Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gustav Piekut is establishing himself as one of the most interesting young classical musicians in Scandinavia. He has been described by the West-Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung as “a poet and virtuoso at the piano” and “stunned the audience with his transparent playing and sense of timing” according to Hamburger Abendblatt. After debuting with the South Jutland Symphony Orchestra at the age of 12, and appearing two years later as a soloist with the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Gustav Piekut regularly travels across Europe for recital, concerto and festival performances. In addition to winning four prizes at Aarhus International Piano Competition in 2017, Gustav Piekut has taken prizes in the Dublin International Piano Competition, Piano Read more Campus Competition Pontoise, Astana Piano Passion, Balys Dvarionas International Music Competition, International Piano Forum Sanok and many others.
