About Krystian Zimerman

Pianist Krystian Zimerman stands as one of the most sensitive and exacting pianists to have emerged in the latter part of the 20th century. The possessor of an exclusive lifetime contract with the Deutsche Grammophon label, he has a large repertory running from Beethoven to Witold Lutosławski; he was the dedicatee of Lutosławski's Piano Concerto and gave its world premiere at the Salzburg Festival. Zimerman has made more than 40 recordings. He recorded very little between the late 1990s and the late 2010s but returned in 2017 with an album of Schubert sonatas. In 2021, he released his second cycle of Beethoven's piano concertos, joining the London Symphony Orchestra.
