As a soloist, accompanist, and pedagogue, pianist Joanna Sobkowska has enjoyed many professional opportunities in Europe, South America, and North America. A native of Poland, she currently resides in the USA.
Her repertoire ranges from the Baroque to the most contemporary music with a spezial emphasis on the latter. A connoisseur of the Polish avant-garde (the subject of her doctoral dissertation at Florida State University), she has brought a number of American compositions to life as well.
She premiered Ladislav Kubík’s "Concerto breve" for piano and orchestra and his "Portrait" for piano and percussion, and has also participated in various performances of his chamber and vocal works, including his "Duo concertante" for violin and piano and his "Triptych on the texts by Franz Kafka".
