Part Two followed in 2008 with the Live After Death DVD – the seminal 1984 concert recorded at Long Beach Arena (L.A) during the World Slavery Tour – and the band embarking on their groundbreaking Somewhere Back In Time World Tour 2008/9, which saw them play to over two million fans in almost 40 countries.

The Vancouver Chopin Society presents Wojciech Switala

The Vancouver Chopin Society presents Wojciech Switala
Event on 2012-10-06 00:00:00
Concert 1 Wojciech Switala
Saturday, October 6, 2012 at 7:30 pm
Magee Theatre

When Polish pianist Wojciech Switala made his Vancouver debut in 2007, Lloyd Dykk wrote in the Vancouver Sun:

"He especially shone in the Chopin half, beginning with two nocturnes,…. Switala put the slightest clues of menace into his languorous, sensuous beginning and then the keyboard suddenly erupted into tigerish, racing octaves."

His recital here was a true revelation for those who attended, but it came as no surprise as he belongs to the international elite of outstanding Chopin interpreters, so we welcome his return to this special season celebrating the 15th anniversary of our
Society. Wojciech Switala's 2 CDs: Waltzes and Other Works and Rondos, Allegro de Concert, recorded for the National Edition, won the Grand Prix du Disque Frederic Chopin award in 2000 and 2005 respectively. The only other pianist who won this award twice was Murray Perahia. Few people know that he was close to winning the 12th International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 1990, having highest scores on the board but he walked out of the semi-final round. He won the prize for best performance of a Polonaise.

Wojciech Świtała has given concerts in most European countries, Argentina, the United States and Canada.
