Born in 1974 in Łodź, Poland, Piotr Plawner began studying the violin at the age of six. Just three years later, he made his stage début as a soloist with orchestra. He has won first prize in no fewer than five international violin competitions. The most important of these were the International Festival of Young Talents in Bayreuth (1991), the International Wieniawski Competition in Poznań (1991) and, in 1995, the prestigious International Music Competition of the ARD in Munich. Piotr Plawner was the third musician to receive the distinction of first prize in the violin category in the fifty years of the competition’s existence. Piotr Plawner has performed as a soloist all over Europe, in the Middle East and the United States, playing at many famous venues, including Copenhagen (Tivoli), Paris (Chatelet), Berlin (Schauspielhaus), Munich (Herkules Saal), Stuttgart (Liederhalle), Barcelona (Palau de la Musica Catalana), Madrid (Teatro Monumental) and Amsterdam (Concertgebouw). He has been a guest of major European orchestras and collaborated with the world’s most distinguished conductors. He has made many recordings for radio and television, for Bayerische Rundfunk, WDR SDR, SWR, ORF, DRS, TVE and Dutch television, among others. Piotr Plawner plays a Tomasso Balestrieri violin.
