Piano Prodigy in Poland

Thomas Nickell, a brilliant 16-year-old pianist and composer from the United States, gave two private recitals in Poland in June.

Praised by critics for his “seasoned” technique, Nickell has been described as a prodigy. His talent was acknowledged last year when he won the prestigious Young Steinway Artist title given to the best young pianists.

Nickell came to Poland in June to give two recitals at the Bristol Hotel in Warsaw and at the Somianka Manor House, northeast of the capital. The concerts were organized and sponsored by Somianka Manor House owners Paweł and Ola Esse, and by the Alexander & Buono Foundation, an international organization that has launched the careers of more than 300 musicians around the world.

The concert in Warsaw featured compositions by Ludwig van Beethoven, Frederic Chopin and Franz Liszt, in addition to Sonata No. 3, written by Nickell himself. At Somianka, the young pianist was accompanied by the Sinfonia Viva orchestra directed by Tomasz Radziwonowicz.

The Polish recitals are part of Nickell’s world tour, which kicked off in April at the famous Carnegie Hall in New York City. Nickell has since performed in Ancona and Bologna, Italy. After Poland, the tour will take him to Venice and Madrid.
