Piotr Anderszewski, piano

Pre-concert reception at 6:30 p.m. presented in the SOPAC Loft by the Seton Hall Slavic Club.

Praised by the New York Times for his “unabashedly personal interpretations,” “persuasive intensity,” and “brilliant exuberance” Piotr Anderszewski, one of the outstanding musicians of his generation, returns to the Seton Hall Classical Series for a solo piano recital. 

We thank the Office of International Programs for their support of this program.
