Tchorzewski is the most expressive of pianists and the finest of collaborative artists.
He is a fine pianist and a particularly acute accompanist who phrases and breathes with his singer.

According to a MusicWeb International review, Jakub Tchorzewski is “the most expressive of pianists and the finest of collaborative artists”. He has performed across Europe and the United States, as well as in Japan and Brazil.
Born and raised in Poland, Jakub currently lives in Italy, where he has been invited to play at important music festivals like Biennale Musica in Venice, Serate Musicali in Milan, Bologna Festival and Nuova Consonanza Festival in Rome. Recently he performed in Rome at the Quirinale Palace, in Venice at the Teatro La Fenice, in Milan at the Teatro Filodrammatici, in Padova at the Pollini Auditorium, in Rovigo at the Accademia dei Concordi and in Trento at the Philharmonic Hall. Abroad he played at the Philharmonic Halls of Warsaw, Lviv and Bucharest as well as during Festivals “Warsaw Autumn”, “Poznań Musical Spring” and “Musical Autumn of Cluj-Napoca”.
He has recorded sixteen well received by international music press CD albums, released by Acte Préalable, Dux, Musiques Suisses, Tactus, Vermeer, Warner Music Poland and IMD Music & Web labels. His interest in forgotten or rarely performed repertory led him to record World Premieres of such composers like Sándor Veress, Gino Gorini, Ugo Amendola, René de Boisdeffre and Roman Palester.
A dedicated chamber musician, Jakub has collaborated, among others, with acclaimed violinists Tomasz Tomaszewski, Agnieszka Marucha and Dejan Bogdanovich, cellists Bartosz Koziak and Luca Fiorentini, flutists Silvia Careddu, Berten D’Hollander and Carlo Tamponi, the clarinetist Vincenzo Paci, the oboist Paolo Pollastri and ensembles like the Duo Viennese and the Guadagnini String Quartet.
Contemporary music is another field of Jakub’s interest. He took part in the premiere performances of works written by Giovanni Bietti, Alessandra Ciccaglioni, Federico Gardella, Ardian Halimi, Katarzyna Kwiecień-Długosz, Filippo Perocco, Marcin Stańczyk and Alex Stein. Krzysztof Meyer expressed himself about the performance of his Cello Sonata op. 99 recorded by Izabela Buchowska and Jakub Tchorzewski in the following way: “Your recording is excellent in all respects. It is exactly how I imagined my Sonata while writing it.”
Jakub Tchorzewski graduated from the Fryderyk Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw under guidance of Alicja Paleta-Bugaj. He studied also with James Tocco at the Musikhochschule Lübeck, Tomasz Herbut at the Hochschule der Künste Bern as well as Mack McCray at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
Currently he works as a collaborative pianist at the Venice Conservatory and since 2014 he has been a member of the European Chamber Music Teachers' Association.
