At a mere twenty-five years of age, the virtuoso pianist Marek Kozák can boast a number of dazzling triumphs in a myriad competitions, including some of the most prestigious. And so his name is almost automatically linked with the title of Semifinalist of the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, the top contest in its discipline worldwide, or with success at the renowned Prague Spring Competition a year later, in 2016. Concert stages are graced with his elegant “Klánský legacy” of cultivation, and audiences are thrilled by his ability to “present with great humility and without ostentation that which the composer wished to express”.
The author himself commented on his piano recital program as follows:_"“With my selection I want to give tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach and his later
admirers. A certain role in this decision was played by my “other” face – as an organist. I will follow up the French Suite in G major with Busoni’s monumental transcription of Bach’s violin Chaconne in D minor. The first part of the concert will conclude in a lighter tone with three parts of Partita in E major for solo violin, arranged by Sergei Rachmaninoff. After the interval I will then present the composers who created the transcriptions of Bach’s works with their own compositions – the passion and emotions of Sonata in B-flat minor by Sergei Rachmaninoff will be complemented by a selection from the 24 Preludes of Ferruccio Busoni, a perfect counterbalance to the sonata.”_
