2007 his first DVD featuring Grieg Piano Concerto was released internationally.

In recognition of his achievements he was awarded the prestigious prize-scholarship by the Polish Ministry of Culture.

In 2008 Krzysztof received a Distinguished Talent Permanent Residency of Australia.
