The way of combining classical pieces with jazz standards, improvisation and the compositions of his own, proves that the artist moves freely between musical styles. ARTur presents this modern approach to music during the Piano Impression concert.

You have to get to know this amazing composer, the word genius really doesn’t do him justice. For he is way more than that! When you listen to this young man’s music compositions, it will bring tears of joy to your eyes. To hear such sounds that bring movement in your body is just riveting. There’s no denying it’s something extremely special about this young artist.
Artur Sychowski is a pianist, composer, improviser and visionary who does not confine himself to the regid framework of classical music. His work can not be classified in any category. This is music that stimulates the imagination, providing an unforgettable experience, connecting casual listeners as well as sophisticated music lovers.
Mr Artur Sychowski, a pianist, composer and improviser of the young generation, presented a high artistic level and an extremely original performance of Fryderyk Chopin's works. Proper selection of the repertoire and understanding of the expectations of the demanding multicultural audience gathered during the recital at the New York University concert hall made a very positive impression on this special evening.
The uniqueness of Artur Sychowski's performance was mainly due to the fact that in his musical creation the concert grand piano became a full spectrum of various sounds of the instrument. During this extraordinary concert, he used not only the piano itself, but also mysterious props, which radically changed the face of music. We witnessed an extremely elegant, moving heart and senses of musical spectacle, which at times referred to the work of French Impressionists, where the main convention was catching the moment. Mr. Artur sounding the moment painted a French-Polish musical impression specially prepared to shake the hearts of the current special guests. Due to such an unconventional and surprising approach, Artur Sychowski, despite his young age, is already recognisable in Poland as a musician. This is evidenced by the fact that after information that Artur Sychowski will play at our ceremony, we obtained partial sponsoring of our event by the YAMAHA MUSIC corporation.
Polonia Society of Korona invited Artur Sychowski to perform a charitable concert due to his international fame in Europe to bring piece of Polish culture to our area. Per his request, the Flagler Palm Coast High School Symphonic Orchestra was to take part in the concert. (…) His performance was a huge success for all involved. He was great and I am eager to be able to see him perform again. Everyone in attendance was surprised and agreed that even through he is from other country, his music spoke volumes. There were tears, laugher singing along, and lots of applause.
Artur is not a classical artist. He expores the possibilities of the piano as an instrument and shared his findings with the public who grows more and more enthusiastic during the concert. Artur will play some classical works jazz works his own works and interprets famous works his own way with surprising effects. The public has literally beem seduced by Artur and hope to hear more of him soon. Knowing he is young we are sure he will find a way to make his way through on an international level. His inventness, talent and charm deserve to be world-wide known.
It's not often that you come across an artist that has everything that they need to become a huge International success. I have been promoting Artur Sychowski for several weeks now and his media reception has been amazing. Nothing but positive reviews from the press. He is a 'first class' pianist with impeccable credentials and skill. His latest release "Sanctus" tantalizes the ears and warms the soul with it's beautiful melodies and lifts. Live, Sychowski is a true master and leaves the audience in 'awe'. Sychowski is a dedicated pianist who is destined for music greatness.
Chairman of the Board of the Foundation for Artistic Development and International Cooperation MSM UNICCUM highly evaluates the artistic competence and skills of Mr. Artur Sychowski. (...) Mr. Artur Sychowski not only helped our Foundation during festivals or concerts, but also willingly took part in them as a pianist, improviser and composer. His last performance during the International Christmas Concert aroused great appreciation of the audience and standing ovation. We strongly support Mr. Artur Sychowski in his musical international activities and wish him further artistic successes.
When I look at ARTur I see a young Hans Zimmer who made a long journey from Germany, through Britain to finally find his artistic heaven in Hollywood and Santa Monica, California. Artur lives the same spirit as Hans Zimmer; similarly, he modifies his piano and includes new unknown melodic lines, he paves completely new path beyond the set borders. His music combines classic scores with contemporary sounds, bridging the wonders of classic music with modern, stimulating expressions. As a scientist, I do appreciate hard working spirit, devotion to archiving goals set and causing maximum impact. Artur has abundance of those properties, that is why I believe whichever artistic challenge he takes on, he shall fulfil it beyond expectation.
I was so touched by his art. One of his pieces presented during his solo act was called the “Heavenly Way”. It was strictly connected with the atmosphere of the place where this performance was held. The concert was organised at the church originally called "Karmelićanska crkva”, the biggest catholic Church in Sombor with the pipe organs. His piece resonated inside this building in a gorgeous way. Each his note was just perfectly balanced. The audience felt like Artur could change the perspective of hearing and moved everybody to another dimension. That was really unusual experience!
I was promoting him during his tour in Europe three years ago. His performances in The United Kingdom were part of his very first international concert tour as an individual artist. He gave two concerts in July; including the afternoon appearance at the St Ann Church in Manchester and his own-created “Piano Impression Concert” at the Forge Music Venue, Camden Town in London. His music is very original and his performances are truly unique and prepared with a lot of passion. He is very intriguing musician. I am sure his career will flourish and he will bring his novel performance ideas to diverse audiences world-wide.
With all responsibility I can say that ARTur belongs to the most interesting artistic personalities that I have met during my many years of teaching. (...) His rare, excellent, absolute hearing gift, artistic imagination and - as it turned out - high motor predispositions allowed successfully to develop an ambitious repertoire assessed on semester exams with the highest score. (...) I am convinced that the ability, passion and rare responsibility in shaping his own development in this age predispose Artur to undertake a serious stage career in the future.
During the ARTur's concert in the Theater Hall of the University of Gdansk, the analogy of the pianist to Fryderyk Chopin came to my mind. The icon of our culture (which few people know about) was a perfect improviser. He delighted the audience of Vienna, Paris and London by creating "ad hoc" pieces on a given subject and entwining them with virtuoso ornaments. Sychowski also presents the extraordinary ease of building sound surfaces with panache, surprising listeners with ideas that go beyond the imagination of the average person. As an arranger and the composer, he presents suggestive musical images in a way that is simply painterly. Gifted with remarkable technical ease, he focuses on the emotional side by building an interesting drama of both classical works and his works. He has an above-average artistic sensitivity which makes even the smallest composition make a fascinating whole. He is also characterized by diligence which leads to achieving maximum effects. He is a virtuoso in every way. In addition, from every piano, he brings out the most valuable in the instrument. Already after the first few phrases, he even makes magical contact with listeners. Applauded at concerts, rewarded at competitions in the country and abroad with the universe deserves to be met by a much wider audience. During lectures at the University of Gdańsk, I present Artur Sychowski's recordings and students usually demand to repeat them several times. There are plenty of pianists, but in this case we have a personality that stands out above many of them.
The original and very interesting program of the concert, which gathered a very large audience, consisted of the performance of classic works by Schubert, Debussy, Chopin, Bach and improvisation of their own works by ARTur. The artist plays with impeccable technique, a virtuoso flair and his improvisations are very well thought out and played perfectly. The numerous audience gathered solemnly awarded the artist with thunderous applause. I highly recommend Mr. Artur Sychowski as a very promising young artist.
Artur Sychowski is an extraordinary class young artist. Such people are said to follow their own path. They are visionaries. (...) ARTur, though he interprets the works of others, seems particularly interesting when he submits them to his own original transcriptions, in which the rich world of his emotions is reflected. He is not only a performer, he is the original performer, with whom music also triggers thinking about the place in which he will sound and the conditions in which the listener will interact with her. The concerts he organizes are actually 'total' events.
The University of Gdansk is a place where citizens of the world are educated, and after hearing the concerts of Artur Sychowski, one can say without any doubt that his personality and technique as well as unprecedented arranging perfection, create the artist with international potential. Besides, he is a man full of passion and professionalism, he can see that he knows what hard work means to train a workshop. (...) We had the honor of hosting Mr. Artur Sychowski three times on our stage. After the last concert - that is his original program "Classic Impression" created based on the works of Fryderyk Chopin, there was a long discussion between the students about the incredibly courageous and mature interpretation of the master's works by the young artist. In this case, no doubt, you can call Artur Sychowski's artistic level - world-class.
His concert performances of well-known arrangements and author's works have always aroused admiration of the audience. Always an unusual artistic event that distinguished Arthur from other pianists were his piano improvisations. Thanks to them, well-known songs in choral arrangements sounded even more interesting and took on a new shine. During an unforgettable concert at the Kaliningrad Philharmonic, Artur Sychowski also performed a solo piece by a Russian composer, Concert No. 3 "Toccatina" by Nicolai Kapustin, as a reference to the place where the concert was performed. Only mature musicians can play such a technically difficult score. For Artur, it was not a problem to perform this work, even if he received information about the possibility of playing such a song the day before. A short preparation was enough to play such a complicated pianistic work. The extraordinary ability to improvise and professional approach to the role of an accompanist in my opinion testifies to his artistic level and treatment as world-class music.
