Bartłomiej Nizioł (violin)

Bartłomiej (or Bartek) Nizioł was born in Szczecin, Poland, in 1974 and studied with Jadwiga Kaliszewska in Poznań and Pierre Amoyal in Lausanne. He attended masterclasses with Zakhar Bron, Ruggiero Ricci, Mauricio Fuks and Michael Frischenschlager. While still studying in Poznań in 1991 he won first prizes at the International Henryk Wieniawski Competition and the International Violin Competition in Adelaide. The following year he also won first prize at the International Violin Competition in Pretoria, Eurovision in Brussels, and the Marguerite Long–Jacques Thibaud Competition in Paris. He has performed with the English Chamber Orchestra, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, NDR Hamburg, New Japan Philharmonic, Sinfonia Varsovia and Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, under conductors including Yehudi Menhuin, David Zinman, Marek Janowski, Fabio Luisi, Heinrich Schiff and Krzysztof Penderecki.

Concert tours have taken Bartek Nizioł to Asia, Africa, South America and throughout Europe. The New York Times has described his playing as having masterful control and a beautiful singing tone. As a passionate chamber musician he has appeared alongside musicians such as Pinchas Zukerman, Elisabeth Leonskaja and Sol Gabetta, and in August 2011 he was invited to perform with Martha Argerich at the famous ‘Chopin and his Europe’ festival in Warsaw. He was an Echo Klassik prize-winner in 2015. Bartek Nizioł plays a 1727 violin by Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù.
