Born in Poland to a family of musicians, Magdalena Baczewska has enjoyed a multifaceted career as a pianist, harpsichordist, educator, and recording artist. Her performances have been hailed as “eloquent and technically flawless” (The Washington Post) and praised for “high musicianship and refined musical taste” (Polish Daily News). The American Record Guide applauded Baczewska’s debut album, A Tribute to Glenn Gould, as “world-class.” Her doctoral dissertation, In Search for Bach’s Cantabile: The Role and Aspects of Oratory and Singing in Keyboard Interpretation, was published in 2009 by Lambert Academic Publishing. Baczewska resides in New York City where she is a full-time faculty member and Director of the Music Performance Program at Columbia University.
